    I was at the dealership checking out the new 2500 Rams the other day. I was kind of disappointed to see they all had the dial shifter. Does anyone know if there is still an option for a column shifter? I feel the dial shifter will be kind of a hinderance plowing snow

    Are you kidding?

    The rocker on the column shifter is a big enough PITA for those of us that plow in 1st gear. Now the dial shifter????

    I'd take a push button on the dash over a dial.

    Snowflakes can’t push buttons, might break a nail.

    I really liked the look of the new Ram 2500, until I saw the dial shifter

    Reminds me of the 62 belvedere I bought for a winter car from my great aunt in 1976.

    That is one thing that Ford has over the Rams. Being able to lock out gears and have them STAY locked out until you either manually selected them again or restarted the truck is something I miss. I hate having to lock out gears EVERY time I shift to drive.
