    Just need the blade to make her official. Nice looking rig. Peterbuilt fan I see. I'm a Kenworth man myself, but there is nothing like a chromed out long nose Pete I'll give you that.

    i want the tow mirrors...but the ones on now actually have a lot of viewing area

    i'm not putting a plow on it..no need to, i plow part time for the township....actually just got home

    and Peterbilt fan...you could say that...i drive a Pete 378 and a 340 for my other job at an excavating company when i am not in school

    i just have to drive this long thing around the streets of a busy town with small parking spaces for 5 months until i graduate, i wasn't planning on buying one now but this great deal came along on the exact truck i want

    Turbo....how do you check hours on this thing?

    After you get over how ugly the interior is you will love the truck. I have the towing mirrors and have never used them.

    i love the interior....theres more storage space in this truck then i have seen in any other truck, the seat is nice...a good high ride to it..the only problem was there wasn't a whole lot of options where i would mount my brake controller

    That is true but I still cant get over the dash. It is all plastic and flat, GM and Ford have a nicer interior but dodge takes the cake in everything else

    If you compare 2006 Ford Dodge Chevy interiors. In the SLT Lt2 and XLT packages. By far Dodghe is the nicest. Chevy's talk about cheap plastic crap!!!! Ford has a rock hard bench seat and I think they only offer one color that gray. Dodge has a roomier interior and nicer options offered like a GPS system. Yes i will agree a King Ranch truck has a nice interior. But its stickered around 55k with a diesel.

    very nice truck youll love it :drinkup: those stock mirrors are ok but once you use the trailer tow mirrows the regular ones look tiny, and to check the hours i think you cycle the ignition on and off while holding your trip thingy ;)

    Long box Eh !!!! These trucks are simpilly amazing!!! Hook up the largest trailer you can find get on the freeway and set the cruise. All you will hear is the turbo spooling plus your cheeks will hurt from the smile on your face.

    Delete the muffler, remove the silencer ring and gut the tube.....the options are endless!!!
