The top Ram's biggest strength? Goin' fast as hell.
The author seems to be a Raptor fanboy.
The performance spec sheet may be impressive, but the first area of disappointment, to me, is the styling. It looks bloated, it looks run-of-the-mill, and with the beefy beadlock wheels, optional Ram Bar, and a second spare tire mounted in the bed, it looks like a try-hard, wannabe Baja truck. That's before we even get to the fake vents.
After a long day of mudding, dune-ing, jumping, and doing all kinds of things that your chiropractor urges you not to do, I understood that the TRX isn't as agile, quick, communicative, nor enjoyable off-road as the Raptor (which is 700 pounds lighter in similar guise). It simply isn't. Its massive size, height, and weight don't help power through obstacles with confidence, and its heavy front end understeers more often than not.
let’s just say I wasn’t very impressed with his opinion.
