What sound does a moose make?


I was a little disappointed with the puddle lights.

Scott - Thanks for the video comparison of the exhaust. did you only replace the stock muffler with the Flowmaster Outlaw only or did you do other changes? to me the sound is exactly what i want.

I am in the market for an exhaust system and was going to purchase the borla s-type cat back system. It's running me $1k but if i can get similar sound from simply switching the muffler it will cost me 60% less.

So far the rest of the truck has been good. I have 4,600 miles on it already, I think this would be the last Ram I'd own just cause of the seats and the way they did the interior since they don't have the room the F150s give you. I'm waiting for it to get warm and stay warm to do the HID conversion since I don't want to mess with the plastic trim while it.s still cold out.

I got a Bedrug mat for the back and I was expecting it to be a little different but it's still nice to have.

Interesting take on the seats. I have the exact opposite opinion. I too came from an F150 and thougth those seats were thin, and the leather made me slide everywhere.

The Rebel side bolstering does it for me. I love these seats.


To each his own.

It's just a muffler swap so it's pretty basic to do. 3 clamps and it's off, I did take the end pipes off to get the muffler out. When you put it back I'd put some oil on the male part of the pipe so it goes in easier. I put them in dry the first time and it took a little more work getting the pipes in all the way. The 2nd time I did it with some Aero oil and they went in easily.

I live out of my truck and find it harder to eat off of the center console with the ram seats since they hold you in better. I never felt like I was sliding around in the F150 seat and seemed to have a little more adjustment too. Being sporty doesn't make things comfortable especially being in there for 22.000 miles a year. I was more concerned about looks with this truck and will be looking at luxury from now on since everyone says the Laramie seats are better or Ford lariat and above just because of how much time I'm sitting in it.
