    it's a 2007 Dodge Laramie 3500 SRW 4x4 Mega Cab with the 6.7L Cummins and 6 speed Auto. Got it loaded, leather with heated seats and all the rest of the toys! Can't wait to get it home and tricked out with the plow, tube steps, bed rug and cap!

    I'm not quite sure I have three to pick from?

    I have a Meyer 8 ' MDII with everything I'll need. and its like new

    I have a line on a 9' Diamond with MDII set-up, its like new.

    or I have a 8' Fisher that I'm rebuilding right now , but I'll have to get a set of mounts and underhood stuff.

    I'm leaning toward the 9' Diamond right now.

    It was the EXACT truck I wanted and I saved over $5K from the next lowest price I got!

    For anyone who wants a Dodge, I'd suggest you check out Dave Smith Dodge, they are the worlds largest Dodge dealer and their speciality is internet sales, I have found that they are the worlds largest for a reason, NO BS! get right to the bottom line price, which blew every other dealer away!

    No Plow for the New Mega Cab!

    Hi

    After long and careful thought I decided not to put a plow on this truck.

    What I decided to do is to buy another truck, I purchased a 87 Dakota long bed 4x4 with a 7' Western plow. The truck has only 60k miles on it and in very good shape, no rust, and very straight! Plow is also in pretty good shape, lift will need a little work, but the Iron is straight.

    When I get it home I'll post a few pictures.

    Plan on keeping the Mega Cab in the nice dry heated garage in the winter away from the Salt Mites! lol

    This is my new to me plow truck, its a1987 Dodge Dakaota with only 60,000 original miles, bought it from the original owner who had the 7' Western plow installed on it when it was new. I have to redo the brakes and exhaust system and some minor touch up, should allow me to save the new truck.

    Yup!

    the guy who owned it was a real nice old timer, very honest and original owner! truck was never molested, pretty much as he purchased other than the plow. It sat in my back yard for two weeks while I was away on vacation, I jumped in it so i could mow the grass, pumped it twice and fired right up! I can't wait until this winter, should be a lot easier to manuever this than the Excursion or the new Mega Cab, only thing is it's not going to be a a brute like the Ex with the power stroke, oh well I guess that's what low range is for! lol
