    Very nice. Dodge did a great job with the look of their trucks. I hated them a while back but now they look a lot better. I currently hate the way the Fords look.

    Got a similiar one

    I purchased a similar looking dodge except it had the metalic silver exterior and chrome cab steps, and dodge mud flaps. I talked to a few Boss plow dealers and they told me I could put a 8'2" poly power V plow on no problem. They put one on and it doesn't sag much at all. I even talked to the Dodge dealer and they said it doesn't void the warranty. Can't wait till winter to try out the new toy.

    Great looking truck. I, too, considered the Dodges, but I couldn't pass up the deal I got on my F250. Also, I agree, I don't care for the way the new 05's look, either. I think they are kinda ugly.

    ne dodges

    I just purchased an 05 Cummins dodge. I traded in a 94 Cummins dodge. The engineering on this rig is much better than the old one. This one has some real brakes, quiet, POWER and the u joints on the front differential are huge! Less electrical wiring also this means less chance of corrosion causing an electrical problem. Engine compartment is more open easier to service engine. But they still have the fuel filter in a hard to get place. But they did change the filter to a easier to maintain type.

    This truck has no vacuum on it either. All electric. The vacuum pump on the 94 cost $2000 to replace. Yes that is not a typo. And that is just for the pump no labor!

    My kids just got a hemi dodge I will see how that runs. Maybe we can have some friendly competition!.. I can see it now... father and daughter arrested for drag racing in Akron!....

    Purchased a C8 Meyer. Will install it soon and should be "good to go"
