    Hi all!

    Traded in my old '96 Chevy last week for a 2008 Ram Quad with 30K miles! It's literally indistinguishable from showroom condition. It was the only truck I even looked at - got it from the same place I got the Chevy 17 years ago - a used car lot that's been in business in the same location for 42 years.

    It's pretty basic I guess - Bighorn edition, so it's got nice wheels for stock. Base 4.7 but with a 3.92 and towing package. It's pretty zippy bit not too impressive mileage.

    I don't need a lot of creature comforts, I suppose, so I'm super stoked. cloth 60/40 manual seats. Cruise control, cold air, enough power to tow my little 12' trailer, and a smooth ride is all I really need. Plus I have a Tahoe to go nuts with doodads. As I'm in GA, though, and have just bought a black truck, obviously I'll have to add remote start.

    So my old, basic truck, that I'm thoroughly thrilled with...
