The whale part two

Going to pick up my new workster tomorrow. Same as my 12. The original whale goes into the fleet with around 140,000 mostly trouble free miles. My salesperson sent me pics while it was getting a bath.

That's a great price especially for the Cummins!

I do a lot of work for this dealer. They have 39 dealerships selling just about every brand excluding Ford.

Great truck. They'll pull down a house. The more you tug the madder they get. I was a GMC guy forever then in 12 Ram got truck of the year. I got to haul with BJBs Lariat and it didn't break like his Ford did. I bought one in early 13.
Although my 06 GMC is still in the fleet and driven every day with over 300,000 on the clock!

Yep, and they look like they'll pull down a house too. I always liked their demeanor. Had a couple of Suburbans and a Silverado. All nice, but I'm a Mopar-head at heart. Had a Tradesman 200 van, and that little 318 just wouldn't die. One thing I've noticed with every GM truck I've owned or driven. The brakes seem weak. You gotta stand on them more so than any other vehicle I can recall. But the a/c's sure blow cold.

You are correct regarding brakes and AC. The only gripe I have with the ram is I wore out the cloth on the drivers side seat getting in and out. Other than that I had some rear end work done under warranty and the egr just took a shit the other day. 700+$ part.
And, if you buy the stretch limo model like me, rotate the tires every 5000 miles
