    No matter is some see a lot or none at all, the monthly sales numbers are the final arbiter of how many are on the road.

    We might have discussed this before, and I am actually set in a Laramie with the bench seat. Can you order a limited with the bench seat?

    We traded in the dart for a all new ram bighorn/long horn friday. So far it drives and feels like it handles way better then our cherokee

    I hate that they don't offer bench seating on a limited. That and not being able to get a sport/ black appearance on a limited.

    I'll second this. Wanting 6 person seating option and having all the goodies doesn't seam out there.

    I see a new 1500 every couple of days in Charlotte. All but 2 of them have been either Laramie or Limited's. Had a nice Laramie behind me today.

    What off road goodies do you get on a Rebel that are not included in the off road package of other models? That is to say If I were to buy a big horn with the off road package for fishing and hunting trips in Montana/Idaho is the Rebel going to get me to that 6x6 bull elk and the Big Horn Off Road leave me stuck?

    @Orsalak The only difference is the styling, the shocks are a brand name, and you get the wheel package from the Powerwagon...Good Year Duratracs with the Rebel, and Faulken tires with Offroad Group.

    The only other thing is with the Offroad Group you can pick your gear ratio 3.21 or 3.92...with the Rebel it is 3.92.

    The Rebel costs more is the other difference.

    No problem. The offroad group is an option I would definitely get. I sure hope the whole setup makes it to the 2500 also.

    The Rebel is an awesome truck...but looks are subjective and not everyone is into that look...but the Offroad Group really adds some usefulness to the truck.

    Hill descent will work well for getting you out to that bull elk also. Somewhere here, I think, but definitely at 5thgenrams.com I tried my best to figure out how useful it is. Seems from the people who actually use a truck like that...it is not just a gimmick.

    I would suggest for pretty much anyone to get the 3.92 gears. It totally changes the truck. Love them!

    You get steel on the front and rear bumpers, with some better approach in the front from the bumper design. Also you don’t have the option for 4auto on the rebel, it’s a beefier transfer case with only RWD, 4hi, and 4low.

    Yup, awesome combo. Though it’s been debated, I still believe there is little to no MPG penalty. :)

    Yeah it is odd that tradesman and rebel have the part time standard with no option and the Bighorn has the on demand standard with no option. I understand the higher trims having the on demand standard and the Rebel and tradesman having the part time standard...but I figured the bighorn would get the option of both.

    Disappointed about demise of the ram boxes. I love mine on '14 Laramie CC.

    Demise of RamBox? They offer it in 5'7 and I am fairly sure they will be back on 6'4 at some point in the near future.
