I must bid thee farewell and adieu!!

Well, I must admit to doing the unthinkable over the weekend and that was trading my 2011 3500 for a new 2016 Ram 1500 limited. Being as I never tow anymore and really have about as much need for my 3500 as a dog would a bicycle. Its not really losing my baby I guess as much as it is losing that time zone in my life that is so haunting. Laying one's head on the pillow at night dwelling on it all really does leave one wondering if he made the right decision or not. Don't get me wrong, this Hemi will flat shag azz w/its 3:91's but nowhere the guts of the Cummins. The air suspension is superb. Oh well, maybe it'll grow on me. Anywho, Take care my brothers in cloth, the experience was something that I wouldn't have missed for all the world!!

1500 Eco Diesels

I'm not sure about ordering one but check the 1500 forum. I know there are still some on dealer lots.
