New Toy: 2001 Dodge Ram 1500

October 5, 2023

There is nothing quite as sexy on a vehicle to me as good curves….

For quite some time, I have wanted a second generation Dodge Ram pickup. I just get excited when I see all the curves on the front. Since moving out of town, we have been doing a lot of projects that involve hauling things, and the Subaru Outback just is not quite the same for hauling. So I finally got myself a truck.

Say hello to my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie. 360 engine, short bed.

It has some bumps and bruises, as all older trucks will, but overall it has been kept up in pristine condition. Single owner since new. The typical clear coat and cracked dash issues are not present. I believe it spent a lot of time under cover. I have done many projects with it now, including hauling 2,000 pounds of sand in the bed. It just keeps going, as a Dodge should.
