I was at the Auto Show in Boston last night and they had one of the mega cabs, what a nice truck. THey had a beautiful woman talking about it, and she actually did have some info on the truck. She was from corporate and said that the truck now only comes with the 6' bed, but Oct of next year the mega cab will be for sale with the 8 ft bed. It will be debuted at the various shows starting in January. What an awesome truck. SHe had a book that had all of Dodge prices in it and she said I could buy the 6' bed truck, 3500 dually w/ Cummins motor, SLT package for $42K. I think I may actually go look at one. But it is a serious truck with a lot of room! Line up behind me.

glad to here that dodge has come to relize that people who buy trucks might actually want a bed that can actually hold stuff which is what a truck is supposed to do. not hold people!

The dealer here have a handful on the lots. I have seen maybe a dozen or so on the road, a couple Mega Cab Cummins too :) I'm guessing they want to move out the 05's before we start to see more 06's on the lots.

I don't understand. The mega-cab is a short box with more cab room. If you want box length buy the standard cab or quad cab with 8' box. Dodge has always had one available, not to mention them being the inventor of the extended cab. Certainly not the best appearing bodies for many years but the ideas were there.

The reason your not looking back is cause us Dodge boys are out in front of you. We are the ones looking back while your trying to keep up.:cool2: But if thats what you LIKE than thats fine with me.

The 1/2 ton 4x4 Mega will get an 8 lug 3/4 ton solid axle front and rear. Thats the AAM 9.25 axle, the same as the 2500HD.

I know but that is the link name/address, I did not choose it nor can I change it. The one that won is the same truck I have.

quick tip If you are buying a Gas powered truck Buy the Mega Cab in a 1500 because it is built on the 2500 chassis, but not avalible in diesel at 1500. this means a real price hike in the 2500 diesel. If I had money for a NICE truck Id buy it, I own 7 dodge/chrysler products so i like em a little.

that is a normal chevy answer. hahah I kid, but that will have alot to do with it. just check out Diesel Power (i think that is the mag) they had a shoot out and chevy finished last ford and dodge kinda split cause the ford was like $9k more expensive and relativly simple results I think that was like july or Aug.
as far as this
Yep, their on the lots around here too. Funny thing I havn't seen a single new 06 Dodge truck on the road.

the remainder of the 05 dodges are selling way way to cheap to pass up. the 06s are poping up round here now

Yea, but a Tundra ain't got a Cummins. Even if it did you couldn't pull anything cause its only a half ton.

If you are referring to a dodge 2500hd, it has an 10.5axle not a 9.25. If chevy then ok.
