    That's a great decision IMO. My uncle has a 2003 Dodge 2500 with a 8' Boss Trip Edge and it plows wicked good. He is going to buy somthing newer with in a year or so, probly another Dodge 2500.

    the only good thing about payments is you wont be lazy... its like an alarm clock. you have to get up and work to make the payment. take care of it an 10 years later it will still be a great truck.

    those new 6.7's like to be worked.

    I expected worse, thats good for a Hemi in a 3/4 ton. Got a friend wit same body configuration, believe and 05 and he gets 10 if he's lucky! Nice truck!!!

    I'm pretty sure it's gas. Id guess that truck with the Cummins in it would have been way out of his price range.

    thats a nice truck - but a kid right out of high school dropping that kind of money and getting into those big payments on a brand new truck? you’re better off than I was at that age, or maybe not as afraid of debt as I am. anyone would love a brand new truck, but sometimes you gotta deprive yourself of the really nice stuff early on, no matter how much you love it. but if you can swing it, more power to you. good luck with it and take good care of it.

    I'm averaging 16mpg in mine. Show me a gas 3/4 ton getting better mpgs- they are all about the same.

    Nice rig, it'll make you work for it!

    Wow, thats good milage. I was considering one at one point. hows your tranny in that years. I take it much better than the previous? and is it the same tranny in the 1500s mated to the Hemi, or a different one? Thanks and nice looking rig!!
