Went to local dealership w/ my lovely wife to check out the SLT cloth bench seat vs Laramie leather bucket seat. (we tested the Laramie-although hemi engine) Specifically, for her it's the seat comfort level. I wanted to see how the suspension carried over the freeway expansion joints and overall handling.
Got to say, we were both quite impressed. I liked the height, the beefy feel (felt the same as when I tested the 3500), the quietness, and just the general overall satisfaction knowing that I'm making the right decision of downsizing.
The picture I had in my mind of a 1500 was a 180 of what I experienced.
He said 2 Ecodiesels were in transit and would call once they arrive and I'll take one for a spin. He said at that time, the ordering would open.
