I honestly think that before this new model that the 3rd had the best looks, body lines etc. plus it had the Hemi which is a big check in the win column, i like the 1st and 2nd gens but I think all around the 3rd Gen had it right. but these new ones... they look awesome, i dont like the two tone ones or the ones with the chrome bumpers, but the fully painted monotone 4th gens look amazing

I am like Werm and will not say the 3rd gens are the best gens...yeah I know I might seam biased based on the fact I have a 2nd gen, but it is the 2nd gen that revolutionized what the Dodge Ram is today...the fact that Dodge said, wait...why does a truck HAVE to look like the standard "bricks" they were making up til 94...


I dont think haveing the Hemi is a "break the deal" situation either...the 318 and 360's are pretty solid engines...and the fact that the Hemi isn't a true Hemi anyway takes away from the name a little too.

Not knocking anyone with a 3rd gen or a Hemi, just stating my opinion.

Alright I loved my 3rd gen I had. At the time they were the best looking trucks on the Market!!! But then the 4th gen came out and I got my 2010!!! So all in all.... 4th gen wins in my book!
