    Yeah...that is a good way to go too. I am required to have a vehicle 5 years or newer for work.

    Assuming this one does well I think I will get the lifetime warranty on the next one and keep it forever.

    I'm in my mid 30's. This is the 8th Vehicle I've owned and 4th Brand new vehicle. I've owned New Ford's, New GM's and this was my first New Chrysler product. Far and away better than the other 2. Also cheaper than the other two.

    When I purchased this truck 2-1/2 year ago, I did it with the intention of keeping it for the long haul. I've got 44,000 miles on it, and have used it to tow our TT around 7,000 mile of that. Some of that was a ploy to my wife to get a truck instead of the Ford Explorer I was driving around. I've never driven the same vehicle for more than 5 years so this would be totally new for me.

    We recently need to buy a new vehicle for my wife, and while we were talking about it, she said "well you know now you have to live with your truck for a while"....and I responded with...I know, but I LOVE my truck! This is the first vehicle I've ever had that happen. I have never looked at trying to get rid of it for something better. Do I wish I had a couple more small options? Of course, but it still suits my wants and needs to a tee. So much in fact, that after we bought her new Jeep, I looked more into my extended warranty, and decided that because I wanted to keep it so long, that I got a refund on my 6 year aftermarket warranty and purchased a Lifetime Maxcare warranty. I love my truck, and see NO reason to get rid of it anytime soon!

    I had a 2011 1500 Outdoorsman 4x4 5 speed, 3.92. Great vehicle. Good fuel economy for a truck. Awesome power. Looked amazing with the two tone grey on silver. Wish I never sold it, as it would've saved a lot of money...

    But... Just got into a 2016 Outdoorsman Hemi 4x4 8 speed 3.92 on Saturday! I'm going to miss the Jeep with the top off, and below 45 miles per hour, but we needed more space. Love the tech and trans so far over the 11. And I imagine mpgs will be at least comparable or better once I'm past initial break in and get a few Ks on it. Wish I could've found a full front bench; I was able to stretch my legs a bit more. Also getting used to the rotary shift as I grabbed the volume once lol.

    It's filthy atm, but the black forest green pearl coat is awesome too! It's like a chameleon, depending on the angle, from black to green. Will try to add a picture later.

    Overall I am very happy with my 2016 Ram. I got the Express 4x4 package, plus black edition package, and some other extras.. it essentially equates to a Big Horn if you break it down. Vehicle performance is amazing. No complaints whatsoever. The only thing I will say Ram could do better is better seats and up the basic features a bit. I am 6'4'' and have a hard time finding a comfortable driving position. I've owned the truck for 6 months now and I still am adjusting my seat and steering wheel at least once a week trying out different positions to see if i find someone more comfortable.

    My first Ram, and I am totally enjoying it. Moved over from Ford F150 and I am not looking back.

    Man I Love your truck ....5.7L , 8sp xsmn 4x4 with 392 differentials! This is a rare breed for sure ! Mainly 8 speed / 392 diffs.
    You could easily run 35" tires and get 19-20 mpg if you can keep your right foot out of it
    I have the 6speed and 355 differentials , it's not terrible but I'd sure like the 8sp/392s
    Envy is what I have !

    I have the 8speed / 3.92 and yeah, it's pretty nice. And I totally lucked into it. It was on the only truck that had all the other options I wanted and it hadnt even arrived to the dealer yet.

    If I ever trade in my truck it's gonna be for the 8 speed / 392 diff 4x4 - with the -45 Xsfer case , crew cab !

    IMHO that would be the absolute best truck on the market today hands down !

    I doubt i will though. ..

    I love my 14 Ram 4x4 6speed 5.7L 355 diffs with the -45 Xsfer Case !

    I came from an 06 f150 xlt 5.4 4x4 xcab. I put an edge tuner, headers, k&n 77 series intake and a full dual exhaust on it. It was pretty damn quick when i traded it in for my 2012 express 4x4 5.7 qc 6spd....
    I immediately felt the difference.
    Much quicker stock than the ford ever was.
    I put a ladder rack on it and used it for work. 112,000 miles later (absolutely problem free) I traded it in and got my 16 bighorn cc. 8 spd 5.7.
    I can honestly say that even though i have not a single bad thing to say about ford trucks...I WILL NEVER HAVE ANYTHING ELSE BUT A RAM!!
