    Time for a change like the looks of the ram better. Ride better and interiors r nicer I think. I had ford trucks for 27 yrs they r good trucks but not as good as they think

    JMHDAO, white is the stupidest colour for a vehicle that I can think of. Impossible to keep clean.

    But I do like it. I can't tell, is it a Cummings?

    White is easier to keep clean than any dark color . No it's a 6.4 gas . I have no use for a oil burner in a pickup

    I had to buy a white one last year.

    Other colours do not show dirt nearly as quickly as white. Maybe black, but white is the worst I have ever owned.

    Keep us informed on how the 6.4 does, I am thinking about one.

    White is good for not showing swirl marks in clear coat. Other than that it's just the least expensive of the colors, as the commercial truck world, almost all trucks are white. When I bought my box truck, I searched high and low for any color other than white. Finally found a Silver Bullet, and it's been great. To me, either silver, or gold colors are easiest to maintain, as they don't show the dirt as easily, and can forgo frequent washings.... Hides the swirl marks as well.

    Have fun with the new ride. Looks like a nice truck..

    Very nice truck. White is the best color to get for resale value. The next buyer might want to letter the truck.

    I have had silver, green, blue, and red trucks . My company color for my trucks is red . I wanted this truck to be more of a family truck instead of a work truck. I think the silver laramie trim goes nicely with the white and gives it an upscale look for a pickup. That's y I went with white . Now it's time for a 9.6 fisher stainless v

    Should look very nice with a stainless V.

    Wish mine had that trim.
