Hot Dog! A New Truck!

Well I finally traded my 1993 Ford Explorer. That was the best car I ever had. When I bought it, new I told my first wife I would drive it into the next century! I did and then some. Never a major mechanical problem. Changed the oil every 3000 miles religously. I even got 100,000 miles on a set of Wal-mart Goodyear tires. They couldn't belive it. But if you keep the pressure where it belongs and rotate and balance them properly that is one fine tire.
The explorer had 276,624 miles on it.

Ah but the new truck. 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab. Write-me-a-ticket Red. It was ordered for the dealership owner, but he bought a bigger boat and had to get a bigger truck. It has ALL the bells and whistles. My wife is happy because now I have a vehicle with air bags. I am happy because I will spend two hours a day in it and it rides real nice. Have to finish it off with a brush gard, nerf rails, tool box and bed liner. I'll post a picture as soon as my grandson emails the ones he took yesterday.

Driving and smiling!

You won't regret getting a Dodge. I'm on my second one (the first was done in by a deer). Mine is a '94, and still looks a runs great. I am a firm believer in Dodge. I have only had one problem,with it. The fuel pump had to be replaced, last year. Great truck!!!!

O man, ain't it cool? :) I have a 2000, red Dodge 1500 Sport with runningboards and the flares. Di you get a spray in bed liner? GOT to have one, they are wonderful. Congratulations!

Way to go! I wish I could afford a new one. I'm still driving the 1985 Nissan 4x4. Has over 400,000 miles on it and going pretty good for an old guy.

enjoy the new wheels rickstir - dodges sure look nice. one nieghbor never hauled much but went thru 3 trannies , the other one got a diesel and drags a bobcat around without trouble so i think it's that specific unit - i'm still a little leery of those trannies :)

Enjoy the new truck! I've had a 97 1500 Ram X-cab and it has been a great truck. Never any mechanical problems or tranny problems or paint problems since I bought it in 97. When this one sees it's end I will get another RAM, but maybe a 2500 for pulling a bigger horse trailer. Being a lady I like the way the Ram fits me just right on the interior and also suits 6' tall dh.

From a feminine point of view, those Dodge trucks are so fine looking.
I sure hope your paint does not start peeling in a year or two.
I will never buy another Chrysler product again for that very reason.
I see Dodges and Plymouths up and down the road with peeling paint.
Chrysler will not do anything about it either.
A big new Dodge truck is surely a thing of beauty though.
