Four wheel drive I hope.
I hope the war on terror goes better then the war on drugs and the war on poverty
If you dont care where you are your never lost
Im a survivor not a victim
Its not who I am but what I do that defines me.

I wouldn't want a truck without four wheel drive. One of the selling points I liked about this one was that it actually had the manual transfer case instead of the push button or knob type. I got stuck in the woods one time because of a solenoid that went out  on my S10 push button 4x4 once. The electric ones are just something else to go bad.

I'll be interested to see how well the Dodge holds up for you.

Do you know something I don't know? The one thing that really worries me about the Dodge Rams is I hear they have transmission issues. The funny thing is I know a lot of people who drive them, but have not had any problems. I checked reviews on them and really didnt find any thing that stuck out. I guess I will just have to see.

Personally, I've not had good experiences with Chrysler products. Had a number of near new rentals with stuff falling off already. Had a Sebring convertible with less than 3,000 miles and the truck latch wouldn't engage.

I recently replaced my BOV with a different version.  My previous Tacoma (2007 Access Cab, i4, long bed) was totaled this summer when a lady decided that stop signs were optional and blew through an intersection in front of me.   I was lucky to walk away (seat belts and air bags are good things...)

Here is the replacement: 2010 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner.  I opted again for a two wheel drive, but this one has a double cab, v6 and a foot shorter bed.  With the beating my last on took and I was able to walk away, there really was not much choice in the matter.
