    What did you own before your current RAM?
    Are you a serial RAM owner? Switching from another truck brand? Just getting into the truck life?

    This is my 3rd truck. I keep going bigger each time...
    Started with an '86 Isuzu P'up. Technically a pickup, but just barely....
    Bought a brand-new 2000 Dodge Dakota.
    Kept that until I got my slightly used 2017 RAM this year.

    Definitely a Dodge/RAM/FCA fan.

    2006 Chevy Silverado Duramax - now have a 6.4 Hemi. Overall, my Ram has been a pretty good truck but I do miss the growl and pulling of the diesel at times.

    1993 Mazda MX-3
    1991 Honda Prelude EX (first decent car)
    1985 Ford Escort Pony (what a POS)
    1982 Subaru GL (hand me down)

    I was a “sporty car” guy for many years until my kids got to driving age and my wife had to be able to drive my vehicle and couldn’t drive a stick so had to switch over to more family oriented vehicles. Just recently got into pickups within the past few years.
