    NICE Truck! Of course, I may have a biased opinion. That will make a great plow truck, I know mine has served me well. What plow are you gonna hang on it? I have a set of Timbrens on mine, definately consider them. You already have plenty of weight on the front end, and they help alot.

    Oh BTW. Get yourself an Airdog liftpump for it. That is, only if you wanna keep your injector pump alive and well. Go over to CumminsForum, and check them out. There are other liftpumps, but, I like the Airdog 150.

    It's not the injectors that are loud.

    Thats a great looking truck. My suggestion would be to get a fuel pressure gauge along with the AirDog. If the fuel pump goes out, it can take the vp44 with it, and that gets real expensive. If the fuel pressure goes below 5, you are in the danger zone. Enjoy.

    You are right JD. I forgot to mention that. I put in a fuel pressure gauge in at the same time as the Airdog. I am never below 15 psi with my Airdog.

    Its when the fuel atomizes or com busts from the injector spraying the fuel in? In any case its a nice truck and the engines are loud.

    I stole it at $9500, it has every option available in that year! Im no stranger to cummins, I have a 2003 with 225,000 miles on it, and it is unstoppable, still havent come across a challenge it could not handle. This new one is spotless, underneath the truck looks brand new as well. Hate to put a plow on it really

    Still deciding on a plow, I have a 9 foot ultra mount straight blade already that I may put on it. Anybody have any experience with Hinikers?

    I have a Hiniker 8 1/2' poly V on mine. I only used it a couple times last season. It will get a workout this year, I hope!

    Man you did steal that, good find. I love the look of the sport editions. Is it an auto or a 6 speed?
