So I was watching TRX YouTube videos (a daily ritual while waiting for mine) and saw that a Seattle dealership had one and did a video. They closed at 8 PM so I jumped in the 2500 to take a look.

First, I have to start out that I'd NEVER buy anything from this stealership (Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Seattle on 135th Aurora). Struck up conversation with a sales guy and I asked if they sold it and he said yes, with a $10K ADM. I told him I bought one for MSRP and some loudmouth sales drone yelled, "you can't get this for MSRP anywhere!!!!" I told him I found it on a forum, found a dealer in Wisconsin, and that I've already paid for it (I've literally already wired the entire balance to the dealership and signed the purchase order). Guy wasn't having it. He just kept on saying, "you can't get it for MSRP I don't believe you." I mentioned the forums and moved on as I didn't really care what he thought, but damn, what a douche bag (I asked about the Wrangler 392 as I have an interest and they basically ignored me and said their allocation had just been sold (above MSRP). I'm kinda flabbergasted that this dealership is even in business considering how rude they were.

Ok, now back to the truck. My impressions.

Size - I was skeptical of the "it is so huge" stuff as I have a Ram 2500 and have been around a lot of large trucks. But wow, it is HUGE lol. My 2500 is longer, but the TRX is taller, wider and beefier. It looks MEAN. It looks like it has bad intentions. I was pretty stunned and I'm not easily awed as lifted big trucks are a dime a dozen in the PNW.

Color - I drove up to check it out as it was Granite Crystal, the same color as the truck I ordered (I'm in KZT status so should have soon). A very nice color and I was ecstatic about my color choice. I was worried about the 2 tone but the granite crystal matches up well with the black bottom.

Features - didn't like the bed spare tire takes up waaaay too much room. The tires and rims though are pretty nice for a stock vehicle. Interior is stunning.

All in all an amazing vehicle. Some pics:

My girlfriend wants a Wrangler so she stopped by. She's pretty short (4'10) but gives the truck some scale.

I think seeing them in person helps make the wait bearable. Think someone needs to make a site with a list of every dealer that sells at ADM across all the brands so when people are buying non-ADM vehicles, we know who to skip.

@WolverineHusky I finally got to see a TRX in person and it just happened to be an LE. You were spot on with your assessment. The truck was way wider and menacing in person than what you see online and does look like it has bad intentions lol. It was parked next to a Chevy 2500 HD and made it look pretty small. Now that I have seen the truck in person, I am even more anxious to order my granite TRX in the upcoming months.

One of the upsides of living in. the heart of 'flyover country' is that you can do business on a handshake (not a deposit) and being a loyal customer with a dealer is acknowledged. $87,520 MSRP. Selling price was $82,168 ($5,353 discount) and if Ram would have opened Affiliates program benefit (my employer is an FCA customer and supplier) another $1,495 discount would have been honored. ADM dealers suck.
Great deal! I need to talk to that dealer. Agree about the loyal customer part and it's wild to see how some dealers don't take care of customers...it's almost like they don't want repeat business lol
