    Its not only going to be a plow truck, its going to tow my mowing trailer, but why not put a new plow on it too..
    2014 2500 Ram Tradesman with the 6.4, pretty basic, just what I want. Cycling out two older trucks to get this one, gives me two dodges in my little fleet.
    getting a 8.5' XV2 installed. Cant wait to take ownership of this thing on monday!
    I love my 3500 and i never thought id be a Ram guy.

    i only put 100 miles on it, i had to go pick it up as a dealer swap (my wifes family owns the dealership I'm getting it from) but climbing through the mountains to get home with no miles on it, it showed 14.0 mpg average… and it had no issue climbing the hills empty
    gonna be hard to compare against my other dodge with the 5.7 due to the other dodge being such a big truck (3500 chassis cab with 8.5' dump box)
    This truck is going to be my main mowing trailer tower, unless i need to pick up grass

    Nice truck. The white is a good color for keeping it clean.

    Picked it up today, and have to drop it back off to have my 8.5 XV2 installed tomorrow night. I was going to bring it home and install it myself, then they told me it was only $150 difference… its not worth the hassle for 150. Hope we get some snow by the end of the week so i can play with it!
