-Kinda old and cranky like me
-Kinda short on power, but it was a deal and it's paid for
-Bought a Banks Turbo kit off E-Bay...still needs to go on there
-Looking around for a nice gooseneck trailer...currently have '18 car trailer
-Looks almost exactly like Bill's in picture above, except crew cab
-It's a work in progress like everything else....the house, jeeps, family, etc
2001.5 Dodge 2500 Cummins 4x4 5 speed quad cab long bed. Small intake and exhaust upgrades. missing most of its noise inhibiters. I seriously love my truck. It has been used harder than 99% of the trucks you see on the road, and is still in great shape, inside and out. 200,600 miles and its oil consumption is up to maybe 1/4 to 1/2 a quart between 8 thousand mile changes. Capable of pulling anything i have ever hooked to it at super-legal speeds.
I don't really know why but, it will out run or out pull any stock or lightly modded 89-02 cummins i have ever run up against, and my company has had around 11 of these year trucks, and none of them can handle my truck from a 50mph roll up to whenever you want to let off.
Not trying to brag, but i just get giddy when i talk about my truck.
PS i just realized that today is the four year aniversery when i got it. 1 more year to go.

93' F350, CC, dually, banks turbo,4" exhaust, diesel performance pump and injectors, H2O/,methanol injection (this week), towing @ 65mph I get 17mpg. Alternative fuel system on board for that ultra cheap fuel cost. Soon to be a 5 speed.
2002 Ford Excursion Limited, 4x4, 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel, auto tranny, Ramsey brake controller. Trailer is 18' dovetail, dual axle, contruction grade not sure of weight rating but the 8000lb Massey Ferguson sits just fine on it.
We need to rewire the trailer altogether to use the brake controller and I want to add some straps for tieing down BUG instead of my current chain setup.
