we put a blizzard plow on the dakota right after that storm, its the perfect truck for driveways, its got the 4.7litre v8 in it, so its got plenty of power.

I like that outfront mower! what brand and year is that? looks cool!

THEGOLDPRO

yeah ill grab some soon, obviously the mower is 61 inch scag turf tiger, the other one is a toro with a leafblower on it for fall claen up and stuff, we also have a little 48" exmark walk behind, and will be picking up another rider, haven't decided on brand yet, but it will either be another scag, a toro, or a lesco 60" i saw one the other day, and it looked like a good mower at a great price.

Does the Ram have the 5.2 in it? Looks like a great rig for residentials with the small wheelbase. How do you like the Curtis?

yeah it does, wish it had the 5.9 or the cummins at times, but its a great truck, and i cant complain, i love the curtis plow, its very fast and responsive, not like the old western i had.

and yeah the truck is great truck for driveways, its perfect size, not too big, but not too small that it has a hard time pushing. thanks for the comments guys keep em coming.

Nice RAM nice equip too. Does the dakota do any work or did it just happen to get in the picture?well the dakota is a real nice truck, it has the same power my truck has, he tows with it, and does the same i do with my truck, the only downside ot the dakota is the brakes, his truck is lighter, so it stops like ass, feel light in the ass when we have alot of weight on the trailer.

The Dakota has a 5.2?

THEGOLDPRO

no the dakota has the new 4.7 v8 but its rated for the same power as the 5.2 litre, its the base engine they put in all the new rams, if you dont get the hemi, or the cummins.

That is what I thought. My dad's 2003 Dakota has the 4.7. Overall it is good engine.

we use em both the same really, they are both good trucks like i said mine stops better with a load on it thats all, they both tow the same, the only time we dont use his is if we need to haul a heavy load in the bed, like for instance i reciently got a pallet of mulch, we threw 3/4 in my truck, and that last 1/4 in his. no pics of the blizzard on it, but i will get some.
