    Well I did it, purchased a 1999 Dodge Turbo Cummins Diesel 1 ton dually. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    Been wanting one of these trucks for a really long time, and I do me a really long time. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif After the last few long towing trips, and getting spanked /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gifby the other tow rigs on the road, I started looking about 2 months ago. I have looked at a bunch of these trucks.

    I finally signed the paperwork on it today. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif 126K mile, manual trans, and it's a 4x4. It currenlty has a truck body on it, it's silver and it's the #hit. I totally stoked. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    The blazer is finally going to be a somewhat trailer queen. It's getting old driving it to the trails, and it's horrible on gas, so the diesel is the answer.

    I will post up some pictures when it get light out.

    Woooo Hooooo. Im ready for a trip to Parker, AZ got to try out the new tow rig.... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Cool. Is it the 6 spd? I am learning a little bit more about the CTD. Might end up w/one someday. A guy at work bought a new 99 CTD w/the 6. He told me they were rare in 99. Didn't know if he was Full of it.

    Good for you/forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
    Did you keep the red 1/2 ton too? After CB'ing back and forth on the florence trip it sounded like you were getting serious about comfort (and safety). Now you just need a trailer.
