Default New Truck Time

We have been in Arizona for a month now. I can not live without a truck to haul things. The Subaru just can't get all of the jobs done for furnishing a new to us home. We only moved what could fit in the Subaru down to AZ this trip. I had been looking in WY at the new full size trucks Ford, GM, Toyota, Nissan and Ram for a couple months. None of the seats seemed to provide the adjustment I wanted except for the Ram seats. The others just felt like I was laying back in an easy chair and that is not how I drive. The Ram seats sit flatter and more upright for my driving. I ended up purchasing a 2018 Ram 1500 Laramie edition in Arizona. The end of the year deals are running now and I got about 12K+ off the sticker price of the 2018. It will also have chrome tube running boards and a matching cab high camper installed soon.

Good looking truck, a very good looking truck. Enjoy it.

I don't know how anybody can live without a truck of some sort in the family. Mine is 19-years old. It's a Ford F350 dually with about 80K miles on it. It has served me faithfully over the years but it's 'way too big for my current needs. Every few years I get the longing for a new smaller truck, that is until I look at the cost of the new ones. That's when I decide that maybe my old girl has a few years left in her yet.

Nice truck. I've been lusting for a new truck for a while. I'm not particular on what brand. It most likely won't be dodge though due to a crappy local dealership and the next nearest one being a 5 hour drive from here.

Looks Nice. I bet it rides nice too.
I missed the news that you are now in AZ. What a big change. Is this a 2nd home or a permanent move (if you don't mind my asking)?

Yes Doc, we purchased a new to us winter home in AZ last January. We finally got down here the first of March this year. We have not yet decide if we want to do two homes again so the WY home may get sold. I am tired of winter dictating my day. We can see all of the snow we want on the mountains behind our AZ home. We are at about 4500 foot elevation and the mountains behind us are over 9,000 foot so the temperature is not nearly as hot as the big city of Phoenix/Tucson but very mild compared to our WY home town. I worked outside most of my life in the cold of the northern US and decided last fall it was a time for change. After a 4000 mile road trip through the SW US looking for "our spot" we picked Sierra Vista AZ.

New to us winter home:

I got my eye on the new Rangers, but that big sticker price will have me looking away again.
