    I was looking for a pickup in the $25k or less range (still buying a JL, but canít swing it right now).

    I drove the Ram tonight. It has a shit ton of power, it looks good, itís comfortable, and will probably get better gas mileage than the Ford. Itís 2 years newer, and has almost 30k less miles. The Ram is sitting in my driveway, right now. The beater Camry is still around, so now I have 3 vehicles. Problem solved.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Congrats. You'll love it and if you ever want to tow they do damn good as well. Have never had an issue pulling with mine.

    Congrats on the new purchase. The hemi is a fun motor. It's always fun to romp on it. Had a high school kid think he was bad ass in his V6 mustang. It didn't hold a candle to our Durango..haha.

    Nice color!

    Iíd say 395 bhp & 410 lb.ft. torque ought to. Since itís 4x4, and has 3.21 gears, itís rated for just over 8,000 lbs. Iím sure you already knew it.

    I was thinking it had the same hp as the Grand Cherokee, but I was pleasantly surprised.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
