Here's my question, why would they stuff the gps/sirius antenna right between the marker lights instead of centering it on the back of the cab? Looks silly where its placed....or is that some form of testing equipment?

Wish they would extend the option of the same headlights to the Bighorn/Laramie trim levels that are being used on the Longhorn/Limited trims. I think the thinner headlight area looks nice. I looked over the 2019 1500 truck build and the thinner headlight assemblies are not an option in Laramie and below trims.

I'm excited about the prospect of getting blind spot warning that's coming with the 2019 trucks as well.

Looking to buy a Ram between Jan and March. This is going to get interesting as it's speculated, and probably true, the 2019 HD's will become official in January 2019. Some say ordered trucks could ship in March 2019 to some degree. Nothing wrong with the current HD looks, so maybe we will find a deal out there.


Have fun with that brand new body style RAM.
My truck was one of the very first shipments of HD RAM's back in 2002. I had people nearly running off the road trying to look at it. One day I was parked at my folks house and a couple of guys in an old VW van stopped in front of the house. They jumped out and ran towards my truck. I see this from inside the house so I take off running too.
Turns out they just wanted to see my truck as they had never seen one.
Then I showed up at a dyno event where a FOrd dealer had brought a new 6.0. We had our trucks nose to nose so people could compare.
His truck didn't compare too well and after the dyno run he just left so he didn't have to answer any questions.

Probably if you put a camper in the back it would render them useless with the camper overhang over the cab.

From the front it looks very similar to a 2006 F350.

Because it's a truck made to work..things go in the bed that can block the antenna [emoticon]

Yeah the refreshed 4th gen front clip looks pretty decent IMO. Plus they got rid of the RAM on the tailgate which is nice.
Best part about that new clip/bumper is look at the air dam. You can remove it without looking like you're missing part of the truck! Big win there.

Actually the front bumper looks very similar to my current Super Duty along with those front suspension swing arms. [emoticon]

We now know the cummins will have a compacted graphite iron block and I'll make a prediction that the new ZF 8 speed transmission will replace the 68.
