Default Claff's 2014 Laramie crew cab

I have no idea how exciting this thread will be, but I'll try and keep it updated as we begin our life with our new truck and hopefully grow old together.

Figured I'd start with what we came out of. We have been using a 2011 4Runner as a tow vehicle for the last three years. It's treated us very well all this time, but we've outgrown it as we take our racing a little more seriously.



A couple weeks ago we decided we'd move into a big boy truck, and settled on Ram. We struck a deal and the 4Runner (now looking pretty boring with all the decals and stripes removed) was traded in.



So here we are, proud parents of a 2014 Laramie crew cab with the Hemi, 8-spd auto, and a buttload of features I'm only beginning to comprehend. I think it's going to be a fun ride.

All I can say I about the trade is and about the purchase of the Ram

Time for updates

First thing we bought our truck were Weathertech FloorLiner front floor mats. I wasn't sure if I'd like them since they don't use the dual anchor points that the factory mats use, but I have no beef with them.


The other upgrade right out of the box was the dealer-installed spray-in bedliner. Why trucks don't come with these installed standard across the board is a mystery to me.


Our big bad truck wears cute little "PUGGED" license plates. We have four pugs and volunteer for a pug rescue operation, and, theoretically, the truck is going to be the dog-hauler although we haven't invited them into it just yet.


It was only a week after we bought the truck when we got the first "hey I need something hauled!" phone call. A friend is renovating his house and for some reason couldn't fit a load of drywall into his Camry. Imagine that.


Next stop was SSC Tint & Graphics in Elizabethtown, PA where our buddy Mike tinted the front door windows.


The wife took this picture of me trying to visualize the installation of our Westin Pro Traxx side steps, suggesting I bring them to a shop to let them do the work. Let a shop do something I can do myself? Preposterous!


Success!


Big truck towers over the rest of the fleet


Decent looking truck


Last upgrade to show off is the Leer 700 bed cover, painted to match. Now the truck is pretty much set up the way we want it, so I washed it, waxed it, and brought it to the park for its glamour shots. Late-afternoon sun played havoc with my meager photography skills, but it did do a good job of making all that chrome really pop.




News flash: Ram is roughly twice as big as a Toyota Yaris


We'll check back in in another month or so!
