    I would never buy a truck without 4WD - even if I lived in an area where it never snowed (I'm in New England where it never stops snowing so 4WD is a must). I've had to use it at shows on wet grass -...

    Exactly. The RAM isn't a Dodge product anymore. I've been driving RAM'S for close to 20 years and have been very happy. The 1500 comes in a diesel now and that would be my choice!
