    Has anyone seen one of these? How were they built? Whats the pricing like? I spoke to a dealer today that has Ford and Sterling said that they are comparable trucks with a n edge to the Ford as far as quality.

    I have looked at them and they spec out good. I probably won't get one this year but with the 6.7, 6 speed auto and factory exhaust brake it should be a towing monster. A pimped out 5500 two wheel drive was coming in about $40,000.

    That's exactly what they are. I have a few Sterling's and love them, Sterling is owned by Freightliner which is part of Mopar, how does that saying go again.....

    i cant see spending 40,000 or over on a truck that small, you could spend 40,000 on a bigger more officient truck, however they are really nice and i kno a guy that has the 3500 dodge with that same exhuast brake and that truck sounds mean

    Its a 2500 or 3500 Dodge Ram with a Sterling Grill and about a $10,000 higher price tag.
