Though it is subjective, I wouldn't say "on another level"..."on the same level" would be more accurate IMO.

FWIW, went to 1921 Seafood in Houma last weekend with my family and my dad ordered some boiled crabs. They were without a doubt the biggest crabs I've ever seen...they were nearly the same size as my mom's dungeness. Asked the owner and he said they came out of Montegut; so I'd go there. ...

Not super recent, but I bought my 2011 Ram 1500 in Dec. of 2010...sticker was $38,130 and I was out the door after TT&L for around $36,000. So, I didn't get much of a deal :lol:...b...

Ford offers a 3.6(?) liter V6 standard with the Ecoboost and 5.0 V8 optional. The Ecoboost is considered premium out of the three = $$$.
