GUTS

GLORY

THE BEST OF THE BEST

BETTER THAN FORD AND CHEVY

RAM

Dont, get me wrong here. I'm all for Ram is the best truck.
But the guts and glory thing is really starting to get boring.

Sorry but I'm so stupid and have nothing else to do so I do the guts and glory crap. I need to stop as Mama has already got the hickory switch out so I need to run for now, OH SH@$!!

Out of interest, how does Ram use the word Glory?

Does the Ram marketing people understand the definition of glory?

Fiat/Ram doesn't seem to fit the definition of the word "GLORY". Actually no vehicle does. It must be Fiat marketing targeting simplistic rural types who have a limited vocabulary of single syllable words, even then they seem to struggle.

glo·ry [glawr-ee, glohr-ee] Show IPA
noun, plural glo·ries.
1.
very great praise, honor, or distinction bestowed by common consent; renown: to win glory on the field of battle.
2.
something that is a source of honor, fame, or admiration; a distinguished ornament or an object of pride: a sonnet that is one of the glories of English poetry.
3.
adoring praise or worshipful thanksgiving: Give glory to God.
4.
resplendent beauty or magnificence: the glory of autumn.
5.
a state of great splendor, magnificence, or prosperity.

Maybe if Ram was American owned and not by some foreigners they would be able to use the English language better and use the words to accurately define the Fiatsler Rambardini pickup.

ie,

"Goat Violator 1500" seem a better word, or,

"how about, the Ram 1500 Almost", or,

Does the 1500 on the Fiat denote the power of the engine ie, the equivalent power of a 1500cc Toyota Yaris?

Yes, this is a troll, like my TRX4 Tom story :) You do get sick of Ram $hit, sort of like getting dog $hit on the bottom of your shoe. Same feeling anyway.

Give it up Allpar, go back there.

What I love about this project is that is shows how innovative Dodge was before just like today! First a little history lesson for the youngsters. Ya see Ram used to be called Dodge. But we had to change the name cause Dodge just had too much market recognizion with too strong an association with quality and it was makin all the haters jealous! Now back to the Dodge innovation. Notice how the cab is misaligned with the bed by about a full inch. This was to help with off roading! Factory built breakover angle improvement! Also notice how the black body trim is misaligned on every single body panel and looks like a snake as you follow it down the side. This is actually a type of vortex generator to help the already aerodynamic body slip even better through the air! As before just like today Mopar is all about innovation and quality!

Mark Williams,

You ban BAFO. Big Al is an international cyber terrorist and spammer.

Get him and his rude behavior, spam and globalist/communist posts off of PUTC.

Mark Williams,

You need to ban BAFO. Big Al is an international cyber terrorist and spammer.

Get him and his rude, anti-American, and pro-globalist/communist spam off of PUTC.

@Big Al: You don't like Ram, we get it.

Maybe you should go pitch your "diesel is best for everone" and "our Aussie midsize trucks can honestly do what they are rated to do" campagn, and go elsewhere?

But whatever. Got some degree online and ya think you know something about trucks?

anyway...good story

@TRX4 Tom
It's not that I don't like Ram.

It appears the Alltards are the worst at submitting pure crap on this site. A fare portion of your comments are biased. You guys brought this on yourselves.

Am I a midsize supporter or anti gas? Have you read my comments? I'm anti EV and the other wasteful energies like CNG for road transportation.

Why? Because tax payers are paying for someone else's investment. Similar to a subsidised job. I would support these alternatives if they were able to 'stand on their own two feet'.

Why should my mother, brother, nieces and nephews pay extra taxes so some person can feel good about themselves every morning when they jump into their EV or Prius or CNG powered pickup, that already has the most protection of any vehicle sold in the US.

My niece waitresses in NJ and she earn $hit money and drives a bucket. Is this fair to her? The same goes for your pickups, why should she pay taxes to subsidise some UAW worker? Or any of my family in the States pay additional taxes to support unviable practices.

I support free trade not market protectionism. That's my angle. But you simplistic rural types can't comprehend that. The protectionist approach is sending the US/EU/Japan broke. It isn't sustainable and is costing all of you your standard of living. What I just stated isn't communism. Read up on what communism is.

What I do support about midsizers? It isn't the midsizer themselves. I support the ability of any vehicle to be allowed to be sold without tariffs and protection. Its just this is a pickup site and the US has a very protected industrial base regarding the production and sale of pickups. If you can prove otherwise show me.

If you read TTAC under one of your many names you will know that I don't even support the subsidisation of our Australian auto industry. My view is I own a Mazda, why should I then pay additional tax for someone to buy a car they want, ie, Falcon, Commodore, etc just because it is manufactured in Australia. Who subsidised the price of my vehicle? I actually paid a tax on it of 5%.

Supporting our auto industry doesn't make me more Australian or driving a ute doesn't make me more Australian.

Just like in America, if you think you are an American because you drive a pickup then you are a sad person. I don't value a person on what they drive, let alone the brand of what they drive.

There is a subset cultural belief we have here with the Holden and Ford ute guys. We even have this attitude with some of the Toyota Hilux/Landcruiser ute crowd as well.

If you judge people by what they drive and judge your won patriotism just because you drive a pickup I feel sorry for you.

I enjoy my ute, not because I'm Australian or even an American. Because it allows me the freedom and ability to travel in a environment that most of you guys have never experienced.

I show my belief in my country by my work. I also view the US in a very similar light, along with the UK, Canada and NZ.

In the end you appear to be very narrow minded to the point you can't make an accurate assessment of a situation.

Your life is at the point where you treat an inanimate object with reverence, awe, that's why you use the word 'glory' which I do find offensive coming from the military.

How hollow is your life?

This is a Dodge, Ram is only the model. Ram was not a Brand when this was built
