Manages the CEO's CFO's and the chief marketing officers a win home. They thought that's it. We're done with Chicago auto show. We've done all Pau. We've introduced fabulous new product. And we've shown everybody. How amazing we are. And what amazing things we can do little did Jim Morrison? No that I was going to steal his Sunday back to talk about the new ram trucks. Hey, jim. I'm good. You thought it was over. But it's not. There's lots of excitement from what went on in Chicago and have to keep that going here this weekend. So it seems to be the Chuck company is a really rampant. It up is like this. Did you guys just trying to outdo each other? And I'm seeing things I didn't expect to see first of all let's talk about that new tailgate that you announce to the Chicago auto show. I don't think there's ever been a tailgate split sixty forty and swings open has there on a truck that had. No, we call it the the ram multi-function tailgate. And you know, it's one of those things that when you spend a lot of time putting things in your truck. You're always trying to think of how to make it a little bit better and ceramics air short pulled it off with this new multifunction tailgate. So it works like a normal tailgate would drops down. Stanford feature drops down nearly normal tailgate does two thousand pounds you can drive onto onto it. Whatever you need to do. And then or if you want to you can open it up like barn doors with sixty forty now that's a great way to access your bid. If you've got a big trailer on the back or if you just want to jump back up. Into it. There's a nice little step, and it makes it really easy to get in and out of the bed now with new ram multifunction tailgate you use these trucks for real life from what I made me smile. An awful lot is given really real life examples when you're out on your farm having to load hay bales in the bag. You know, no longer have to drag him over the tailgate. That was exactly my weekend last weekend to move some. Hey from one side of the farm to the other because of this crazy weather we've had here in Michigan. It's nice to be able to have that extra two feet. You don't have to lift over, you know, Bill Hayes only sixty seventy pounds. But you know, you do it ten times it's nice to be able to slow at the back and not have to lift over. So that's one of the solutions that people can tailgate helps you survive with a little bit about the enjoyable -ness of this tailgate coming to market because we had a lot of people get excited about it. How long are they going to have to wait? And is it going to be a an expensive option or is it going to be a reasonable option? You don't really quite reasonable nine ninety five for the gate and for the. Multifunction tailgate and we can get it on every trim. So from tradesman right on through until warns unlimited. It's it's really easy to access that way nine ninety five throat in your monthly payment or release which is really good one of them from our dealers starting in about three weeks, we expect them to be at dealerships in Q two, and but the customers can Glendower dealerships, we know within just under three weeks and place in order for a new one. So my producer for Fox Sports. Stacey went and bought a ram truck yesterday at a dealer in Minneapolis. If she wants to fit one as she can have to wait for order of the truck or she going to have to she'd have to go and swap it out for another truck. Will you be able to retrofit to existing two thousand eighteen nineteen months there were workout solution? I don't know what it's going to be like to be honest because there's some some reinforcements that happened in the in the box itself. I'm sure we'll be able to. But we're still working on that solution to tell you exactly when an hour to get back. All right. Well, a lot of people who have ram trucks and love them dearly would like to make sure they can add that to that truck. Let's talk a little bit about the other big news that you had so coming out of Detroit, we had a new twenty five hundred big truck for you best in class towing when you announced it the competition stepped out with two of their new trucks, heavy duty trucks, but you didn't leave it at just having the twenty five hundred in Detroit.
