Well, it looks like I will finally be joining the HD family! I've been a member on here since 2014 when I bought my used 2012 Ram 1500. I put a lot of time into that truck but the time came where I needed an HD. I sold my 1500 to a local buyer and have ordered my new 2024 Ram 2500 Big Horn! I ordered a Patriot Blue Night Edition and am beyond excited to get behind the wheel!

congrats! How long a wait will you have?
So, the dealer I ordered the truck through tells me 6 months. The two other dealers I was talking to about ordering told me 3-4 months. So, I’d say around March/April. Praying the interest rates fall a bit by then and they have even more incentives to take advantage of. We shall see!

Im right there with you. I just traded in my '20 1500 for my first 2500 w/ a 6.4L and 4.10 gears. I looked for awhile and tried for several Cummins engines, but I couldnt get them down low enough. Also, I was leery of the all the exhaust after-treatment nonsense.
Im spoiled with the Laramie and didnt want to step down in trim. This 2500 has 38k miles so she isnt brand new.
Ill be counting the days until I can refinance. Ive never missed a note in my life. I feel violated! Swindled! Bam-Boozled!

What are some accessories that you HD owners have purchased? I have seat covers ordered and want to get a console cover as well as vent shades. Let me know what you guys think I could use! :)

Aint that the truth! I got a picture of a '17, a signature of a '20, and posting pics of a '22... LMAO
I can tell stories of my '08 and '12... They feeling forgotten.

This is insignificant, but im pretty pumped the body line on the 2500s go straight back like the 4th gens. Im already deciding how wide I want the pin stripe like in my profile pic.

An oil catch can, 190 thermostat and grill shudder removal are my first purchases, since its a gas engine. Probably Redline 5w-30 or 40 with RP 20-820 for purchase #2.
Im debating on replaceing the muffler... My wife couldnt stand my Borla Pros XS on my '17. It had a drone right at cruising speed.
