I'm one of the two people that voted for the 1st gen. Ok, so maybe I'm partial to 'em 'cause I own one. But since owning it, I realize I really like the older Rams. I think their simple design can be beautiful. I have always preferred older vehicles versus new. Don't get me wrong, there are loads of new cars/trucks I wish I could own. But my faves are old school muscle cars. And I would really love to own a Ramcharger. Out in Cali, I saw alot of them, in perfect condition. That's where I picked my baby up.

don't get me wrong, i like the 3rd gens but the 2nd gen is the first gen of rams to look like semis. plus dodge made them for 9 yrs (8 yrs for 1500). i think they will always be a great looking truck just because they are original

I have to say, I have had (2) two Gen 2 Rams 95 & 2001 and now a 3rd generation ram, I voted the 3rd generation cause I love it but it took some time to grow on me like some other's have said cause I had bought my 2001 two months before the 3rd generation ram came out and was kinda mad at myself cause I didnt wait so had to convince myself I made the right decision. I would probably still be driving the 2001 Quad 2 wheel drive if I hadnt taken it in for Transmission work on 3 diffrent occasions for a winy noise and had 35,000 miles which meant out of warranty next time I took it in.

I went with 1st Gen. Only because I like vintage trucks. Actually my favorite Dodge pickups are the Sweptline models built from 61-71.

My thinking also! Would love to get the truck my Dad had, 1967 D-100 Adventurer with the shifter in the dash! Used to ride in the middle and knock it into Neutral with my knees all the time! Great Memories of that time! ;)
My other trucks I've owned,
1990 D-150 SWB 4x2 "White Knight"
1999 1500 SWB 4x4 "Black Beauty"
2002 1500 LWB 4x2 "Gray Mare"

2nd Gen.
Better built.
Stronger built.
Better aerodynamics.
Stronger axles.
Better looking.

Just shows how much power the stylists have when Dodge will market a vehicle with a worse drag factor than previous model. 2nd Gen over 3rd.

I voted third gen but lets not forget that it took the 1st and 2nd gens to get the engineers to the 3rd. :rck: They all rock in one way or another.

I have always liked the looks of the first gen, but they are a little...generic. The interior's my favorite of all of them though.

The 2nd gen is simply a legend. It defines tough truck styling even, in large part, today. I instantly liked them and still do.

3rd gen...they're OK, but have never grabbed me. Has a sort of UFO-ish feel inside and out. Best thing it has going for it is that Hemi powertrain, although it seems to me that it'd be better suited to cars.

So I say 2nd, by the narrowest of margins over the 1st.

Now if I had my choice, as others have said above, I'd be going much older than any of these.
