    Maybe older dodges? I personally hate everything they made after '93, with the exception of the Cummins engine (which they didnt make, lol).

    Drove my gf's dad's '99 1500 QC 4x4 to Pennsylvania recently. It got crap gas mileage on the way, the tranny took a **** (auto of course!), brakes suck, and all 4 new-ish tires just started going flat after sitting for a couple days. Damn Im glad I dont own that truck.

    But my D60 front is from a '78 W200...:D older Dodges are cool....






    ...parts donors!:p:

    You can keep those ugly monsters. So because you don't like creature compforts it's all crap now? Interesting. I did the whole, rubber and sheetmetal floor, primitive designed torned seats, no A/C, no radio, no heat, no defroster. You can keep all that stuff (or the lack of), I love my loaded cabs. I'll be thinking about your post next time I'm in my truck and have a nice toasty warm butt. :D

    I like them all. Had lots of dodges, never had a lemon dodge. Had lots of Lemon fords and chevys, had good ones too. Never had a lemon dodge though. Heard about them, never had one. Everything from '70-2005.

    And i've never had a dodge that got worse mileage then our old '94 454 1 ton. In fact, never had anything worse then that.

    I'm happy with 12 MPG though....

    I'd take a new dodge over a new chevy anyday.

    While we are on the topics of Dodges... What axles (front and rear), will a mid 80's Ram 2500 8 lug have in it? There is one at the junkyard I have been eyeing up.
