What is so significant about the '85 model year? Something wrong with the '86-'93 models?

FWIW I'd actually understand if he said 1980 and older, I do not care for the 81-93 plastic dashboard or squared off body lines compared to the 71-80 trucks.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I love the '70s trucks and can even enjoy the older Sweptline models but I've always loved the '80s bodystyle. I guess growing up with the "Ram Tough" commercials and seeing that Ram hood ornament made an impression on me. There's just something cool about the front end, especially with the gunsight grille, that appeals to me.

Almost bought an old logging truck that looked like that, had a 440 4speed, D60's all around, ancient 33's and the body was literally rusting to the point where you can move the cab up and down without moving the frame or disturbing the truck. Almost worth the $400 the guy wanted for it.

I was able to do the exact same thing with the cab on this truck, all fixed now tho.

Of the 81-93' I really only like the 91-93 grille, unless it is a Rod Hall, THAT is that shit right there.

Same here. Love the 81-93 trucks, have 5 between my dad an I. Not a big fan of 91-93 grills, the 86-90 crosshair grills are my favorite. I keep meaning to find a good one to put in my 85 crew cab.

Only on the D44 equiped trucks. And I wheeled the piss out of my CAD axle on 35s and never broke it. Switched to a non-CAD axle and have broken it a few times now. Course, the switch happened about the time I got a tow rig and trailer and didnt have to worry about driving home anymore

Also, the CAD was actually phased in late in the '84 model year so it's possible to find '84 models with the CAD D44.
