These dark colors are a real pain to keep clean but look so nice when they are. I wash mine a couple times a week because where I work there are barn swallows flying around all day and eventually one is going to target my nice clean black Ram, that stuff is nasty and will stain the paint fast. All they eat is bugs. Have a great day!

I just got back from the dealership - front shocks were squeaking so they replaced them. No complaints or arguments.
I could not love this truck anymore than I already do. Until the wife lets me lift it!
Purchased Jan 26, 12,670 miles so far. There just isn't a cooler truck on the road...or off it

A year and a half, 19000 miles and no problems. The best truck I've ever owned.

23 months, 37000 miles not one issue for my 12 Tradesman, except the damn headlights not being bright enough!

I do agree about the head lights not being bright enough. I don't think I could drive it safely at night if it were not for the fog/driving lights. If someone on here could come up with a REASONABLE priced solution to this problem I think they could make a lot of money JMHO.
BTW brighter bulbs don't last very long.

Had mine for 20 months and have 35,600 miles (57,000 km) on it. It has been the best truck I have ever owned. Only 2 trim issues fixed promptly under warranty - park brake release handle broke and drivers tow mirror glass came loose. I try to keep it very clean too but its a big vehicle and takes a long time to detail.

1 1/2 years -- 25,000 miles. Style and general terrific looks +, Hemi +, Mechanical +, Average 18 mpg +, Driving comfort +, General utility +, Body panel alignment and wave free sheet metal +, Only two minor warranty issues other than paint +, Paint numerous dirt/dust nibs but no runs or thin paint - .

Just the facts as I see them. FWIW...this is my third Ram with a Hemi.

Well, we are about 18 months and 18K miles into our 2012 Bighorn Crew 1500 with Hemi and 3.92 gear with posi rear end.

No trouble at all except constant approach of strangers who want to talk about my truck. I enjoy it every time I get in it to go somewhere and can't imagine trading it any time soon. In fact, as long as it holds up well, I suppose I will keep it for 10 to 15 more years and trade it right about retirement time for my last truck.
