    What's up guys?
    I recently picked up a 2020 1500 Classic. It is my third Ram, but first with V6. Other two were Hemi's. I just needed a basic 4 door truck that I wasn't going to mod and was inexpensive. For under $20,000 brand new it fit the bill perfectly. Got about 1000 miles on it now and so far so good. Here is a little review I did soon after I picked it up.


    There is one minor issue though. I got a Compustar remote start system from Best Buy, but they said they don't make a T-harness for my truck and I don't want them hacking into my brand new truck harness. Can anyone possibly point me in the right direction or offer any advice? Worst case I'll just return the Compustar and wait until a T-harness is available.

    My previous trucks.

    I wonder if it would be possible to go the OEM route and just have activated by the dealer or see is Alpha OBD works on the 2020 classic yet.

    I went by the dealer and they said remote start/keyless entry is not a factory option. Since this is just a base truck it comes with a normal metal key, not the stubby plastic one like my old trucks. Maybe that is why?

    You've got some mad video skills! That was awesome!

    Crazy deal on that truck. A base model extended cab w/ automatic transmission would have been $20K 25+ years ago. I remember my early 1990s Dodge Dakota and Chevy 1500 being $13-14K in reg cab, shorty, 2wd, 5MT 6cyl flavor.

    I wonder what the chances would be for every average Joe getting this deal? I'm thinking pretty slim given not everyone is eligible for all the rebates and incentives. I've never even seen a base model on the lots near me.

    Thanks everyone!

    It definitely was a good deal I had to jump on. Trucks are so dang expensive these days and I didn't need anything fancy.

    I just checked their website and I guess the rebates have changed for August. Same exact truck is now listed at $23k after rebates.

    I'm just having fun playing around shooting and editing videos on my $60 phone. I've got a couple 4k cameras coming next week, so I can step it up a notch and try to grow my channel further.
