    the TRX outperforms the Raptor at the gas pump as well. Let's not forget that

    That's a good thing, since you'll be spending so much time there. :)

    So there is finally competition for the Gen 1 with a supercharger. Guess what: the turdy TRX will run out of gas before the end of the run from Barstow to Vegas. Been there to know that!! Good luck with your "street queen" FIAT!!

    those things will be fine - the engines are strong, the ZF trannies were designed to handle the power from get go- if they’re willing to put 60k warranties on these things when they’re AWD & they KNOW people will be stomping the pedal stoplight to stoplight over @ over again from day one- therefore I gotta believe the diffs/axle/1/2 shafts/tranny all built to handle it- especially cuz it’s a design shared across a # of platforms.

    your infotainment system may shit the bed

    1/2 the electronics & switches may go wonky

    the interior trim on the dodges can look cheap

    but my guess is the running gear will be legit & hold up well

    I already said it previous- I love that they put a nice green/blue powdercoat on the whole frame- very VERY nice touch for a niche specialty vehicle @ this price point- really drives the exclusivity home in a discrete way only car guys will know

    TRX is owed credit for motor and couple other areas. Still love the raptor as a DD and look forward to them (hopefully) putting a SCV8 in Gen 3 ( I know GT500 motor is most likely, but to me nothing can beat a TTV8)

    Neither TTV8 or SCV8 is needed . A powerboost motor would be a much better DD then either of them, for mpg or performance.

    With that said why a TTV8, it is well know a SCV8 sounds worlds better . Perfect example is listen to a Range Rover SVR vs a Urus.

    To be honest I was more excited about the prototype. I'm not really feeling the actual production version.
    1) im not in love with the Ram looks at all
    2) All the talk about it being a super truck means less daily usability to me, I think my '19 Raptor really is a do it all truck
    3) A true super truck to me would be a $200,000+ luxury prerunner.
    I think Ford is going to murder them with the next Raptor. A Power boost with 16 inches of travel and 25 MPG its no contest.

    Should sell well at or above msrp. Ticks a lot of boxes most look for a truck right now.

    1. Aggressive look. 35's, wider flares, etc
    2. Supercharged, quick truck for a tank
    3. Gas is cheap, and if you're thinking about a 90k, 707hp truck on 35's then a gas bill should be low on your worry list.
    4. Easily modifiable. The 6.2 has been out for years and shares the same tech as the hellcats in the charger,challenger and jeep. Aftermarket for suspension should be there too in short order
    5. Interior of the Rams >> Ford
