ok, first off hey all i know its been awhile hasnt it?

its come to the time where my cougar is about done and im not going to take it on the freeway to shows so id like to get a truck and i know id love a Dodge...again.

Which do you think i should get? the CTD or Hemi? Im mostly going to be around town and of course it wont stay stock for long but the shows i will be pulling the cougar on a trailor. I need something to pull the cougar but not kill me at the pump....

i definetly want a 2500 CTD 4x4...thats been my dream truck for quite awhile....

although i just didnt think it was necesarry because of the mileage would probably just kill me.

Better mileage= CTD
Better towing= CTD
What you really like=CTD
It seems to me you have already made your decision. :D

Ok i'll be the one to say it, while I respect your loyalty to Mopar, your pulling a Mercury, why dont you purchase a Lincoln P/U & a color matched trailer. After all a Mercury is to Ford as Lincoln is to Mercury. It would be a great picture. (IMO)

Though the Hemi is no slouch, I think the CTD will out pull the Hemi on any day. I say this and you see what I am driving <

An '05 and it already has 82,000 miles on it? Wow, your dad must think the wheel was made round so it will "Roll" huh? Glad to see the high numbers though.

Actually my dad has only put about 6,000 on it my mom put the rest. She was driving alot to work with the real estate company. It was almost cheaper to buy an economy car then pay her gas bill. But she quit that company so she didn't have to drive as much.
