    I couldn't stand it anymore so I broke down and ordered a 2006 Dodge 3500 quad cab, 4x4, Laramie package (heated leather :) ) Diesel, 6speed version and single wheel rear. I think the only option I didn't get was the sunroof.
    Bad news is it won't be here until sometime in August. I will try to survive until then....somehow

    Nice pick! But personnaly i would go for the 2500HD gmc - duramax.
    But i hear that for hauling, cummins are hard to beat.

    My mom's boyfriend had one dodge 3500 too(fitted to haul a 3 car trailer) he said that thing had crazy torque to it!! :) So much torque he cracked transmission housing(6 speed) :eek:

    Congratulations.

    Not a fan of the 06 looks and I'd rather the old 6 speed, but sounds like you got what you wanted, thats what matters :D Every couple weeks I go to Chevy.com and configure an extended cab longbed duramax 6 speed rig, :D. Someday...

    EDIT: looks like only the new "mega cab" version has the ugly Dakota front end. Buddy of mine is in the market and told me they all had the new Dakota look.

    yeah, the new front end kinda bugs me. maybe once i see it in person i will like it. i have an 04.5 3500 short box 2wd 6 speed 4.10. i want a sun roof and a long box dually... so in the next year or so MAYBE ill trade it in. i have had the truck for a year but didnt drive it for 7.5 months and still put 15k+ on it with a 2500 mile next month.... LOVE IT!!

    oh, congrats, and what color did you get? i want GREEN... and thats another reason i want to trade mine in... but im not sure you can get the 2500/3500 in green yet.... bastards...

    Hey Steve, if you want to save $8-9K off the sticker price let me know ;) Or if you go to the TDR forum lookup "Tomeygun". He is Missouri and offers some really nice discounts :deal:

    Cool, I have now seen those pics for the 1034th time. :D I still have not seen a quad cab sport which should look better, course that's not saying much.

    I think they look sharp. I'd have one in the garage. It's always hard waiting for new toys, isn't it? ;)

    Did you look at Steve White Dodge ? They have great internet prices and are in Hickory, NC. I found them on Ebay of all places. They do internet sales below invoice.

    Nice score! Sounds like yours is setup nice. What pic is everyone talking about? I don't see it? How much different do the 05's and 06's look?

    Congratulations, Bryan :)

    It is impressive, the only thing is, you have to have lots of $$$$ to wheel a $40K+ truck. It would be cool though to have one of course. I just wouldn't wheel a $600 a month car note :D
