Wow this is depressing but you gotta do what you gotta do. Both of your trucks were badass and your half ton has been a big inspiration for my truck! I cant wait for the day you get back in a Dodge! Good luck with your financial situation and with the new truck! Hope you stay active on the forum so you can continue to give good advice!

Im in the same boat but since mine is paid for Im keeping it. With current gas prices my truck goes to work and back (40 miles weekly) and thats it!

Thanks guys. I've already seen some positives out of it. The black truck I had I purchased with emotions and you all know.. never do that. Truck was actually in a world of hurt.

We've already seen some gains from our financial situations, I am that much closer to my dream home, and once we make that move. I will be back into a Dodge. A 3rd gen or 4th gen is my old undecided 'problem' at this time.

I've been working on a few paint projects. I just finished this car for a fellow DT member.

Things are aligning up right now.

Like I said, I NEEDED OUT of my current truck BAD. Dodge would not give me what I had got a Chevy. ONLY reason I took it. I do not and will not get into details on that. But I will be back.. well. I haven't gone anywhere... still here, posting to you guys.

I got to get PCP over here to paint his hood!!!


Tell you this Chevy truck is not a Dodge. This truck would fall apart if I did the stuff I did to my Dodges...

I have had 6 or 7 Chevys before these 3 Dodges. I thought I was a true at heart Chevy guy. Friends would give me crap. It's a dodge..

But I've seen both sides now. Dodge.. hands down just a better all around truck. REAL WORLD results. I miss her.

Thanks George. That took me three months to paint that beast. It's a 70 Nova with a LS2 motor from a 05 Vette. Had to do a color change from silver and black to that sweet red. It's doesn't even look like the same color in person. Cameras don't pick up how sweet this color is..



If you remember if I had my CTD still, It would have been painted last week. My wife was taking 2 weeks off to go to Canada. I took the 2 weeks off from work so I could paint my black truck. I was going to paint it green and black.. but I probably would have gone this color.. if I could afford it. It was $800 a gallon..
