    I just saw this truck listed in a news article and I'm not sure what to think, it doesn't look all that bad ... but "man of steel"? Is that a bit over the top?

    How big is the market for people that want to tie together this many different aspects of their hobbies and interests into their vehicle. Also, will it make it hard to sell with a big "S" as the front badge?

    ehh... I like the colors and the design looks decent enough, but I'm pretty sure I would not buy a truck with the superman logo on it. Just my $0.02 on the subject.

    I think it looks pretty good, but I'm not a superman fan to where I would want to do that.

    LOVE the color combo with the red grille accent. Like Steve, I don't like the superman logo all over the place.

    Honestly, the RAM truck design is really growing on me. A few people I know have them and they look really good (especially the rounded wheel wells). Guess I'm just still dissapointed in the even "boxyer" wheel wells on the 2014 'Rado.

    I like the color combination and the wheels, but it needs a Duramax and an Alison in under the hood..... or a Cummins and an Allison with GMC or Chevy logo's and I might buy one.

    I agree, the truck looks great, but that's a little bit on the weaksauce-side to have the superman logo on the front of your grill.

    unless you're shaq I guess. He had a custom Cadillac Escalade with the Superman logo everywhere.

    Not something I would trade my truck for, but I dig it. Maybe the emblems would look less out of place if they were smaller and more towards the bottom corners of the doors and tailgate.

    A friend who's always been a d*dge guy just picked up a 2010 and I have to say it was pretty darn nice up close.

    Personaly the big S everywhere isnt my thing either but I've seen some weird offerings that people are willing to spend big bucks for.
    Visit an auto auction sometime and I garantee you'll find a couple vehicles with some sort of obnoxious personal touch and theres always someone in the crowd willing to bid top dollar.

    Looks like something that will eventually be considered one of those "rare" collector vehicles.....
