    I love the plow. I'd like to paint it or at least touch it up. Any suggestions?

    Another angle. I have lights on the back rack as well as under the rear bumper near the hitch. Haven't finished wiring the ones up top yet. Still have to feed them to a toggle in the dash.

    Here's where I mounted the control. I like the position, right near the gear shift selector. I did play with the idea of putting it on the door panel next to the lock/window buttons, but the right side felt better.

    I'm going to mount the toggle for the rear lights next to the over drive button

    Thanks

    I actually just test drove a 2002 Dodge Ram. Felt like I was driving a toy, and they look very plasticy, kinda like a saturn. Don't get me wrong, I love em, but the older style just looks meaner and beefier

    I agree, looked at one at the state fair. The interior is nothing but cheap plastic.

    I also agree. I love my 97' RAM 1500. I am getting a new truck next year, but it's going to be an F-350.

    It looks like that's what is reads. I just rolled 130K on my Dodge RAM with the 318. I have never had any trouble with it other than a waterpump this past summer. Still burns as clean as it ever did.

    I have 2 98 Jeep Grand Cherokees Limiteds. 1 with the 318 and 1 with a 360. I have had nothing but trouble with both of them. the 318 only has 58k on it while the 360 has 102k. guess we got a couple of bad apples!

    It's actually 145k guys. Its been a great truck, had it 5 years now. No major problems, just the little stuff that wears out. I did, however, have to change the water pump too. Did it myself with a reworked pump, saved a few hundo. Tranny slips and hesitates at times, but what do you expect with 145k + miles.

    Plowing went great tonight, it was my first full night on my own.
