Is this where I get to brag about my two new purchases? I've been hesitant to do it on the main board because I didn't want to seem like a dick.

So this isn't a joke.. even though it seems crazy...

But I just traded in my F150 and Jeep for one of these a week ago... looks exactly like the picture.

2019 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn

Image



And a couple weeks ago I ordered on of these. It'll be Spectral British Racing Green with the blackout package and just about every option possible. Since they don't "come that way" it's being custom built at the Ranger Rover plant in Solihull England. Production is slated to start in April and the estimated arrival at the dealer is August. I can't fucking wait.

2019 Supercharged Range Rover

Image




I know it seems crazy.. who needs both right? The truck will be my winter/nasty weather driver. That Range Rover will be treated better than most people's children.

Wow.
Real talk.. with what happened with my Dad.. 6 months ago he wasn't sick. I don't know where I'll be 6 months from now. It scares me.

What he's done for me.. he's set me up for life.. and I'm lucky enough that these purchases really don't make much of an impact. So I figure.. this is my only chance to ever do something like that... and the Range Rover has a deep meaning between me and dad.
Spoiler:
For those interested, my dad was a pilot and he always loved England. After my parents divorced he'd fly to England at least once a month. He'd always bring me back little British car toys, my favorites of which were Land Rovers. And his favorite color was always British Racing Green.
So I said fuck it.. why not.

I don't care what anyone says, I love that paint! Sick rims and calipers too. If I could realistically buy a car it would be something like this.

Since we're just posting stock images, here's mine

I'll probably still post some actual pics tonight. I gotta hit up a self serve car wash tonight because snow got into the wheels and it's out of balance because of it

Remind me again how to post an actual pic and not something from the web? I'll post my Avalanche after I get it washed tomorrow. Poor girl is full of salt and stuff.

Question.. where do you usually get your truck washed? I'm cautious of the places that use the strips that slap against your car. I can just imagine all the rocks stuck in there making microscopic scratches on my paint. But I'm also afraid I might be too "big" for the stationary washes where it moves around you with the sprayers.

Serious question(s):
How many miles have you put on the Ram so far? Does it have the eTorque system? I was thinking about switching to Ram but have been hearing that the '19s are getting horrible fuel mileage, what have you been averaging on the highway?

I use those coin-op, self serve joints out of necessity. My car has low profile tires, so I can't use the spots with the tracks because it will fuck up my wheels.

Right underneath the "submit" button on the full "post a reply" screen, there's a place where you can add attachments.

Froman seems to be good with a 1998-esque size limit on the attachments though, so it may take some playing with the file.

A combo of gas station places, the local self-washing place in town, and a pressure washer in my driveway (if I get the damn thing fixed). I NEVER use the brushes if it gives me an option. Your Dodge is normal sized, correct? As long as you turn the mirrors in, you shouldn't have any issues. I turn mine in, and wouldn't have to on most of those carwashes.

I have about 250-300 miles so far, I just bought it a week and a half ago. I honestly have no idea if it has the eTorque system.. I don't ever remember it being mentioned. I will admit that I've been surprised about how bad the gas mileage has been. Most of my commute is highway miles and it says I'm averaging about 13.5 miles a gallon. I just had the tonneau cover put on two days ago and I don't think the weather this week is conducive to a good average number so I'm hoping it gets at least a little better. I thought the papers said it was 21 hwy 16 city but that's obviously bullshit.

Gas mileage aside I really love the truck. It's beautiful.

It's a crew cab with a short bed. It's definitely long. The closest self wash that I know of is 15 mins away.. and not keen on that option in winter.

The best I've ever gotten on highway with a truck is 18, and that was driving to Florida. If I get a full tank of true highway miles, I'm typically around 16. Granted, mine is a 2012. And, I've monkeyed with which fuel I put in, as well.

I'm going to be lucky to get 10-11 this week, I've been letting it idle so much.

I think that's also a big factor.. since I've got the truck I'm constantly letting it warm up so I doubt I'm getting a true reading.

Plus, if it's brand new, that might affect it, too. I've never owned brand new, but I've heard they take a bit of breaking in to really loosen them up. I'm sure someone more mechanically inclined can verify that.

Yep.. I'd think you're correct. Guessing I have at least another couple hundred miles before it's anywhere near broken in.

Sort of, yeah. It's not nearly as big of a deal now as it was 15 years ago.

The biggest thing is to get your first oil change at about 1500 miles and not get your tachometer up near the rev limiter until you get to 500 or 1000 miles.

Plus, if it's brand new, that might affect it, too. I've never owned brand new, but I've heard they take a bit of breaking in to really loosen them up. I'm sure someone more mechanically inclined can verify that.
Sort of, yeah. It's not nearly as big of a deal now as it was 15 years ago.

The biggest thing is to get your first oil change at about 1500 miles and not get your tachometer up near the rev limiter until you get to 500 or 1000 miles.
Damn.. guessing those burnouts weren't a good idea.... :beer:
I guarantee that I was rougher on my clutch than the book recommends during my break in period.

30,000 miles and it's still going strong though.

I think that's also a big factor.. since I've got the truck I'm constantly letting it warm up so I doubt I'm getting a true reading.

I have a hard time getting used to the fact that we don’t have to change the oil in the Mazda until 6k.
Fuck Rudy Luther and Susan.
