UCTJ Lousy picture but I picked up this 2012 3500 on Veterans Day.

JHALL Flew down to Texas this past Saturday and picked this up. Central Texas truck all it's life, super clean and runs great. 2002 F250 7.3 Lariat. Has an Edge tuner and 6637 intake, other than that pretty much stock I think other than a couple interior upgrades.

Not a big fan of the wheels, I'll probably try to find a set of factory Lariat wheels when it's time for new tires.

I kept riding by meaning to get info and post here in the cool truck for sale thread....did you buy it? Its gone....

pennsylvaniaboy As great as the cummins trucks were, it's a shame that dodge never made them in a crew cab in the 2nd generation trucks. I will never own one because of that.

UTAHYJ Just got this the other day, we'll see how she tows tomorrow. 2000 5 speed 24v Cummins. Highlights: Edge Juice with Attitude, BHAF, 4" Exhaust- 6" Tip, Lifted on 35s.


Dog likes it too.

gots_a_sol My dodge wasn't cutting it any more (needed seating for more than 2 people) so I snagged this Excursion off craigslist for $2500. It is a v10 sadly, but I do seem to have this old dodge with a cummins sitting here to fix that

Badass!

One question though: Is that buggy on the truck fullsize? My eyes are playing tricks on me with the cabover and I really can't tell for sure. How much deck length do you have on the truck?

It's a small shop in Cordell, Oklahoma called Western Welding. The beds start at 6k and then you add your options. They have a website and facebook

Just keep in mind there is about a 5 month wait time right now. They are backed up that bad! But it's only a 4 man crew when their lucky. A lot of the time it's just 2 guys. He is trying to hire several more guys to work to speed up the wait times, but it's hard to find quality workers. I wanted a functional bed but I still wanted it to look good since this is my daily driver. So it was worth the wait. I got some insurance money from damage on my bed so that helped to motivate me.

I don't really see much different in mileage. Hand calculated highway is about 17 but that isn't adjusted for tire size. I've tried it with the quad set to 0 and 10 with maybe 1 mpg change. The quadzilla is nice but scanning codes on it doesn't work and sometimes the wifi signal from the programmer to the IQuad app messes up. Nice to have all the gauges though. Getting rid of the stack was hands down the best thing I have done to it so far.

It's normal but fixable. The swaybar and helper blocks will help leaps and bounds. Check out RVforum.net for their great truck camper specific forum. They have tons of great info and a few guys here are on there as well.

If you have no suspension issues I wouldn't advise airbags, I would try a nice stiff swaybar first, I assume wavy gravy means sway in the turns? If that is the case airbags may or maynot help but a nice beefy swaybar will help tons. I've upgraded or added on all my vehicles and it makes a huge difference. The other issue is that airbags will fail, it's only a matter of time, you may not experience a failure but if you do it will scare the shit out of you.

I believe hellwig makes a "big-wig" set up for your truck that you should look into. Also I can't tell if you have overloads or auxiliary springs but if you do I would look into sway stops too, those will engage the overloads or

Pat McRotch It's a big fawker. I wanted a 9.5'- 10' camper, this one's an 11' but it was a good deal.
