    that 07 is the best cummins ever! i was trying to find one like that when we were looking for a new truck,

    my dad used to have an old w350 beast! it ran an aux hydro pump off a belt off the motor, he said that thing had so much power on the blade.

    thanks for the comments . i had a 01 dodge cummins 6 speed with a 8ft fisher and really liked it but once i heard about all the emmsions stuff i went out and bought the last of the 5.9. this one is one of the last 5.9 made because its build date is december 06 and they switched to the 6.7 the 1st of the year. im hoping it will be worth something someday :rolleyes: i also had a 84 w-250 with the hyd pump off the motor, it was great, just rev the motor up a bit and the plow ripped right along

    can i see some more pictures of that 2007 with the blade and/or with out. Im looking to get a dodge and just would like to see what they look like with blades. How well does it push snow and hold up to the abuse and plow? Looks great.. gotta love the cummins!

    look in the storm pics section i have some pics posted up there. as the truck goes its been great. its only got about 21k miles but no problems. the truck plows great. i have about 1000 lbs against the tailgate and never really had any traction issues. the truck squats about 1 inch with the plow on.

    Nice Dodges, one question though how high is your curtis when it is raised up?

    about 12- 13 inches. we have some steep drives so we cant really put it up any higher.. its a nice plow the only thing that is aggravating is the main plug comes loose when your back blading :gunsfiring:

    isn't there like 3 different places where you can hook the chain to the bottom of the plow? maybe that will help if you havn't tried it. :confused:

    Are all of those figures from the overhead display? I wouldn't trust them at all, mine are always high. Hand calculated mileage is the only way to know for sure.:cool:
