I saw plenty of them on dealer lots as I drove from Chicago to Arkansas and back last weekend, still don't like them. tsk I will be keeping my 2015 for life now and if it breaks or gets wrecked I will buy a nice used one. Tried taking my 85 crew cab dually on the trip but it broke 3 miles after leaving... eyes

That and update the roller lifters that stop rolling and valve springs that like to break.

I still can't get over how high up the bed sides are getting, I am going to get altitude sickness climing up there to put stuff in the bed. My flat bed car trailer would completly disapear behind my 2011 and this new monstrousity is even worse.

First one arrived at our dealer. Stopped for a look. Ouch! Laramie model. Didn't have air suspension or Ram box. Imagine the price of a loaded model!

Around here, Ram pickups are a huge seller. Not sure that trend will continue. My buddy stopped for a look and his 15 year old daughter says "it looks like a Toyota".
Sad but true.

Also on the lot were two Pacifica vans. Which in my opinion look pretty good for a van, yet don't sell at all here. The only one on the road here is the dealers customer service vehicle. I don't think our dealer has sold even one since they came out, what, almost 2 years ago now?

Crazy, I just built a 4X4 Limited on Ram.com with every option available and it came to $67,500. How are they getting to $80K?

I don't know how they got to $80k. I just built one online and after checking all the boxes on a 2019 1500 Laramie limited I only got to an MSRP of $64,175.
