Editor’s Note: With a focus on the new 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and other exciting editions to the lineup, it’s nice to know that the new Ram Trucks belong to the same heritage of long-lasting dependability that drivers have come to respect and rely on. Nothing provides more peace of mind than knowing your new vehicle is bound to stand the test of time. So, we thought, why not look back at the Guts & Glory that lives in all Ram Trucks? From the RamZone Archives, August 26, 2011: Old Ram Trucks Never Die, They Just Keep Working!
Owning Ram trucks has become a generational legacy for Mike Forester of Honey Creek Excavating & Logging—a timber company in Oregon. Like his father, and his father before him, Mike’s chosen a Ram Truck to be the vehicle dependable enough to support his livelihood. Granddad started using Dodge Power Wagons back in the ’60s, and the family has since continued to choose Ram Trucks. Mike bought his first Ram Truck in 1986 and credits his ’98 2500 Cummins Turbo Diesel with the capability to power through his tough and demanding work, sometimes pulling up to 10,000 pounds! Thanks for sharing your story with us, Mike.
