Yes heard on the news this morning Ram trucks moving from Mexico back to Warren, MI . This will delay the 3/4 and 1 tons for at least another year. Later RJD

There's steel elsewhere on the Ford that can rot. They're all prone to it to some extent. Frames, brake lines, spring perches/hangers, you name it, if it's steel, it'll rot where salt is used.

I'm not a fan of the new Ram 1500 exterior. Too generic IMO, but like the rest, the looks will likely change every couple years now.

I did read that the hood (already aluminum on current 1500), doors and roof will be aluminum. The bed will remain high strength steel.

Here's a spy photo going around of the 1500. Not a fan. Supposedly 2500's will wait for another year after they release the 1500 but uncertain on body changes.
