Congrats on the new truck. I ordered one in the past and it sure seams like a long wait but worth it in the end.

RE: Rails vs pucks vs gooseneck mount

I had the 14 Ram with the puck system and Companion hitch. When i bought my 19 Ford F-250 I made sure it has the puck system. I’ve had rails and picks and the Puck with the B&W is hands down the best setup. Like others have said it eliminates the slack and on the Ram B&W I didn’t need a slide with my shortened because you set it behind the axle for more clearance.

RE: Ram Sales Increasing

I just bought a new Ford F-250 platinum but before that I owned a 2014 Ram MC drw that I loved. I was planning on buying a new 2019 Ram 2500 Longhorn since I had owned 3 rams before with very good service. I decided to test drive the 2019 F250 King Ranch and I really liked the seats as they were more comfortable to me. Pricing was within a $1000 and here in Texas truck country in May dealers were not offering much in discounts on either side. I decided on the Ford and have been happy so far after 5400 miles. Pros and cons on both and I am not brand loyal. We are very lucky to have three good trucks to choose from. I wish Ram all the best because I would defiantly buy another Ram diesel. I never looked at GM, they just don’t appeal me in looks and can size.

RE: From Ram to a Ford

First thing I noticed was the 2500 badges were set in the hood. I looked at some pictures of the new HD today and it was definitely one of them. You mean like this? This is a new 2019. Most likely what you saw??? I don’t think they are any changes to the 2020 vs the 2019. 2019 is the first year of the new design. Probably small changes only.

RE: From Ram to a Ford

Before this new F250, I have owned 3 Rams with Cummins. Never thought I would change but for me the comfort of the Ford platinum seats are what sold me. I live in Texas Hill Country where most people own trucks and a lot of Diesels. I have quiet a few friends with the new Ford 6.7 and they have been very pleased. I hope this truck holds up as well as my Rams did but time will tell. What trim level was your last RAM? I had the laramie on my 2014 Ram. I just could not get use to the seats on the 14 and the 19. The leather on the 2019 Ram I looked at was quality no doubt and a step above the 2014 Laramie. I didn’t have a problem with the leather it was the back sides that I just couldn’t get comfortable with. My 2007.5 Ram I had before was cloth and I liked the seats on that one. I can’t figure out the Apple play on my new ford though. When IPhone is plugged in I can’t get to my setting or FM radio. Any ideas?

RE: Switching tow vehicles

I just bought a new F250 and sold a 2014 Ram with the B&W ram hitch. I sold the B&W for over half what I paid for it and bought a 20k B&W to fit the F250 and very happy. I’m a big B&W fan of their 5th wheel hitches.

RE: From Ram to a Ford

On the cooled seats I can’t tell the difference between the Ram and the Ford. Funny thing is I had a hard time getting use to the Ford mirrors. The seat massage I thought was ridiculous when I first drove it but I went on a 600 mile trip right after I got the truck and I really enjoyed them on the long drives. It’s not vibration it’s a rolling or something on the back and bottom. My ram Aisan Tranny would have a clunking sound when shifting from drive to park sometimes. My brothers Ram did the same thing. Took it to dealer and let them listen to it and said it’s normal. Obviously the ride on the 3/4 ton is smoother then the DRW Ram so i didn’t mean for that to be a strike in the Ram. Truth be told if i had to buy a truck to tow my 5 wheel or other trailers it would be the same truck I sold. I was close to crying when they drove it away. I loved my Ram. Im not brand loyal so i drive the new 3/4 ton Ford and Ram and choose between them. Price was the same on both.

From Ram to a Ford

I posted a few weeks back about selling my 14 Ram MC DRW for a 3/4 ton Ram or Ford. I have since purchased a 2019 Ford 3/4 ton Platinum. Here are my opinions after 2300 miles in the Ford. Ford- - more comfortable seats and cabin. - smoother ride - tons of power and pretty fast - transmission shifts smoother then the Ram Aisan no clunking. - massage seats are awesome - much better sunroof. - very nice tailgate with step Ram - Cummins is a better pulling motor IMO, but it was a DRW compared to a SRW and there’s no comparison, as well as different gears and the Aisan was a very good towing trans. - better EB over the Ford - megacab has more storage space - better sound sound system - some features are better then the other and vise versa. - almost cried when they took my Ram. I am very happy with my new Ford. I just hope I get the same reliability as my last two Rams. I’m not brand loyal because these manufactures don’t care about me or what I think. I buy the truck that feels good to me when I test drive. That’s why I choose the Ford this time around. BTW all of these trucks are awesome but very expensive.

