  1. Post Pics of Your 2014+

    The black one looks great. Both are nice trucks.
  2. The chrome front looks good. I went the other direction and had body coloured bumpers/grill. I'd be interested to see how the chrome held up vs the paint in terms of rock chips. Beautiful looking truck.
  3. Am I Insane?

    Good luck! Take some pics and let us know how you make out!
  4. Sierra Exhaust Sound

    Yes! I like the look of the Rams version because it actually looks like it was meant to be there. The random hangers under the bumper? Does not do it for me at all. Not to mention 99% of the ones I see, one tip is lower or higher than the other. That drives me bananas.
  5. Sierra Exhaust Sound

    Am I crazy? I do not like the dual straight out the back under the bumper exhausts AT ALL. I do like the look of dual exhausts that mimic the factory exhaust position on both sides of the truck. I just find the straight out the back under the bumper looks outta place...

    Getting ready to move a tractor...
  7. For what it is worth... I looked long and hard at all the options in front of me when purchasing my 2017 Silverado Dbl Cab. I commute about an hour each way to work, 88kms. Although I like the styling of the Ram, we utilize their products in our Ambulance fleet and dealing with FCA is painful and has been a very expensive endeavor. This, unfortunately knocked their line of pickups out of the running for me based on my experience. I do know a lot of people who have had good luck with them and love their products. The Ecodiesel was appealing because of the mileage. I was also pretty set on a Tundra from the beginning of my search. Despite what other people have had to say about them, I found them to be a nice looking, sturdy and strong feeling pickup. The fuel consumption was on the wrong side of the spectrum. I'm not sure why they have not updated their powertrain yet... The new Tacoma was my next up, but it was just as expensive as the full size truck, less capable for what I needed and the fuel mileage was approximately what I ended up with in the Silverado. At the time, the F150s were on my radar and I had test drove an EB and really enjoyed the feeling behind the wheel. I also drove a buddies 5.0 for awhile and it also felt really nice and drove great. The pricing on the Fords was just nowhere near being able to touch the GM products. The only thing I would probably have done differently if I was doing it over again, is really take a hard look at the Colorado/Canyon Diesel. I did not look at the new Ridgeline, because it was just as expensive as a full size pickup here and it just wasn't worth it to me. Now, after all was said and done.. I ended up in my search, taking my current truck for a test drive. It may not sound as great from the lot as the exhaust notes on some competitors and it may have a little bit of lag when you mash the pedal. All these are things that you can fix to your liking with modifications. I have not, perhaps it's because I've always ever owned GM products and I'm use to it. GM has also always treated me very well in the event that any warranty work was to be done to any of my vehicles. I really can't complain about too much. I've had my truck for just over a year, 33, 000kms, and I don't regret my purchase one bit. Make sure you explore all your options and make a decision you're comfortable with :). If you decide to go with the Silverado, the things I wish I had got them to toss in from the dealership would have been a leveling kit and the 275/70/18 BFG tires or the 20'' chrome wheels with the BFG tires. I intentionally opted not to get a tonneau cover and side steps from the dealer because they are incredibly expensive and I was able to purchase take offs for little to nothing ($120 for tonneau, $100 for side steps). Good luck with your decision!
  8. 2019 Ram thoughts

    I like the look of the exterior and interior. I don't feel like I'd put it ahead of the 2018's in my books yet, maybe when I see more of them around. If I was to be looking at trading, I'd be waiting to see what the specs on the new ranger are going to be.
  9. Do we have any pictures of it? I am looking at possibly doing this with a set thats for sale around here. Would the centre caps be easily changeable to Chev ones?
  10. I would be beyond tit flipping mad. The wife knows every time I take it for service, she has to be on standby for the bail out call should something go wrong. I'm joking... maybe.
  11. *color, sorry eh. I see a lot of black trucks with the factory blacked out rims, red trucks with the blacked out rims and white trucks with the blacked out rims. They also come with the colour (color) matched bumper, grills, etc. How come the Deep Ocean Blue Metallic doesn't come in that configuration? Does it and I just never noticed?
  12. Best miles per gallon?

    26mpg - 2 hour trip.
  13. Tire/Level Suggestions?

    Go out and get your truck coated with the Xpel paint protection film. The paint is something else. :/
  14. Best Undercoating?

    Krown, everyone out here in Atlantic Canada has that as their go-to.
  15. Centre Caps

    Right? It doesn't look like he has any modifications done to his truck but the tires are 285/45/22. Shouldn't be an issue on stock?
