Hey guys,

I've been a lurker for a bit while I shopped, but am now a part of the Ram Truck family.

I started out looking at the Black Ram Express, but didn't want to pay the price on a 2014. So I actually ended up with probably one of the last NEW 2012 Tradesman HD trucks. The deal was too good to pass up, and I love how overbuilt the truck is. It's still plain, but I'm working out what mods I want to do. (Audio, Wheels, Spray-in bedliner, step bars are on the agenda so far) It doesn't appear too many people bought this model, as evidence by it being discontinued, but I do like the options it came with. (4.10 rear, leaf spring suspension, etc)

I look forward to picking y'alls minds as I try to take this truck from plain work truck to something not so plain.

Delayed much in response? Yes, yes I am!

Thanks for the welcome!

It seems not too many people knew about the 1500 HD in general, considering they only offered it in 2012. The truck is essentially a 2500 with the 1500 front end. Only came as a regular cab with a long bed. I think the regular price was just a bit too high for the market they went after, but it's certainly more truck than my previous GMC 1500 Regular Cab. I have a thing for Work Trucks, what can I say?
