yup...

Brandi's big brother is my new 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 with a Hemi in it...

We went shopping for a beater run around truck that would save some wear and tear on Brandi... and the further we shopped the more picky we got... Then the thought of a tow vehicle came about, and my wife saw this truck really liked it... as did I....

We didn't test drive it but asked for a rock bottom price and Chris, this little elderly sales lady invited us in to talk... The sales manager came in and had some numbers but we hadn't test drove it yet, so he requested that we do so so we would know what we were hearing... >> test drive>> back in the office... and a different dude, one I actually like came in and like the first guy had promised... he blew our socks off with the offer... No trade in, no BS, we bought the truck... I'm thrilled with it... and no, there will not be any mods done to this truck... It will retain it's full warranty... Now I need to find a trailer to put Brandi on and to pull with the truck...

Today, Brandi is headed back to the shop so I wanted to get some pics to compare the colors... It's really really close....

I think they will look good together headed down the road...

Thanks Mike, I know it isn't Red Jewel Tint, but it's so close... I'm really happy with the look... Not to find a nice flat bed trailer, (or build one) and paint the frame Red Jewel, and then have the bed be flat black... With a tire rack, and tool box, compressor, etc... Maybe by the Fest I can manage this... but I still have to build the rack and guard for Matt's trailer first...

James at Hennessey was selling a very nice trailer a couple months ago... not sure if it's still available or not...
