    Now I just need enough snow to push. I'm sure we'll get our share soon enough!

    So jealous! Any reason you went 6.0 vs 6.6 diesel? Just cost? What did you pay for that truck if you don't mind me asking?

    Please don't tell up you're going to plow snow with that sharp looking rig of yours!!!

    I don't do a lot of heavy towing, and the $9.000 extra for the diesel and trans is very hard to swallow, considering the rest of the parts will still wear out at the same rate. Fuel is more expensive, and so is the upkeep. I ordered it, sticker was $49,000, without plow.

    I hope I can! It is my truck, and I won't let any of my guys plow with it. That way if it gets hurt, it's all on me. I'm hoping the reverse camera and sensors help if they don't get blocked by snow.

    So far around 10, mix of highway and city. Best trip was 16, highway trip at 55mph. I don't even want to look while plowing.
    The gas 3500's only are available with 4:10 gears, so that doesn't help.
