I've looked at RAM trucks, but their reputation finally turned me off.
My 2013 RAM 1500
with 5.7 hemi and 3.55 rear has performed flawlessly since I bought it new. No issues whatsoever. Just normal maintenance. Time will tell if it proves to be a long lasting vehicle. My other vehicles are BMW and Toyota so I'm not blindly loyal to any one brand.
It has plenty of towing power for the mountains here in the east. However, it is light in payload area and am hoping FCA improves that issue in the next generation.