RE: Maybe a new Ford?

It was hard going away from Ram and especially the 2019. I have found a 2019 F250 Platinum that I just have to have. I haven’t finished the deal yet but I’ll sent info and pictures when i get them.

RE: Maybe a new Ford?

Thanks for the replies, I am fine with the F250 and not wanting the 350. I do love my Ram other then the rough ride and drivers seat. I wasn’t going to buy anything but the New Ram but I decided to look at the F250 and on the test drive It made me love the seats and the ride was comparable to the new Ram. Yes the massage feature is very nice as well. I debating buying another MC vs CC but the Ford CC is larger then the Rams CC. The Ram Longhorn is priced the same as the King Ranch. I do like the 12” screen on the Ram but I like the panoramic sunroof of the Ford so it’s a tossup but my comfort wins.

Maybe a new Ford?

I had posted a month or so ago about trading in my 14 Ram 3500 DRW MC for a new 2019 Ram 2500. After I have driven a few Longhorn package trucks I just think the seat are not very comfortable. I didn’t think my current Ram drivers seat is that comfortable either. The truck is amazingly beautiful and has the best interior of any of the three currently in my opinion. I test drove a new 2019 F250 King Ranch and I like it as well. Much more comfortable for me in the drivers seat. I may switch to the new Ford from owning my last three Rams. Those with the new Fords how do you like them? I don’t want the F350 just the 250 since I want the smoother ride and towing under 15k. I don’t want to start a Ram vs Ford war because I believe both are amazing trucks. Any suggestions?

RE: Are Idaho Ram dealers worth the drive?

Thanks for all the replies I believe I’ll wait a few months and see when the dealers have more stock. I’m needing a 2500 with the 5th wheel holes in the bed for my hitch. Not very many 3/4 tons with that option.

RE: Are Idaho Ram dealers worth the drive?

OP, no it isn't due to where you live. Being that Texas is the truck capital of the US, the truck market is very competitive in most metro areas. I got 14k off MSRP on my 2014 Ram at Bluebonnet in New Braunfels which is less than an hour from you. San Antonio itself is not that competitive, but Dallas and Houston are. Knowing exactly what you want and being firm on how much you are willing to pay for it goes a long way. Heck, when I bought my last F150, I emailed a salesman from all Ford dealerships in and around San Antonio exactly what I wanted and let them bid against each other. The prices between Jordan Ford and Bluebonnet Ford were neck and neck, but I ended up going with Jordan because of the color. Shiner, I have shopped at Bluebonnet before and I like the dealer. The dealer in Boerne I have not had good luck with. Without the factory incentives on 2019 2500’s out yet I may wait for a month or two. Thanks for the help.

Are Idaho Ram dealers worth the drive?

I’m looking at the new 2019 Ram 2500 longhorn trucks. I have seen were some have posted buying from a few dealers in Idaho. Dave Smith and Dennis something are two of the largest dealers in the country. I have heard you fly in and they pick you up and put you in a hotel at the dealers expense till your truck is ready?? Not sure if that is true or not? Being in Texas it would have to be an amazing savings for me to purchase and drive back. Has anyone done this and how much did you save off of MSRP? Thanks G

RE: Looking into purchasing a new 2019 Ram HD?

Unless there’s more reasons for a new truck, not sure how a 3500 srw is too much truck when the 2500 is the same except for the rear suspension. You could get a softer set of rear springs for like $600. Besides, a new 2500 will ride just as rough with the required rear tire pressure as a 3500 will with 40 psi in back Just say you want a new truck. First of all my truck is a 3500 MC DRW 4x4. Love the truck but just don’t need that big of a truck anymore. It’s hard to park and rides rough but all DRW trucks that can tow 30k pounds will ride rough. I’m just ready to start looking into a new Ram but a 2500 Cummins. Besides my CPA says I need to spend some money for my business.
