Default Excited but scared for my new '13

Ive finally pulled the trigger and am having my new Big Horn delivered to my house in 2 weeks. I fell in love with the interior and compared to my '07 1500 ST reg cab this truck is a dream. The only problem is that I am starting to wonder if I am doomed from the start after reading all these posts. I understand that every vehicle is going to have SOME type of issue, they are human made and not perfect. But should I really be worried? This truck was my coming home gift to myself from my second tour. Someone please make me feel like I made the right decision

Honestly, don't worry about it. What you have to remember is that 90% of people that have an issue will post about it but 90% of people that are happy and don't have an issue won't post anything. So yes lots of people are posting about their problems, but there are WAY more people that don't have any problems whatsoever. Your truck will most likely be 100% fine. If there is a problem it will be covered under warranty. Don't worry, you made the right decision and you're gonna love the truck Congrats!!

It might make you feel better if you just stop reading the forum! Generally forums are more for people with problems. People come to the forum for answers. Every forum is filled with complaints and issues. Dosen't matter if it's a camry forum or viper forum.

My 13 Big Horn has been completely problem free, as are nearly all new Rams. Don't worry, just enjoy the truck!

Congrats man! You won't regret it! These new trucks are awesome! Just take all of this with a grain of salt. There are some great people on this forum who will offer any help they can, day or night!

Don't forget they are building a 1000 plus trucks per day, six days per week. The odds of having problems as described on this or any forum are pretty slim, IMHO. Enjoy your new truck!
