Where did you see $57k?

We drove on- and off-road north of Los Angeles in a well-equipped (estimated price: $39,940) Ram 1500 rear-wheel-drive crew cab with mid-level Lone Star trim.

I like the sound of that. 2,000 rpm is about 70mph in my current truck, and its torque peak of 320 lb/ft is seen at 4,000 rpm, which is stupid for a vehicle with a 5,000 rpm redline that's supposed to haul stuff

400 lb/ft at 2000 rpm would make for some effortless highway running when hooked to my 6,000 lbs horse trailer!

$39k is mid-level. That's more than I paid for my SuperDuty Lariat new, with almost every option.

The Diesel in the 1500 is only a $2850 upcharge from the HEMI.

Last time I was at a FORD dealership, the loaded SuperDuty trucks were $65K (MSRP).

Crap, now I can't find that wild price. Maybe it was in an article in one of the magazines I have at home.

You'd pay a lot more than that today.

(And the $39,000 one in the C&D article is 2 wheel drive)

I just visited ramtrucks.com and priced out a 1500 Lone Star Quad 4x4 with the EcoDiesel and the MSRP came to $42,500.

If you select the Laramie Limited 4x4 which is the top of the line trim the MSRP is $54,000. I didn't select every option so it's possible there are a few that would get one up to that $57k price you saw.

The Lariat sticker isn't that much different today than when I bought my truck, so I think I could still get a similar one for ~$40k

Don't you live up in East Meth-el or something? That's always been the standard d-bag bro ride up there. Hell, even the height of the drive thru ATM's up there are based on the height of a lifted truck.
