    so today i was walking out of the store to my truck( 03 chevy 2500hd w/ duramax crew cab with a 8'6" mvp on the front) when this guy steps out of his truck ( f-150) and ask's me how i like my plow. i said " really good". then he asks if that plow was to much for my LITTLE truck. i looked back and my truck and asked him what little truck. then he says he has herd bad things about the Chevy with the duramax. i again asked him ,"like what". his reply was that they were way under powered. thanks for wasting 5 min of my life i can never get back!!! :gunsfiring: fricken ford guys..lol

    Thoes Ford guys always put down GM. Deep down inside he really wants one. MOST Ford owners just need something in their life to boost their ego like the F-150 guy. Us GM guys dont need ego boosters and are happy with them. My cousin has a fleet of over 30 F-350's from 2000-2009 and he always puts down my 5 GM's that i rarely have issued with and when i hear his going down the road it sounds like its just crying.

    Why? So we could all be in the same class as strippers?:DBMW----vehicle of choice for exotic dancers.They probably have a different definition than us for a ''PLOW JOB.'' Lol

    Isn't that the strongest engine they put in a truck? Im still waiting for someone to make a real truck. But it would probably cost to much to be realistic. I like my chevy and the ford i had but neither one is really that good imo. I guess a truck will always be a truck and a dozer will be a dozer.

    HA, same guy that goes to home depot and drops a pallet of bricks or 30 sheets of 1/2" drywall in his f-150 because Mike Rowe says he can!

    There is nothing wrong with Ford but there is something wrong with people who think any 1/2 ton is an actual work truck. But there is also nothing wrong with 1/2 tons either, they have their place.......somewhere, I don't know where but I am sure they do. Probably at the car wash or moving matresses I don't know.

    I have been wondering the same thing about 1/2 ton trucks, what good are they ? maybe we are the fools wasting the extra money on 2500 and 3500 trucks

    I had a guy in a tundra with a homesteader tell me he would out plow my 2500hd with a 8'6" V plow. We were parked next to each other you should have seen my plow dawrf his

    Same goes for their 10,000 pound towing capicity. I would love to see somebody with any 1/2 ton truck tow a cat 247 or a T300 day in and day out

    BMW doesn't, but Mercedes does, it's called Unimog. Hard to beat one of those and the N.A domestics don't have a hope in he**, none of them....:)

    Please dont include all ford guys with that one if they stopped making Fords i would buy a Chevy or GMC. You know they are a step up from a Dodge. :laughing::laughing::waving::waving:

    Let's be honest here. As long as you're not plowing with Dodge, you will be just fine. Fords are nice to plow with, as well as Chevys. Each of my trucks have their own little perks. Regardless, the better you equip your truck to plow, the better it will plow. Good luck.

    Six wheel drive, sure it's not a Pinzgauer 712? Don't think there is a Unimog in six wheel drive. Sure it's not one of the other MB lines? Some of their commercial lines had it, but I don't think the Unimog did, can you find out what model? Curious minds want to know. :waving:

    Here's a pic of a Pinzgauer 712, does it look like this:

    You guys picking on Dodges have a lot to learn.

    I've had no problems with mine yet, other than frying the torque converter with 1000 lbs of torque, which can not be blamed on the truck in any manner.

    The Dodge has a real front suspension, unlike the Chevy, so you wont ever see a Dodge guy making a thread about why is the front of his truck dragging on the ground all the time.

    It also has the only medium duty rated diesel of the three. Ford and Chevy diesels are classified as light duty. The Cummins makes more torque at lower RPM's, where it is needed when plowing. This is just one of the reasons why the Cummins gets superior fuel economy.

    I'm not saying Ford or Chevy is bad, but I have have no complaints about my Dodge. Some of you guys just need to stop repeating what you heard from a guy, who knows, a guy, who knows a guy......
