I ended up buying a new RAM Laramie to replace it and couldn't be happier.

Depending on what you need a vehicle for, the Ridgeline is one solid, extremely dependable vehicle.
As much as I dislike to do it, my truck is getting older and in need of head gaskets... where-as I have a source to possibly pick up a Ridgeline for a low price.

My days of 'hopeful' mudding are probably over ('hopeful' because I never could afford a real mudding truck anyway), but at least the Ridgeline seems to have a long enough bed to pick up one of my stranded motorcycles if need be.
