So my TRX arrived Thursday but had damage to bumper. Dealer wanted to hold off on delivery but I couldn’t wait! Top impressions

Good
1. Simply looks amazing! Better in person. Especially the Anvil. Spare tire looks really cool but makes the bed unusable. Probably remove it.
2. The noise. V8 SC is simply intoxicating. Can never go back to an Ecoboost
3. Cab comfort, noise level and space is unsurpassed.
4. This thing is massive. Dwarfs my sons Toyota Tacoma Pro

Bad
1. No wireless airplay. UI loads slow. Especially on performance screen.
2. Raptor 10 spd shifts feel better
3. Brakes. This thing needs more whoa to it’s go!
4. Carbon Fiber seems a little cheap
5. Feel like shifter is a little undersized. Might just be personal preference

Nice truck. Why do you say the carbon feels cheap?

Honestly looks and feels plasticy compared to wife’s Audi SQ7 and even my Gen 2 Raptor. Not terrible but think they could have done better

It’s real cf though right? Dry or wet carbon?

Wireless charging, but no wireless CarPlay? That’s ridiculous I really thought it had it

Not until 2022 with Uconnect 5. Supposed to be way better then the current system

I’m assuming you can Bluetooth your music. I can in my 2015 Ram 2500 Megacab. Six years later we’d better be able too or I’m going to be pisses!

Yes you can Bluetooth music, calls etc. You just cannot AirPlay wireless which I prefer. But the dealer has a $150 “fix” apparently which is probably an aftermarket USB adapter. Uconnect 5 will be a big improvement. Also I don’t want to nit pick. This is an amazing truck and Ram knocked it out of the park. Just some small annoyances to address in 2022 I’m sure

So my TRX arrived Thursday but had damage to bumper. Dealer wanted to hold off on delivery but I couldn’t wait! Top impressions

Good
1. Simply looks amazing! Better in person. Especially the Anvil. Spare tire looks really cool but makes the bed unusable. Probably remove it.
2. The noise. V8 SC is simply intoxicating. Can never go back to an Ecoboost
3. Cab comfort, noise level and space is unsurpassed.
4. This thing is massive. Dwarfs my sons Toyota Tacoma Pro

Bad
1. No wireless airplay. UI loads slow. Especially on performance screen.
2. Raptor 10 spd shifts feel better
3. Brakes. This thing needs more whoa to it’s go!
4. Carbon Fiber seems a little cheap
5. Feel like shifter is a little undersized. Might just be personal preference

So my last 5 vehicles have had that ZF transmission, give it 2k miles to break in and learn and I would love to hear what you think after that. The Ford 10 speed always feels lazy to me. The Rubicon I just bought was not great until about 1500-2000 miles.

Congrats. Truck looks happy to be home. Thanks for sharing the feedback.

I believe the TRX carbon is a dry carbon so may look a little less flashy then coated wet carbon. I think its still real carbon tho but could be wrong.

The 10spd Chevy/Ford love child is a POS. Have a 2018 Platinum expedition and I hate that clunky shifting turd.

Anyone who knows anything about performance knows a ZF is king and a DCT is designed to be felt thanks to line pressure doing its job.

Not sure how much bigger brakes you want? 15" is huge. The raptor is a diet coke can on wheels weighing nearly 1klbs less.

I also own a 2020 BMW X7 M50i and if I wanted to drive luxury I'd roll in that. The TRX though is a perfect combination of everything I can ask for.

The carbon in my srt jeep was cheap too. Just a laminate that will pop off with repeated heat cycles. We lemoned it because of this. Reason I didn’t order CF. Definitely not close to exotic car quality

Wonder if it can be replaced with the good coated stuff? Anyone know?

It’s not really wet or dry carbon. It has to do with how they lay it and finish it. I’ve seen some spectacular dry carbon pieces
