    If you own a ranch and have to haul hay like they do in every other truck commercial then it's always a good time to buy a pickup. Or if you are building a sky-scraper (the remaining half of the commercials) any of the full sized trucks would work for you. Boy, good thing that half of us are ranchers and the other half are construction workers.

    This is a horrible Time for any pickup truck, and especially for that macho caricature, the Ram.
    Not only do SERIOUS Truck buyers (those that need it in the CONSTRUCTION Industry) do not need one now, due to the huge slump in new home building,
    most of the FRIVOLOUS Buyers cannot afford it, even if it becomes 50% more fuel efficient, since this will merely mean 15 MPG from 10 MPG, and people need 30 and 40 and even 50 MPG!!!
    In addition, Trucks and large SUVs are automotively illiterate, and Auto enthusiast magazines said so for years, until they were blue in the face, but $1 and $2 gas made auto illiterates return to the showroom for more of them. BUT NO MORE, and that's a HUGE RELIEF for all the rest of us!

    Sarah,
    Umm, can you explain why you think this could be a perfect time for a new Ram? I don't know where you're going with this statement.

    This year could be a perfect time for new 2009 Dodge Ram. The fall from 11 to 9 percent is a bad part of it, and since they said there’s only a little chance of a recovery.. well, let's just see.

    ~~Well it's about TIME!.
    ** DODGE **! was the only true light truck maker in all of North America.
    Until ! ; some wiseguys, decided the only way to rule the roost,
    ~~Was with deceptive , lookalike , masquerade, tactics.
    Some where in this short, story, there is good news.
    The American, consumer, still nows *work&"" VALUE"" for there time and dollars.
    Chevrolet{GMC} , Ford, where never reliable, just very cheap & inexpensive, with very [low]cost replacement parts,{from cannibalizing wrecks-no doubt}.
    With the ** Dodge ** you never cheated yourself out of a days pay, This can not be said of Chevy ,Ford nor GMC.
