2003-2500 or 3500 v-10

I went to a different dealer and they had a cummins quad cab in my choice of color, flame red! It was a single rear wheel 3500 quad cab 4x4 but it was a strip model, manual windows. I am thinking of possibly a 3500 if its not to much more since I at times do overload my 2500 in which twice I had 3500 pounds of scrap iron and motor blocks loaded up. I'll check a couple dealers to see whats the average price and go from there... I'll probaly have to order one so it will take about 6 weeks.

Re: 2003-2500 or 3500 v-10

After having this truck (one ton Ford diesel) I'll probably never go back to a smaller gas truck as a primary vehicle. With this truck I never have to worry about things like that. If it's something that this truck cant handle I dont want to be yanking it around anyway, it's a job for the big boys. The only regret I had is not getting a dually. It wont raise you towing/hauling copasity (it actually lowers it) but the extra stabalization would be awesome. When you load down a single rear wheel truck with a good load they tend to get a bit squirly. Espesialy in high winds.

I drove past a Dodge dealer today and fell in love. There was a red sport and a black sport sitting right next to each other. Both 4x4 "crew cab" [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] long bed duallies loaded with options (or so the windows said) but I was afraid to stop and look at the price [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I went with a quad cab dually not gonna do any thing to extreme to it. just leave it alone make it my tow vehicle....which i might be selling Big_DD i had a guy offer me a ton of money for it the way it sits, so i might be building a rock crawler/sand rail instead of rebuilding Big_DD i have not decided yet, i told the guy i would let him know monday if he had a deal. to quote the guy "I would love to buy that truck from you I have some great ideas for it," I met the guy at a local car show...SO i dont know what i am going to do.......until more info....Big_DD...i might have to be changing my name [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: 2003-2500 or 3500 v-10

Well seems like there is no v-10 quad cab single rear wheel 3500's available according to the dealer computer. I guess they are only using the diesels and hemi motors for that application. I got a price of $32,000 for a 2003 2500 v-10 quad cab slt sport. A little higher price than the 2002 I was looking at. Sorry big dd, the $5000 more price for the diesel is too much for me to justify escepially having almost 3 children, 3rd due in november! I'm hoping for a very snowy winters to help pay for the truck, i've made $10,000 over the past 5 years plowing with the 95 ram, thats 1/2 of what i've paid for the truck and that wasn't any real bad winters! I make only $42 an hour for the state of mass plowing but if I got a 6 wheeler it would be $68 :-)
but haven't tried looking for one. Wife would kill me if I bring home another toy, last one was an 89 jeep wrangler that I blew the rear axle out of from jumping it too high and now its just sitting there for the last month.
