Hi Rick,

The jeep fits the European model - smaller.

The big Ram is a North American niche truck. The newest version is gorgeous - especially the interior.

If tariffs ever hit, an all american car builder would win out domestically.

In Europe, North American trucks get clobbered with brutally unfair tariffs.

If equal tariffs, Ram would benefit first with largest dealer body.

It would eb good to see equal tariffs.

I think it would hurt Mercedes/ Land Rover and their SUV's. Trucks would gain market share from expensive sedans. Chrysler really does not have a top of the line SUV. Their trucks might find a home in Mercedes Benz and Land Rover dealerships.

Big change for sure.

I don't think Ram could be sold to Ford or GM due to antitrust reasons?

Consolidation on a global basis is a smart move for gaining scale.

Toyota,and Nissan would gain a work truck, Honda, Mitsubishi, Subaru a truck???

Big bucks , but money is cheap these days.
