    Recently traded in the 2wd 09 Laramie I have been driving for the last decade.... 140k on the odometer, for a new 2017 Tradesman 4x4 w/ dealer installed Pro Comp 6" lift & wheels. Had a lifetime powertrain warranty on the prior & got the same on this one after a week of holding out & passing on good offers. Also negotiated having factory remote start added as that was a feature I would have missed from the Laramie. Got a great deal, my 09 + 25K out the door.

    Fricken love everything about this Tradesman, no carpet FTW. Also a fan of the vinyl seats... couldn't tell a difference from the leather in my Laramie & I'm thinking they will wear a hell of a lot better. Finding out about the transfer case benefit of the Tradesman over the higher trims was a nice plus as well. Found this forum while researching what I was missing in not having the 4wd auto option.... never have I been happier about missing out on an "upgrade", lol. No mods planned other than the 6 inch Diode Dynamics LED fog light kit (mount wear tow hooks should be) & their SL1 hi & low beam LED upgrade bulbs that I already have on order. Might do a Flowmaster catback as well. LOVE the 8spd, very noticeable improvement.

    Enjoying my time on this forum, impressive community of contributors.... haven't run across any dipshittery which says much given most forums these days.
