    Good evening everyone. Just brought home what I hope will be a long lasting vehicle with many uses. It's a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500, quad cab, 8 foot bed, four wheel drive with the 5.7 Hemi.

    I was actually looking at 90s Jeep Cherokees when I found this. My requirements for the new vehicle were four wheel drive, full four doors, and no rust. It had to be spacious enough for the entire family to ride comfortably.

    I swore up and down for years, that I'd never own a "new" vehicle. I can't be happier with this one though. I just wanted to share my excitement.

            Yes. I live in Ohio, so I shop for cars in PA. They have inspections, we don't. You could literally drive the Flintstones car here. It came from New Jersey, only one previous owner. Not a speck of rust anywhere.

            Yep. I hate the look of a bed that's shorter than the cab.

            Nice truck! We have had several in our fleet over the years, you won’t be disappointed.
