    Normally a vehicles styling grows on me after a few months.
    But I'm still not liking the new Ram.

    There has been an explosion of new DT's on the road in my area. I still think the overall style is mediocre, but I wouldn't pass one up!

    I'll agree. Happily, i'm finally seeing DT's on the road. Was getting worried, or dreaming conspiracies. Its not a bad design, there are some aspects i try not to fixate on.

    The HD will be interesting. Being kinda of a hybrid of the two generations will crystallize strengths and flaws of each.

    That's great. I'm loving the styling the more I see it.

    They are everywhere here in Central Florida, especially in the last month or so.

    Sales must have stalled around here. I'm on the interstate 100 miles a day and most days I don't see any.

    Didn't we have this same discussion of not seeing any of the new trucks on the road way back in 2002 when the 3rd gens came out?

    Your post raises a lot of good points. It is also frustrating to reply to because the discussion will lead away from the thread topic. We need to find or create another thread to discuss the pickup truck fad.

    I found a thread we can use to talk about the pickup truck fad. Or should I say pickup the pickup truck sales bubble? We can safely take over this thread since it fizzled out early in life.
    Pickup Trucks Are the New Luxury Car (at https://www.allpar.com/forums/threads/pickup-trucks-are-the-new-luxury-car.180757/ )

    Before I switch to this other thread with these thoughts, I will mention two memories from the 1970s. The first was that entry level pickups were at entry level car prices. The second memory from the 1970s was the van fad. Many people thought the full size van was the future of the automobile market.

    Please reply in the other thread.

    Just got back from a 600+ mile hunting trip to southern Missouri (from NW Ohio). Via I-69, I-70, and I-44. Did not see one DT. Saw a ton of Ram dual's though.

    Last week I drove through west Texas on 190 but did not see any. However, there was 5 minutes plus between seeing any cars.

    Herds were rare. Lots of sage. Hour between houses at times. Almost as baren as the CA desert.

    I used to drive on 190 every week for 15 miles and pass a pickup and maybe another truck.

    Probably back on that road next week. While houses are further apart on I-10, there is a ton more of traffic.Another 4k on the odometer this month.
