A friend of mine bought a new 2010 5500 Dodge CC 4X4 in your neck of the woods and drove it all the way back to St Louis with no bed. It like to beat him to death. He wanted a 6sp and they were just not found in a 5500 CC locally.

Nice truck, I have always liked my Cummins.

With a 900 lb bed and 100 lb receiver, this truck felt good driving home from Idaho where I bought it. Dave Smith Motors is the largest Ram dealer in the US and made it worth the trip.

Both Ford and Ram have $1500 in rebates on 2015's and over $4000 on left over 2014's. If you can find old stock that you like, there are some awesome deals right now on 2500's with 6.4 Hemi's.

Didn't you have a Ford 6.7 PSD back in 2011?

The only Ford diesels I have had were two different 7.3s. The last one was from the friend that bought the Dodge. It was a 95 F350 with an aluminum dump flatbed with 413K miles and had never had the heads off. In 2011 I had a 2010 GMC with a 6.2 gas motor. It got terrible mileage, I only kept it a year...that is another story.

Who had that Ford at the 2011 Buggy Bash? It was parked on your site on the 50A side of the park. I think it was a crew cab with a blue metallic color.

. My GMC was greyish blue. There wouldn't have been room for another truck on my site. My camper was there, my 16ft flatbed and my truck. Barely enough room for the buggies. In 2012 and 13 I had my dark blue metallic Dodge crew with a Cummins.

I think my friend got his from the same dealer as you did.

Changes will be happening in the spring of 2017. We're going bigger!

Our Arctic Fox truck camper has been serving us well, but we got bit by the bug and will be upgrading to something like this that still fits on the back of the truck:

The camper is sold and the truck is sitting empty. Now the waiting game for the new one...

Nice Pete. Which one is that? The Mammoth? How many slide-outs?

That is the Host Mammoth. It has three slides - One out each side plus one out the back. To give you a size perspective, the slide section you see in the driver side shot is over 11' long and overall height is about 13'

Awesome Pete! Sure sits up high on your chassis cab. Let's schedule a weekend ride soon.

We're moving back to Portland area this summer so maybe an Oregon Dunes trip? We did Moses Lake last weekend. It was fun but I prefer the Oregon Dunes and the campgrounds there better.
