I think your truck was garaged and for sure not driven in the winter, it being a CT truck do they use the dreaded Mag chloride along W rock salt like my state of NY, I wonder if a older dude owned it and really cared for it like allot of us here do.
You stole that truck, your boys look at home in it, I know the one is a pedigree German shepherd, the other a Lab ridgeback mix?

so I'm sitting here trying to research my trucks towing capacity and I'm getting a lot of conflicting information. My particular model is the Laramie quad cab 5.7 hemi 8 foot bed. can this truck haul a trailer with a jeep for off-roading? i really hope so as that's the reason i sold my Tundra for this... I would've figured with a 5.7 L hemi in the long wheelbase that this truck could at least haul 10,000 pounds.

I don’t have the energy to keep up with a Belgian shepherd anymore.

ahh my baby girl is so chill ... she's just a love bug who likes snuggling up to her dad and playing with her big brother... doesn't act like a typical Mali (thank god ) cus THEN she would be tough to handle haha... Daisy does have strong prey drive tho but like i said she's more interested in snuggling haha

Welcome from Canada.
I had a 2005 ,2 wd, about the same , I had no problem and really liked it, I was at the dealer for a oil change or something and a fellow just traded in a as new 2010 black Laramie loaded 4x4, so I traded . Driving a '14 sport loaded now.
I have never had any problems with any of them. they live in the garage and get washed often.

Welcome to the forum and nice truck. Like you I'm a first time Ram owner and have always been a Toyota guy. I've found this is a good place to get some education.
