:help: I can't remember where I heard it, but i checked out Dodge's mexico site, and they have a Dodge Ram 4000! Its a basic Cab Chassis truck. I was wondering why this truck isn't being made in the U.S. to keep up with the all the F-450's out there.

DC already has Freightliner and Sterling trucks, why come out with another line of Medium and Heavy duty trucks when it is unnecessary??

Did you get a chance to check out the new Power Wagon?? Hemi, 4.56 gears with lockers front and rear, elect. dis-connect sway bar for rock crawling, 17x8 wheels, etc.

But it too is made in Mexico. :cry:

The Power Wagon is a sharp truck, I am not a Dodge guy, but I wouldn't mind having one. The only thing about it is I'd hate to see the gas bill for a month with it. :cry:

My dad's rollback car hauler is a 2005 Dodge 4500 with six speed auto. They are in limited release and he had to pull some strings to get his hand on one. It has the high output cummins and is an animal.

Does it have split rims? I saw some pics of the Mexican 4500's and they apparently still use them. :confused:

Do you by any chance know what brand of transmission it has? Is it an Allison or something else?

Get us some pictures of that. Their is a Dodge dealership in Chicopee Mass. that has been making their own Dodge 3500 Dumps for the last year. They are dually 4wd and they are asking mid $40's for them

I also work for a dodge dealer the 4500 and 5500 trucks with in the next two years or so but they have been talking about it for a few years now but Dodge is also with Freightliner so they are in no hurry.

They have had a heavier than 3500 series truck in Mexico for several years, as far back as the mid 90's, maybe even earlier.

I'm sure it's not an Allison. Most likely a 48RE.

Yes. Same here, I am not a big fan of Chrysler either back in the days, it left a bad taste in my mouth with their cheaply disigned Reliant K. But however I like the looks of the New dodge trucks. :blob3:
