My New Toy

Well Gang Esther and I have been looking to purchase a new Camper, while we haven't found a Camper yet We have learned that my Jeep probably wasn't going to Tow the Campers we're interested in,,, So I started looking around and searching the net for a Truck to replace my 2002 Jeep Liberty AND I'm happy to say We Got our New Truck this Morning..

It's a 2008 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 4x4 with the 5.7L Hemi, Auto Trans fully loaded with most of the bells and whistles and the Tow Package of course here's a pic.

Wish Us Luck everyone

NICE TRUCK. love that color and its got a HEMI

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Looks good Muzzy Decals ought to blend right in.

Way to go Bruce Diffenitely more power and from what you've said about Liberty probably no harder on gas. Good Move.

:-D Thanks for all thew kind words guys... GAS? my Jeep was a thirsty drive for sure
I'll let you know how much better the Hemi is after I fill'er up later on today but I can already tell it's a little better than the Jeep was.
Hard to believe isn't it? A Jeep 6 cyl. doesn't do as good as a Hemi 8.

The one Feature that sold me on this Dodge truck is the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty,
It includes the Engine, Transmission and all the 4wd components also.
Finally an Auto manufacturer that isn't afraid to stand behind their product for an entire lifetime.

Well as a truck driver, I'm glad you were able to do it right. Seen too many vehicles pulling loads too big for them push around in curves or unable to stop if needed. Always worries me when I see it.

Hey, your not gonna start doing those crazy commercials for them are you and try to stop on edge of cliff, drive across rails being blown by highpower fans?
