    Upgraded from an 03 2500 with a Hiniker V-Plow to this 05 2500 with a Boss V-Plow. All because I wanted newer, and a 6 speed. :) I'll Post some pics of my inside with my plow and spreader control mount tomorrow.

    Nice rig. The 600 series motor is real nice huh. Biger turbo and such. You will notice a difference in the MPG. I would recomend the smarty jr

    Your left leg is going to get sore. That's one reason I bought my 98. It's an auto. Sweet rig!!

    If you go by the over head it says I get bout 24 on the highway. I haven't hand calculated but every time I fill up it says anywhere between 650-700 on a full tank. Again haven't hand calculated anything yet.

    The overhead is off by leaps and bounds. I'll bet your hand-calculated mileage is closer to 17-19mpg.
