I have to say this thread cracks me up a bit ...

For years, I've heard the following sentiment - what's the best truck?

A ford supid duty with a cummins engine ... The list of things that made the ford a better truck to have was pretty short ...

1. Better interiors
2. Better transmissions

Dodge has fixed those problems ... I also see a lot more King Ranch's and dolled up Super Duties than I would expect as well. Must be pulling those expensive show horses or something.

Funny, the interior my truck looks new(minus the drivers seat) after it was clean up, prior owner was a contractor, truck was bought salvage. My dash is Mint, and yes it sits out all the time.

The rest of my interior is in really really good shape.
It's just the dash that looks like it has a terminal case of the "Creeping Crud"

What's funny is the interior ergonomics and fit in finish in my 7 year old Honda Accord EX-L is probably as nice if not nicer than a new Laramie .

I wish I could put that honda interior into my 2007!!!! Everything from the dash pad (yes it's actually padded) to the brushed aluminum accents.

Everything on that car is engineered well, I just changed the HVAC filter yesterday and even all that stuff up under there including dropping the glovebox door was well thought out.

I wouldn't mind having a more dressy interior, and air conditioning in the seats, but the styling is a bit too "giddyup" for my taste.

I liked the interior of my 03 Laramie, but I'd have to say the fit and finish of the plastic wasn't the greatest. The 06 Laramie I have now might be slightly improved, but the new style now seems to be a big jump forward. With the 68RFE they finally have a transmission close to being worthy of being mounted to the engine.

IMHO they aren't up to the fit and finish of the import brands, but they are making progress. Too bad the import brands are more likely to be made in the US.

yeah I seen them, but I wouldn't spend $60k.. I got a 2012 4th gen xlt and I just install leather seats that are ranch style, I don't need no sun roof heated steering wheel dual AC and heater I live in Texas as long as my AC works I'll be fine
