    Congrats flairland! Beautiful truck. I have an 06 3500 drw 4x4. I am more then happy with it. Throw some cab lights on her! No doubt you got a great deal! What did you end up doing with your equipment? I remember you had it for sale.

    Thanks tss. I actually am planning to put cab lights on some time in the spring, they will finish it off nicely. I did have my equipment for sale, still have the asv and the deere. To be honest, I just list my stuff for sale and if I feel I get ebough for it, ill sell it and look for another deal. So far not too many bites on my equipment but we'll see what happens in the spring. I'd love to end up with a 35D and an RC/PT60.

    Nice truck. Did you get rid of your black Ford? I disagree a little on the Fords but know what you mean.:)

    As for equipment, feel your pain as stuff just isn't moving.

    Thats a nice truck, I switched to Dodge after I got a taste of the 6.0l powerstroke. It took some getting use to not stopping at the filling station as much lol!

    Very nice truck. You got the 5.9 cummins without the DPF filter. Very good decision. I unfortunately got an 07 with the DPF which ruins the fuel economy in these trucks. You made a great choice!!!. My truck is great besides the fuel economy caused by the DPF.

    5.9 never had a dpf . 2007.5 cummins switched the the 6.7 motor which had a dpf.
    dpf=diesel particulate filter
