    Here is my 97 Ram 2500 I just bought. Its only got 79k original miles on her. After I sold my plow truck in the beginning of the season I swore I was done with plowing. I was looking to replace her with an older pick up for home depot runs and going on the beach... Then I found this... I had to have it.. And it just so happened to come with a Meyer... Love the V10...

    Thanks guys... Yes its factory. I have the original window sticker of the truck but I cant remember the exact two tone color combo they called it...

    She is very clean. I love driving her compared to my 89 w250 she replaced. I just hope the V10 proves reliable and the tranny holds up...

    When I took the photo the blade was still at my house. When I got the truck the slik stik needed to be replaced. I replaced it the other night and it works like a champ. The blade looks brand new. Its just a 7.5 Meyer ST but it does the job...

    I hope we get a storm Tuesday cause I want to see how the V10 pushes...

    Real nice ride. Gotta love the the second gen. style. I also run for the "crooks" with a 2000, 3500 dump. Live in Shirley, work out of the Mastic yard. Good luck with the truck!
