Probably doesn't wheel for sheet, but it looks alright.

If Dodge dares to be different then why are they building F-150's with a dodge front clip!

FAWKIN IFS!!!!
FAWKIN AERODYNAMIC WINDSHIELD!!!!
FAWKIN BIG ASS UGLY OVAL GRILL!!!!!!!

Well at least we have another year before they start making the 2500's and 3500's like the new Chevy's, which is what I would want to drive if it wasn't for the FAWKIN IFS !!!!!

I am glad that I was finally able to buy a new 2500 this past year (put 350,000 on my last one) , because if I had to have waited a couple of years , I might have been forced into buying a Ford, just to have a real axle up front.

Nah no hope!!!!

I was looking at one this weekend, and what a joke. They don't call it a Crewcab, because.....IT AIN'T!!!! Sitting in the back of a old body Quad cab is almost more comfortable than sitting in the back of the new QuadIwishIwasaCrewCab. I guess I could get used to the new front end (still looks like ASS though) But I hope to GAWWWWWD that they put a real back seat in the new 3500. But judging by the spy pics I can find, it looks like they will share the same cab as the 1/2 ton AND be IFS BOOO HOOO HOOO....

That $12K Crew conversion is looking more and more tasty for my '01 3500 every day!!!!

Uh, only the half ton is getting the IFS. The 3/4 and 1 ton are mantaining the straight front axle. It is just the same as all the rest. Granted I didn't see the "Four Full Sized Doors" as full size either. I see it as an improvement though. We shall see what comes in the year ahead though.

My wife works a mile from the Chrysler Desert Proving Grounds in Wittman, Arizona. I saw a disguised dualie and it was a solid axle rig

I can't stand the new grills. I hope the aftermarket comes out with something that removes the giant cross and just has horizontal bars. I think that would make it look a bit better.

I also can't stand the 4 door cabs... YUCK! I guess we will be keeping our 2001 Cummins for a looong time

2500 and 3500's

RELAX DUDE!! THE 2500 AND THE 3500 BOTH WILL MAINTAIN THE SOLID FRONT AXLE. DC JUST WANTED THE 1500 TO HAVE A MORE CAR LIKE RIDE. I TOO DISAGREE WITH THAT. I WISH THEY ALL HAD SOLID FRONTS, BUT HEY YOU HAVE A BUNCH OF GERMANS RUNNING THINGS NOW. I JUST HOPE THEY DON'T SCREW EVERYTHING UP. IF YOU WANT A REAL COOL DODGE SEND YOUR DODGE TO USA6X6 AND WE WILL CONVERT YOU 4X4 DODGE TO A 6X6 T-REX. CHECK OUT THE ONE WE ARE BUILDING NOW. GO TO: DODGERAM.ORG AND CLICK ONTHE USA6X6 T-REX PROJECT LINK AND YOU WILL SEE OUR BEAST. IS IS ALMOST DONE, IT IS IN THE PAINT BOOTH NOW GETTING A NEW SKIN.

MAN... You guys build the T-Rex? That's an awesome looking rig. I fell in love with that thing first time I saw it. Too bad I'll never be able to afford one

I saw one of those last spring. It sure was a great looking truck!


As far as the new 2002 squishycrewcab, I looked at one when they first came out. I wasn't too impresssed with some of the interior pieces, the small back seat or the 60" wiper blades but I did like the flip up or out trailer towing mirrors. The big plastic grille doesn't seem too strong and looks kinda out of place. The one I looked at was a 4x4 and you could only see the front diff from under the hood. The "little bit bigger than a Club Cab" almost crewcab with a regular box was something freaky like 162" wheelbase! Imagine trying to park that thing. Let me tell you though they really thought about cooling in these things. Everything that needs a cooler has it's own HUGE cooler. That's about all that I liked about the truck.
