I am normally NOT a fan of what I call Primer Grey vehicles, though they are certainly easy to touch up if the paint gets chipped 😬, but this one is an exception, For some reason I quite like this “Anvil Grey”:

650 foot pounds…… It is not quite new, it has 175 miles of “Let’s see if we can smoke all four tires.” test drives. I am surprised that there is any tread left. Can somebody let me have $100,000 please? I can swing the balance. I don’t really like the roll bar/ light bar, that would have to come off. Definitely.

I like everything about it, including the color. Except the price tag.

Thanks for the share.

That dealer has ANOTHER one, for the same price, in white, it doesn’t look nearly as good IMHO, I like the contrasting bead lock wheels of the other one.

I actually like the grey, better. Personal preference. 

Hate the price tag though. That will never land in my garage. At least, not new.

Really a nice front end on that truck.

Is that price for real?

LOL, no. That was one of the reasons I posted.

But I really love the look, especially the stance. Very like the Raptor, but also it is not a Ford, a plus for me😀 and it has a great big supercharged V8, no turbos….

Wow, $130K.  I got a truck and an Oliver for a little less. I do like the grey. But as its a Dodge - a Chrysler, a Ram - well I'll pass.

Ha. We love our Ram. Then again, I  love my old Silverado, too. And, I loved my Ford.  

Honestly,  I  think its hard to find a "bad" truck these days. Harder to find the best, for you. 

But, like I  said before, a truck at that price tag has no space in my garage. YIKES!

Yes - most all are really good Trucks now a days. As for the Ram - I was just picking a fight - I actually have warmed up to the new look. 

as for the rest - its all about the same really.

My father in law  - once a staunch Ford man, and decidedly anti "Dodge "has purchased two Ram's in the last few years. I poke him about it regularly - Although I think they are nice trucks, it is fun to rib him. 🥰
