I sold my Jeep Rubicon and bought a Ram 1500. I sincerely miss my Jeep, but I wasn't doing enough hard core off-roading to justify the Rubicon price tag so I sold it and bought a Ram 1500. The Ram seemed a bit more practical for camping trips since we always take people and their gear with us. I will say that this truck's handling, braking, power, and interior ergonomics are significantly better than my Jeeps, but it doesn't feel as robust off-road. It seriously rides like a Mercedes at 80mph on the freeway.

Here is a picture of my old Jeep. I don't want to get as much money into this truck as I had in this Jeep. Also gas in California is $4.00 so I don't know if I will be lifting the truck and adding big tires anytime soon. I may just keep it stock and use it to go camping as much as possible.

I'm in the same boat. Have a rubi and ram. Normally took the jk but this past holiday weekend took the truck out. It did good for a stock sport. But I did notice the more room i had the more I packed lol. I want to lift and 35s. Bout it. I hope you enjoy the 1500.

Any thoughts on build ideas? Just curious since I have a Ram 1500 as well and looking for bed rack ideas.
