I just picked up a new truck today. Its a '03, 4 door, Ram 2500, 4x4, 345hp 5.7L Hemi, Long bed. I traded in the '01 Quad cab for it and got a great deal.

Now I need a Boss mount for the truck (I was told today that they should be available by months end.)

Good truck:D . We just got in a regular cab, but I haven't had a chance to take it out yet. They sure look tuff.
Congrats on the new Dodge,

I;d be interested in how it pushes a boss. It's got lots of HP, but a little lite in the torque department. I run a V10 less HP but about the same torque as the reg diesel, and it's a great plow truck, if you keep your eye on the trans temp. Does the hemi use the 47RE tranny?

No pictures yet... we will get them soon!

I spent the afternoon putting on tube steps, tinting the windows, and installing the hide away strobes. I ordered the company stickers and front and rear rubber catch all floor mats.

In the near future I am looking to have a spray in liner, and hand painted pinstriping added.

I am eager to see the fuel mileage on this truck. It runs great 2x the light-em up power as my 01 I traded in! Passing gear is impressive!

The tranny is the 545 transmissin out of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is a 5 speed auto which is supposed to help the HEMI's allready improved fuel economy.

This truck is higher in HP and tourque than the 360 gas I had previously (pushed the 9.2 Boss fine then). I immagine it should handle the blade great!

I will keep all of you informed.
