    hey thanks guys!!! The 1500 wasn't to bad but it was a 02 with 92,000 and the trany was starting to slip. It doesn't help the truck is always working either towing the wood chipper 6500lbs + wood in the bed and plow and salter in winter but the trany was the first prob I had with it.

    hey Braaap! niicccee, I love plowing with a diesel, lots more pushing power and less slipping. Good to see things are going well.

    I'm looking into the same truck.

    Which diesel do you have?
    Which plow?
    How many miles?
    How much $?
    From dealer or private guy?

    Thanks and congrats on the upgrade.

    Thanks guys so far I love the truck!!! I will never go back to a gas truck againwesport. As far as the plow goes it was a messed up deal and im stuck with my 760sw for this year:cry: (sold 760sw ordered 860sw went to drop plow off and the guy backed out!!!!) Its the 05 5.9 with 40,000 and it was a southern truck with not a spot of rust and picked it up for 25k
