    Do you still own this truck or did you get rid of it? What'd replace it with?

    Youve already stated two problems about this truck

    1. Unlesyou plan to keep functional rear doors, the mega cab is fine.
    2. its a Dodge:eek: Oh crap, Im not on the Ford disscusion thread!

    That truck will give you the weight you want, but Ive read alot about cabdoors having issues (not only on PS).

    I dont own one but know few that due. I have a chevys and dodges, no megas. I wanted to get one but with the problems I settled for a quad cab. No problems with quad cabs or regular cabs. Oh yea those issues will not be covered by any warranty or your insurance, customer pay all the way....

    No problems yet except the 1-2-1-2-1-2 shuttle between gears under real light throttle, there is a bulletin, 30k and that is it. If people would stop hitting stuff so hard, I bet most of that stuff everyone is talking about wouldn't happen much. Love mine, doors open perfect, back glass is just fine, looks new still it has worked most of it's life.

    Oh and when the front tires come off the ground when you hook up the 30k trailer, you have too much tongue weight and should pull the tractor back a little until the tires touch again. LOL Oh crap..... I have a two door dump bed now :eek: And you should slow down a little before you ram piles of snow with a 21 ft truck!

    Thanks for the input. I figured some people might just be a little hard on their trucks.

    The only truck I saw the front wheels come off the ground with a load was my uncles Wrecker when him and my dad decided to move a 30 foot Maple tree from the back yard and plant it in the front yard. true story.

    You must have a big tractor to pull the nose on your cummins off the ground

    So - I just bought a Mega cab to plow with only to find out that it is going to end up in a body shop?? Is there something I need to know here? Do these trucks just do this or do you have to try to make them do this?

    Don't know what others are doing to there trucks, but i've heard nothing of this and have had zero problems with doors or back glass.

    I just looked on the Dodge website - doesn't look like the megacab is offered with the plow prep groups.

    Ok, could someone tell me why the creasing of the doors and glass shattering would happen.

    Had mine for 3 snow seasons and not 1 problem. I would love to see some pics of this damage everybody keeps talking about. I am not at all easy on mine 9'6" plow and spreader.

    I have plowed with my mega cab all winter and have had zero problems. I haven't been too rough on it but have hit stuff that has tripped the blade.
