    I do need to get some tow mirrors. On top of the cap I installed a luggage rack, with plans to build a small cargo box and install some off-road lighting on it.

    I've been driving my dodge for 2 years now, but this was my other truck that I plowed with last year. An 86 chevy 2500, needless to say I'm excited about the upgrade

    I didnt, it was titled as 86, thats how how I bought it. The previous owner was a car shop, they may have done one

    Sweet upgrade.

    I went from a 1988 and a 1989 GMC's to a 98 Dodge 5 years ago.

    You will love the Dodge. Just make sure you take care of the tranny. 3 rebuilds on mine in 6 years. :realmad:

    I am back in a 2004 GM this year. Am hoping to keep the Dodge as my back-up tho.

    Make complete stops before shifting. Adjust the bands at every oil change. Change the fluid and upgrade the tranny cooler. Watch your temps.

    Oh yeah, in the mornings let it idle/warm up with the truck in Neutral (with the ebrake on of course). It will cycle the tranny fluid so you don't run the tranny dry/cold.

    I had a 1989 Chevy 2500 with an 8' Fisher. It plowed realy good. How did you like yours?

    Thats some good advice! Thanks guys!
    The Chevy did a pretty good job for what it was, but it had a rough life. Personally I can not wait to push some snow with my Dodge..that V10 is gonna be great until I have to fill up. haha
