    let me know how it works out for you. kinda brave getting an 08, first years on all the new diesels were a bit rough from what ive heard.

    ive been looking at the dodge med duty chassis cabs for our new dump, ive found some really good deals on them compared to 450/550's

    i like that they come standard with 7k front axles where you have to be careful to look for that on the fords, not all of them have the 7k.

    some guy on here had trouble with his dodge 5500 overheating while the plow was on and the dealer and chrysler were giving him a hard time about it.

    Not to be a (fill in the blank with your favorite explicative) here, but I would have looked for feedback BEFORE buying the truck.

    wade i know we have been asking you for years but have you had a chance to line up the equip yet? and snap a couple of pics? i am usually not one to ask but what you have shown us you have an impressive fleet just keeps me pushing and knowing that it can be done with hard work and dedication
