    Is that penstastar motor related to the v6 in Chrysler 300’s? It’s a great motor.

    I can't believe out of all these trucks none of you got the Raytheon Radar Package. Maybe it's a Denali option.:D:D:D 20180524_203323.jpg
    After I removed the radar and added the leveling kit.

    I think that radar was part of Chevy's early attempt at a self-driving car.

    I didn't lower, but I think that might be part of the Laramie Longhorn package. Can't confirm but still researching

    I believe they used it in quite a few models so I’d say yes.

    I'll play...

    '06 Ram 2500 Hemi...sold it when I move to a company ride...

    upload_2022-11-23_21-54-28.png

    '14 F150 3.5 EcoBoost...bought it when we switched from company provided to an allowance...

    upload_2022-11-23_21-55-16.png

    '16 F150 2.7 EcoBoost...bought it to get the panoramic moonroof and the new body style...(and the '14 hit 60k miles). My son got to pull the plastic off when she arrived.

    upload_2022-11-23_21-55-42.png

    '19 Ram 1500 Hemi...the '16 hit 60k miles...time for a new ride...

    upload_2022-11-23_21-56-4.png

    Sold it after switching back to a company car and was tired of watching her sit....barely broken in with 20k miles. By far, the '19 Ram was the favorite of the bunch and I'm very tempted to order another new one...

    Ram has come such a long way in terms of exterior and interior style. They are now beautiful trucks.

    Bought this '16 XLT with higher mileage as our Florida vehicle. Wanted certain things like 4x4, bench front seats so 3 couples can ride in it, good condition, etc., all at a cheap price.

    When I got the truck it had the puny little wheels and tires so I bought some Platinum take-offs and put them on. Added bed liner, bed cover and tinted the windows. I also replaced the tired cloth interior with a Katzkin leather interior. Huge improvement.

    Wasn't crazy about the red color as I'm usually a white/gray truck buyer but you get what you get when buying used vehicles. Well, after getting to Florida I realized the red was a brilliant choice. Holy Smoke, there are some crazy drivers in that neck of the woods and it's good to be seen from a distance. Now it's the perfect FL ride.

    It's amazing what those small additions can do to a truck. I put a spray in bed liner in my first two and the last two were a bedrug. For how I use a truck, the bedrug is amazing and easy on the knees.

    Dark tint on the windows and a soft roll up bed cover as well.

    You have good taste @copb8tx

    I had bedrug in my last daily driver truck and in the current raptor. Since I tent camp in the bed of the truck on dirt bike weekends it's like having a luxury condo back there :)

    Not my current ride.
    Blast from the late 1980s.

    The red and silver one was a complete rebuild of the brown and tan truck.My 1975 blazer was all ready for paint .. took it out in the mountains one more time before I was painting it and rolled it. So at the shop one night while staying late and having beers with my buddies we pulled it in the shop and took the body off the frame and about four hours later I decided to take our shop truck and turn it into a chevastun.
    The little black truck is a 66 Datsun. It took about three months to build. put the 350 engine with a turbo 400 trans in it had to narrow the axles from the blazer move the fire wall back six inches fab a new trans tunnel.. etc.
    Fun simple days back then.

    Your pics bring back some fine memories.
    My first truck was a '75 chev blazer. Was pretty hard on it but learnt how fun it was to toss mud up in the air.
    From it I grabbed a '73 gm hd2500 (My all-time favorite). Stuffed a 454 (my first build) in front of its 4 speed. It had a 10,000 pound winch in the front and a 9000 in rear. It all sat on a set of aggressive 36" military tires. Fuel price was not a thing back then. It was all about having fun and we sure did.
    Unfortunately, I was pretty young and taking pics was not a thing for me. Really wish it had of been.

    My 2019 F150 XLT 302a. It was a big milestone for me as it was my first ever new vehicle. I treated myself for my 31st birthday.

    Honorable mention for the wifes’ 2020 Edge ST. It’s fast but the truck is faster :cool:
