I would have ordered a cab and chassis. Put the bed I wanted on it. Since owning a hauler bed I will never own anything else. Much more versatile and you can actually see to back up

New truck will be about the same as this one but will have bed cam for ease of hitching.

I am sure the hauler beds are nice but so far I like what I have.

Let me know - interested in the Maxbrake! Need a PM?

Of course, I was going to say something smart, like "I thought you ordered a truck, then I find out it's a Dodge Ram"! LOL ! Nice truck, BTW!

Once one owns a truck with a flat or hauler bed, you will never want anything else. Hauler beds actually look good too.

I plan to but most people say the 12 and newer RAM controllers work great. I hope!

Real shame MaxBrake is gone. Truly seamless braking.
