    I bought a new 392 2500 last Monday.

    Yep, it's got the hated chrome grill, no carpet, and vinyl seats......and I love it. I stumbled across it by accident and it's almost exactly like I would have ordered it. The 392 and the 8 speed seem to be made for each other. Drives great in town and on the highway.

    I know looks are subjective, but I like it much better than the 7 Gen IV trucks I've owned.

    For a base truck it is VERY quiet. I beiieve it is as quiet as the 2016 Laramie dually I had.

    Someone mentioned in another thread, they saw one in a gas station and it was very short. I cannot speak to that one, but the floor height on this one is as tall as the 2016 Power Wagon I owned. I'm 6'8" tall and this one is a bit of a struggle to get intlo. It is definitely tall than the 2500 Bighorn I owned.

    While this truck might not be for everyone, it really pleases me.

    I hope some of you get a chance to drive one a form your own opinions.

    I can’t tell a whole lot of difference between this gen 5 and my gen 4 as far as the interior goes. Maybe the radio bezel
