    Yes to Ram - that would be a good excuse for a new truck.

    Have you ever wondered why Ford has a Harley-Davidson edition pickup but Harley doesn't make a Ford edition motorcycle? :oops:

    I'd rather see them do something Harley HASN'T done. Riding Harley's coattails is too easy.

    Those HD Ford trucks were expensive and didn't sell well. People were able to pick them up at a substantial discount later on.

    Fuckno! Why would anybody want to pay 5000.00 extra for just a added name on the side of a vehicle? For every sucker born... there's two to take him... to the cleaners. Why don't you just take yourself to the dry cleaners? Much cheaper.

    For what a HD truck cost, you could buy a brand new (base model) truck AND a brand new (base model) Harley AND a sticker for your back windshield!!

    I sold my 2006 ram big horn Cummings diesel and bought a 2016 Laramie ram Cummings last year,loved my 06 but my wife's back went south on her and the 06 was beating her up .the new ones ride way better, the only reason I could get in the new one was I got a good amount out of the 06 to put down on the 16 ,this will be the last truck I will buy way two pricey.

    A lot more to that than just a HD name with chrome. Tires, wheels, interior, engine not optional, ect. Those trucks sell fast and there has always been a HD - Ford connection somewhat. Both retirement and purchasing plans are about the same. Both allow purchases after retirement or x numbers of years vested and both offer vendor direct supplier discounts ( 2% UNDER invoice ). Most HD stores in the gulf side of FL and other areas I know will discount bikes and accessories for Ford dealer and factory employees and especially those who sell trucks to the HD stores. Too many years of seeing this. I'm sure this goes back some years and it may have the union common thing going there also. Resale on HD model Ford trucks is always higher due to the more standard equipment.

    I know a guy that had an HD Ford. After about 10 years his grill got smashed and he had a lot of trouble replacing it since it was a special one they quit making and you could no lone get a grill like that.
