My New Vehicle: 05 Dodge Ram Crew Cab!

Its no Mustang, but I like it, Fairly well loaded with 4.7L Magnum engine, didn't want a Hemi, makes your insurance higher, trying to keep that affordable. Its sort of like a Mineral grey color with cloth interior. What I like is it is like having a car and a truck in one package. I think I will sell my 95 Ranger and keep my mom's Lincoln Mark VIII. Its a 96 with about 80K miles on it. Still in very nice condition. Oh, has a 5 speed automatic transmission. That should help on fuel mileage on trips!

No, it belongs to geico, I haven't even got the truck home yet, I would have to get someone else to drive it home for me, I can't drive til like the middle of August! I am going to try to find the place where what is left of my stang is. They are going auction it off (Geico insurance). I want to see if any of my tools and cleaning stuff are still in her, also my house key is on the key ring. If I don't forget I will take the digital cam and try to get some pics of it and the new truck.

Did you have the performance parts insured? if not then I'd see about pulling as much of that off the car as you can. If I ever get into a non front end collision, the blower kit will be comming off!

Steve, your ram looks real similar, mine is a 1500 Crew Cab, sort of a mineral gray color. Upgrades? I had them add foglights as part of the deal, cost me like 310 dollars. It also came with steps and chrome bed rails already installed. Its a nice truck really. Will probably upgrade it to dual exhaust in future.

Foglights are like $160 on Ebay for the factory kit.

I've added wheel to wheel nerf bars, a tailgate protector and window tint/rear window graphic. I plan to add a chromed aluminum gas door, on order, and a Rhino liner. After that, I dunno maybe a blower so I can call it a Super Red Ram, which is what Dodge called their Hemi's in the 50's.
