There are some regular guys for sure that have RAM trucks, I occasionally see one in traffic that's not tailgating everyone and actually uses their signal lights.  I think that brand tends to attract a more redneck kinda crowd, and so has a higher percentage of douchnozzles driving them.

Lately I've noticed more rig-rocket-styled Tundras with giant lift kits and so on - and those guys are the WORST for being aggressive fucktard drivers.

I think the trucks douchenozzles like the most are:

1. RAM
2. RAM
3. RAM
4. Modded to wazoo F150
5. Modded to wazoo Tundra
6. Stock F150
7. Any stock GM
8. Stock Tundra

And would rather be kicked in their micropenis than be seen in a Ridgline or Tacoma.

There is a guy here in Beaumont with a bro dozer/rig rocket Tundra, which is hilarious because its a Tundra which is about as aggressive as a bunny with a sharpened carrot, and he has some god awful aftermarket exhaust on it that you can here from 3 postal codes away. He ruined a perfectly good truck.

Does anyone on the forum here own a recent-ish RAM truck?  ;D

While not technically mine; my company vehicle right now is a 2014 Ram Hemi quad cab. I installed a bunch of the accessories we sell on it, and it get used for some events once and awhile. It's got a cat-back, fender flares, rims (although stock 20" size), leveling kit, bull bar, and some other nominal stuff. I don't drive it a ton (because press cars from the other gig) but when I do I drive it pretty conservatively because it's covered in company branding  :rofl: It is a fine driving truck though, the Hemi feels (and sounds) excellent.

For what it's worth though; i agree with all the other comments here....Ram's definitely over index on the douche scale. My impression is that they're "cheaper" in that the incentives and financing options are pretty aggressive which make them more accessible to the proletariat; they're also almost always a few grand cheaper on the used market than a comparable GM or Ford.

And when the stealership gets them in the box, the sell them all the upgrades and accessories to further put them upside down  :rofl:

4. Modded to wazoo F150


I've seen a giant ass F150 (pretty sure its a 150) crew cab long box dually. Wheels sticking about 8 inches outside flared fenders. Its retardedly wide. This is in TORONTO.

Pretty sure its illegal. I recall the plate, which is a vanity plate, so would make it easy to locate. He wasn't driving too terribly though so I didn't bother calling it in.
You can't just have your characters announce how they feel.
That makes me feel angry!

^^ Prolly F-350. No such thing as an F-150 dually.

I saw a guy in the grocery store parking lot here once. Had his truck lifted so high there was actually a chrome ladder thing with three or four rungs hanging down below the driverís door so he could climb in. Dually as well, as I recall - Ford F-550.

And this guy is at the grocery store, just cruising the lot looking for a place to park. Just out buying his groceries. Like WTF?  ???

Rumour has it that an RPG is good against lifted trucks.
Some people think that if you squeeze the essence out of a fungus left over from beer-brewing you end up with a foodstuff that is precisely as appetizing as it sounds. Others are quite partial to Marmite.

i find the correlation extends to people with bad credit.... bad credit are often douchnozzles and when buying a truck, the ram is the only one they can afford. (broad generalization, and not saying bad things about all people with bad credit, but those who overlap into truck-lovers category tend to be the type you are all referring to)

i sold over 50 rams last year... of those, i bet 5 were douche bags... another 5 were idiots and the rest were ok from what i could tell. still means 20% of the people were annoying though.

also something that account for the added option douchey-ness, we don't lease (much)... fords especially and some GM twins are leased. they don't trick out leased trucks.
i used to be addicted to soap, but i'm clean now

Meh, just some young guy with a bit of a sense of humor. I don't find that offensive in the least bit, I just wouldn't put it on my truck.

while it would have been funny 30 years ago, it wouldn't be something you put on a truck. it's interesting how that has changed. morals and such really haven't changed, but tact and decency really has changed.

makes me think of the scene in idiocracy where they show the time passing by the changes to the name fuddruckers... over the decades it eventually just stops being tongue in cheek and switches to buttf***ers. classy.
