    2015 RAM Rebel

    No, not a Raptor rival but more of TRD Pro rival… Pretty ugly and pretty disappointing they continue to use the electric Rotatory dial shifter to command the sweet ZF derived 8 speed. LINKY to Autoblog and TLFTruck

    First experience with Defenders

    My wife and I took a vacation to Aruba last week and went on a touristy off-road trip to the other side of the island. The neatest part of the entire trip was the fact the tour company just got a fresh fleet of new Defender chassis cabs. Man, these trucks were cool! It was actually the first...
