I am looking to get a new 2012 Ram. Found a couple that I am liking. I noticed no programming support for the 2011 & 2012 yet. Has anyone who has purchased a 2012 been disappointed with it from a performance standpoint. I don't want to trade up and lose the fun I have with it know. Any input would be appreciated

From what I've seen they are fun rides. The 390HP makes it fun even stock.. It's just a matter of time before someone will have a programmer for them too. They ride is great. I love all the options the Laramie's have...2012 they put the cruise back on the steering wheel and eliminated that extra lever...which I still haven't gotten use to.

Thanks Rancher. I have just developed some doubts that may be unwarrented. The day to day 'Truck' part does not concern me as I am sure it will be as capable as the the 3 I have owned prior. My concern is the end of day, first at a stop light, with a turbo diesel/ricer/5.0/Tundra, who desparately needs their behind spanked by a Hemi. Its alwasys good to end the day with a smile.

I haven't ran anybody in mine yet. But it is definitely fun, even stock. It feels a little more powerful than my last one with the exhaust, CAI, and Superchips. The ride quality alone is worth the upgrade. This 4x4 is way better than the 2wd I had previously. Not to mention all the options you can get on even an ST. I can't imagine a fully loaded Laramie...maybe someday.

The more I drive it the more I love the 2012 Ram. The ride is much smoother,gas mileage is better and the driving will put a smile on your face that will take time to remove that smile from your face,,how much time I don"t know,,still smiling

The only issue I have with my 2012 Longhorn is that it isn't a 2013. I have almost 40,000 Kms with ZERO problems. Ride, handling and comfort are all better than the 2010 QC Laramie.

Get one! I love my sport, couldn't tell you about the gas..I stay on the pedal but it's a great truck...even stock. If you go 2wd you gotta drop it!
