Its quite popular and the design is great. Lots of people are making small changes or adding accessories, like light bars, roll bars, tonneau covers, etc...

Are you considering any other trucks? Have you owned a truck before?

Greetings from about 40 minutes west of Toronto.

Finally got mine. :) Ordered from the factory so I had to wait a bit for it to be built and delivered.

Very nice truck.

Oh that's good to know!

I've never owned a truck before, and very keen on getting one!

Have you own one or currently drive one?

I got Granite Crystal Metallic.. Picked it up today. :)

Fit and finish is good on the truck.. was pleasantly surprised. paint is good, bumpers are level..

No pics yet though.. it was raining when I picked it up.. had to go home and work a bit more and then went to go get my mom and take her for dinner. hopefully this weekend I will get it detailed and some pics..

Oh awesome!! How was the drive on the truck? :eek:

That's too bad that it was raining!

I'm looking forward to seeing the pics! :D

Have fun with the new truck!

Pretty much everyone in here has a Rebel and/or has owned other brands.

The Rebel is a somewhat tricked out Ram 1500, to me the most notable difference is the air suspension. Most other changes are cosmetic, except maybe tires and wheels. I mention the suspension in particular because it changes how the 1500 platform rides. Its just a bit tighter/stiffer than say a Sport with coil springs.

You need to test drive some of the other 1/2 ton pickups if you have never owned one. They all ride quite differently. I try them every 3 years when my lease is up and always conclude the Ram is easily the best driving pickup on the road. On number 5 now.

There are some really helpful posters in here although we are somewhat biased. Any questions you have usually get answered pretty quickly but the test drive should weigh the most in your decision.

Best of luck.

Hey Chowda.

Thanks for the insight on your experience with the trucks.

So in your opinion, you would stick to the RAM over the rebel? or would you consider trying out the rebel and switching over to it?

Sounds like you've had good experiences with the RAM and onto #5 . That's great!

I'll definitely have to go test drive some of the pick up trucks soon, to figure it out.

The Rebel is a RAM. ;)

The Rebel sits between a sport and a laramie in the RAM 1500 lineup. A truck drives differently than a car. No surprise there. 4wd is a whole other monster. It is not crazy glue and in some cases like ice, can actually make traction worse. In snow/mud it works great.

If you plan on going off-road at all look into the OF4WD. They do newbie runs a couple times a year and will take you on some mild off-road drives and answer any questions you might have about your very capable truck and it's 4wd system. I took my FX-4 on a newbie run last year. I plan on taking my Rebel this year but I am in Sarnia so it's a much longer drive.

Just my $0.02.

Welcome!

haha is it now? :eek:

It's going to be my first truck so I'm indecisive as there's so many good reviews on the RAM and then the REBEL which others are hyped about!

I would love to get my first truck looking a bit sporty :D

I don't think I'll be going off road too often, but wouldn't mind the newbie run LOL

Sarnia... sounds like within ontario! :p

How was it like taking the FX4?

When are you taking on the REBEL!!! :D

Have you been considering any other trucks so far or what?
I know some people have been looking at the Raptor and some so decided on the Raptor that they ditched this forum :D

Yes, Sarnia, Ontario.

Newbie run 2015:

I brought my daughter along and it was a lot of fun. Can't afford it this year but I plan on going again with the Rebel.

Yes that is a Unimog in the background. We went on our own trail run after the newbie one was over. I wasn't worried since he could pull me out of anything. He never needed to.

(This forum software is the only place where those images are rotated 90 degrees. I even opened them in photoshop to correct the rotation and there is nothing to correct. It's the forum's end not mine. Ridiculous.)

To be honest, I've been considering other trucks too lol

Raptors was my other option LOL since I like the color blue....

But I'm still debating! I don't know what to decide on! :(

How about you?

That looks like fun!

How was the drive in it?
