Default C7 GS Has A New Stablemate

Went truckless for 4 years.....couldn't do it anymore. The perfect alternative to the Vette. A little "blingy" compared to the GS but drives great.

Looks great, congrats and good luck with it. A man's got to have his truck, especially in Florida. I can relate. I don't use mine every day anymore, but it has hauled a lot of stuff and pulled a lot of stuff since I got it new in 2014. Wouldn't want to be without it. Kept it stock, it's not a Bubba truck with the nose pointed up in the air like so many down here. Enjoy the ride.

Love the new Rams! Theyíre like a luxury SUV with a bed. Was gonna buy one but I have a 2014 Longhorn that I canít find any reason to sell. It has 46,000+ miles on it and absolutely nothing has gone wrong. The only thing Iíve done is change the fluids,filters and tires. Still has the original brake pads, battery, key fob batteries. Alpine sound system is excellent, smooth quiet ride. The 2010 Ram I had before that was trouble free also.
Used to be a GM truck guy until bought a new GMC in 2004 that was crap. Had problems from about 5000 miles on. Steering was messed up, play in the drivetrain was massive. Had to have rotors and pads replaced at 20,000 miles. Brake lines rusted at 30,000. I sold it with about 35k on it. Wife has a 2017 Escalade that had to have rotors and pads replaced at 25,000 miles. An $80,000 truck. Wonít buy anything but Ram now.

Glad to hear your good fortune with your Ram! Hope I have the same experience. This thing drives amazingly. Traded in my Grand Cherokee which had no issues but once you had a truck...Ö..hard to drive anything else......other than a Vette of course.

On my 3rd ram now, all have been great trucks for me. My present one is a 16 lariat with the air suspension, which I really love.
