Default Wanna be Ram owner: decisions decisions...

Checking in from MI on this awesome and active forum.

Still trying to decide on the Ram for me. I drive about 25-30k/yr and also own a 29' Jayco TT weighing in dry at 5500lbs. I have the weight distribution hitch system also.

I pull about 5-6 trips per year and usually just locally meaning no more then 2-3hr trips but usually only an hour or less. I am blessed to live up north so plenty of camping spots nearby

I think I am liking the ecodiesel the more I read about its mileage but the lower rating gives me some concern.

Love watching this site for new owner experiences and feedback

Thanks everyone!

With 11,000 inland lakes & 4 of the 5 Great Lakes being close by, it must be hard to choose camping spots

Welcome to the forum!

Glad to see that you wound up on the Z. There are different sections of the forum set up specific to the generations if you need help in the future. It's also a great place to just hang around. General Discussions and I've heard of an "Off Topic" section.

Not to mention the vendors that can help with any modifications you might like to personalize your vehicle.

Take some time and brows the site, maybe even make a few friends!

Newbie how tos is always a good idea. It might help to familiarize yourself with how-to's on using the site and is a good reference tool for the future. One of the most underrated aspects is reputation. It's used to say thanks to a member that may have helped, or pointed you in the right direction.

The little scales of justice in the upper-left hand corner of their reply has it. Just click on it and add to their reputation.

Also try to remember posting if you have an issue with your Ram and solve it. That also helps other members solve their issues.

The drop-down menu above has a great search function to help with anything you're looking for. Just enter the key words.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VISIT FORUM HOW-TOS, to learn how to upload pictures to your gallery. Attachments are great, but once your allotment of attachments are full. They can't be deleted.


Enjoy the site!

My 2014 crew Laramie w/ Hemi and 3.92 gears just got 15.2 mpg average on a 220 mile round trip pulling my Trans Am ( some stop and go ). Felt like there was nothing behind it. It just turned 1,500 miles.
