After 8 very long weeks took delivery yesterday on my first Ram (2nd Dodge):
05 QC 2wd SLT, 4.7 w/the 6-spd manual.
Bright Silver Metallic with leather slate gray interior.
Stock 265/70/17 tires and chrome clad wheels.
3.92 ratio. 4-wheel ABS. Chrome bug deflector.

No pics, because I'm sure you guys have seen many like it.

But to me, just beautiful!! And I'm damned thrilled to have it.

I think I might be catching the Mod Flu...

Congrats on your truck! I know after looking for several months that I was ready to get my hands on it! Welcome aboard!

Thanks for the warm welcome. No pics yet, but will post later.

Byrdawg13 - got to agree with Andy, Stick shifts do rule. Low friction point engages immediately, great control, very smooth shifts, relatively quick off the line and great mid-range acceleration (even though its not a Hemi). Pretty much everything I've asked for. We'll see how durable it is over the long term. I do have some peace of mind with the 7/70 if issues do arise. My other truck is a 00 Dakota with the 5-spd and I've got to say that I'm liking this 6-spd better so far (150 miles).

Mods to come: Line-X, tonneau cover (not sure which one yet), will probably drop the rear to level out(Slammed1. I know.), nerf bars, CAI & exhaust possibly (jury's still out on these performance mods).

Freelantz- Aspen was my 85 lb Samoyed. Come to think of it we did have a '78 Aspen R/T, black with orange racing stripe and rear spoiler. Got to drive it in high school.
