I havn't started pricing yet. I want a 2500 SLT 4x4 Crewcab with a Hemi. I've never seen one on a lot in my area and only a couple on EBay. I wonder what I can buy one for. I've seen a couple similar to what I want on EBay for $32-33K (buy it now price).

Congrats! Sweet truck for sure!

It used to be that Dodge had the golden diesel engine wrapped in a turd of a truck, Now they have the full package! The best diesel and a fantastic truck inside and out

i agree with the OP out of the big 3, the ram is the most confident truck, the king ranch is a close second, but im not a fan of the power joke over the cummins...cummins is hands down, the best in a consumer truck. as for the gmc/chevys, theyre freakin ugly, the interior is a beat and all plastic... plain and nasty IMO, the outside looks like a big ass bubble shaped ufo for lack of a better anology. i used to be a die hard gm guy, but im over that, everytime i worked that pig or took it off the pavement something broke. POS...dodges are just plain sexy anyway.


dodge is #1
ford is #2

toyota, nissan, and general motors can stay existant for the wives to drive, although, my wife would be in a mopar if she wanted a truck

Picasso,

I bought the 3500 Longhorn 4x4 SRW SB version. One thing I'm going to advise you on is DETERMINE WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO USE THE TRUCK FOR AFTER YOU BUY IT!!!

If you are planning on towing, really look at the specs. I'm now in a situation where I wish I had done more research.
Check out the thread I started yesterday in the 4th Generation Dodge Ram Towing Forum. here http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread....005#post800005 I am finding out now that my truck will not tow what I want it to.

If your looking to pull weight, ensure you get the 4.10 dif if your sticking to the SRW model or go with a dually. If your going to be pulling LOTS of weight, Long Box Dually!!!

Other than than, I love the truck, handles great, fantastic ride and the extra... eww/ahhh! Love that heated steering wheel and seats in the cold weather here in Canada and the Grandkids love watching videos during trips.

Sound system is great, and I love the 2 position seat memory on the drivers' side. tilting rear mirrors come in handy and the back up assist works like a charm.

Ride is quite, compared to other diesels I've driven, and she always seems to deliver the power I need when I press the pedal.

JUST DO THE RESEARCH IF YOU INTEND TO TOW!!!


Regards and good luck...

Pte Jack
