ya true that, they have an over night one here that is about 1500, thing is what is the truck cost added to that, the pump, the extra insurance, the distance you can get etc. By the time you paid all that extra off, you truck is 10 years old. I was just saying be cool. I had also seen a propane Ram

That looked interesting:

Isn't there a system available to convert a diesel to propane? Thought I saw something about a year ago that helped convert Diesel trucks into propane burners instead.

You don't convert diesel to propane, you suppliment the diesel with propane, I saw it too, it was one of the truck shows, they installed a propane tank under the truck and injected it with the diesel, kind of like nitrous

is driving a truck that towers over many vehicles on the road safe?

is driving a lowered vehicle safe?

or how about nitrous....?

considering we have semis running much worse things around, a few propane tanks under a diesel truck that creates a small powerplant under the hood is of little concern to me lol

alot of the time theyll mount inside the bed, or under a back seat.

Anyways, sorry for the highjack there Matt.

I have been seeing these trucks all over by my house. They also have them for the dodge mini van.

Chrysler is in partnership with Roush on this.

I dont see that big of an issue....but just asking.
It is a propane tank, I mean its no different than a BBQ tank, Im assuming (but I maybe wrong here). It is still explosive under impact or improper use, hence my question
