New to me truck (06' cummins)

Hey guys, purchased a new truck today, thought I'd share with you. Its an 06 Dodge 2500 Cummins, automatic, with the Big horn package with 80k miles. Was brought up from Arizona. Wont be taking it home till mid next week but here is a pic I snapped today. I was really wanting an extended cab truck, I loved my Ford, and would have stuck with Ford, except for the fact that any Ford diesel between 03-2010 is unreliable, so I thought I'd try a dodge. Hope it treats me well!

I switched from Ford to Dodge also. Bullet proof. I wished mine was a 4x4. 91xxx and I have replaced one injector, 1 set of tires @ 75xxx and front pads @85xxx. It's a 2500 with a hemi and gets around 20 to 24 mgp. I pull my lawn trailer 5 days a week. Just wished it were a 4x4.

Thanks guys. Krazy and all others with 03-2010 fords.. not trying to knock on your trucks, but the fact thatI dont buy trucks with factory warranty, I want a truck with a good reliable engine and most dodge owners seem to be quite happy with their trucks.
