Bub is motorvated by a 2001 Dodge Ram, 2500, HO Cummins loved on by Banks, brakes are also upgraded.
Pros. Paid for. It pulls like a modern truck, looks like she's going to pull down about 13MPG. Handles well, believe it or not I'm under my limits for a typical loadout with room to spare.
Cons. My dash fell in (In conversation with Ram about that.) and she is 14 years old. Typical squeaks and rattles expected with a truck of that vintage. I do feel the appeal of the newer trucks, built in electric brake controllers, exhaust brakes, etc. but I just can't swing the payments.
She's a good old girl, in great shape, and can accelerate uphill with the full load. She's about to get the spa treatment with syn fluid swaps for the trans and the diff, new belt, hoses, water pump and coolant swap. I love her, don't expect to see her go anytime soon.
