Default My Dodge is the best pickup for Montana

Hi all,

Newbie here from Montana and I just wanted to introduce myself. I live in SW Montana and love my Dodge. It's a 2001 1500 extended cab Laramie XLT. It is perfect for my lifestyle. It has enough features to make it a very nice truck, but it doesn't sacrifice any of the things we need our pickups for. I was worried about the 318 when I first got it because I thought it might not have enough power. I discovered that you just have to make sure you use the O/D switch properly. Those that don't, usually end up having tranny problems or complain about the lack of power. I went with the auto because I have Multiple Sclerosis and sometimes my legs aren't up to a lot of clutch work. It is very dependable and if something happens to go wrong, it's easier to fix than any of the competitor's models of the same years.

Anyways, I look forward to visiting with you on the forum.

I hope the rumors about the Dodge/GM merger aren't true, and, if they are, that the Dodge pickups will keep their tradition of excellence.

Thanks all! I have a feeling I'll be spending quite a bit of time here. I'll have to look on the 'puter and see if I have any pics. Most of the mods so far have been convienience mods like improved sound and custom wiring for the lights to give me pretty much any light combination I want. )If you ever do this, don't run both high and low beams together. The bulbs will heat up too much and burn out) but it is handy to have if you only use it a couple seconds at a time. I also have the option of disabling the daytime running lights. I usually only use this in heavy snow storms when the white light is reflecting on the snow too much or when I am pulling into the driveway and don't want to wake the family with the lights in shining in the window. I also have added some stuff to help with towing. Better brake pads are a must on these if you tow at all.

I'm just starting with performance mods. Exhaust and intake will come first and then probably a tuner.

Nice to meet you all!

Bull bars look real Macho!
I would put bull bars on my Ram if I could afford them. We have far more chances of hitting a deer up here, than another vehicle.
