    I wish the Gen 4's had the panoramic sunroofs like Zac's.

    I believe the Delmonico Red Pearl paint color is GBY. The lower color on my Ram is Walnut Canyon Brown Mettallic.

    Zac, did you get an owners manual (about 500 pages) or that little users guide?

    It was silver. Just too light for me.

    The red/maroon was my second color choice besides the black lol. I like it lol.

    There was a blue Laramie down around Orlando I was half heartedly considering. It was a Laramie, but didn’t have all the options. It did look damn good though!

    My have to haves were-
    4x4
    Heated/vented leather seats
    The big 12” radio
    Center console
    And crew cab

    I’ve got it up a good bit so far. I’ve already put almost 600 miles on it this week! LOL I got it at 98 miles, and getting 11mpg. Now it’s at 680 miles up to 17.5 mpg’s.

    I think there was a little user guide in the glovebox. I’ll have to double check. I got the email for the big user guide yesterday, but haven’t had a chance to look it over yet.

    I need to figure out how to input our gate code into the remote in the sun visor. The sales guy wasn’t even sure lol

    Zac, call Ram customer care at 866-932-3878 and request a paper copy of the Owner's Manual. They will mail you one for free. They will ask for your VIN Number.

    I liked the silver but at some point I'm glad I didn't as I now wouldn't want one.
    My must have were
    4or
    8 ft bed
    Sunroof
    8.4N radio
    CD player
    Rear defogger

    I passed on plenty of trucks, even used truck but not many with my demands.

    You are gonna get so used to that comfy ride.

    Yea, the silver is just kinda “meh” to me. I’d like the dark metallic gray, like what is on our 03, but I don’t think that is an option. Or I didn’t see one.

    I don’t think they offer an 8’ bed in the half tons anymore. The “standard” cab now is silly. Still a small 4 door, atleast in the half tons.

    I would have loved a Cummins 2500 with the long bed, but I just could not swing the $$. I could have got a tradesman 2500, but I wouldn’t have been happy without all the options I wanted.

    There were a couple used 2500’s in the ballpark. But they were not the new 5th gens. I wanted new lol.

    It’s been an epic roller coaster this last month or so. Green truck keeps asking for $$, and after throwing $$ at it, it’s still not happy. She blew a head gasket again, but wiped out the motor this time...

    The car has just been posing in the garage the last 2 years or so. I’m tired of constantly fixing stuff. Time for new.... Green truck still needs fixing. May keep it for a toy, or may sell it afterwards. Not sure yet.

    That's not lane assist......

    Lane assist will keep you in your lane. There is steering wheel resistance that keeps in your lane. You can overpower it with some effort or if you use your turn signal it will stop temporarily. Only works over 30 mph and has to have lines painted on the road. You can adjust to different levels of steering wheel resistance.

    Marron is a great color but I personally love blue especially with chrome bumpers on a newer Ram

    I understand the 4x4, the radio, the console and the cab. May I ask why heated seats? You're in Florida, it's hot as hell there

    You’d be surprised how cold it gets here during the winter months. Granted it doesn’t go near as long. Just a few days here and there. Enough to warrant it. Plus I can’t get the vented seats without the heated..

    My folks always used to give me crap about the temps, until they came down last year. I kept asking why they were wearing their coats? I thought it doesn’t get cold here? I just got the “shut up”. Ha!

    Mopar is crazy on their tonneau covers! They want $2k for one! Jesus. Aftermarket it will be.

    I do want the factory mud flaps, but of coarse they are on back order, with no expected delivery date.. sigh.

    The borla attak cat back exhaust system looks pretty nice! Idk though, it’s pretty nice how quiet it is too... hmmm...

    Another reason I'm down to one. I'm tired of the maintenance and repairs.
