@Daisy - Yes I am, I find myself looking out the window at it all the time. I can't wait until this Friday when we roll out in our maiden trip.

@RattVader - Thanks, I am really impressed with the Cummins engine and the trucks all-around towability.

@Wiscampsin - Just got to load her up with all the camping essentials - food, water, beer, etc...

@mtnguy and tentcamper1 - Thanks for the compliments

Happy Camping this year everyone.

Well maiden trip is just about over with, boo. The only gripe i have is that the tee in the water shore tie was not tight and it leaked inside the front belly box. No big deal though caught it before it got too bad. The wife and i are loving the outside speakers.

If thats the sole issue you ran into and did indeed catch it before it caused any major damage you did well.May you have many more joy filled camping trips ahead for you! That 2500 with the CTD is badass

@JFM-jr - Ya, it almost felt strange not having anything serious go wrong. I guess it helps when your walking around and knocking on as much wood as possible, lol. Thanks for the compliments on the truck, she's been real good to me.

@trudinator - thanks we have a trip planned to Disney later this year, we are all very excited for that one. Ya, our truck do look similar. Mine is a 2004. The lights aren't factory I had to install them myself. Pretty sketchy when you start to drill into the roof though.

LOL. My first hubby put a sunroof in my car quite a few years ago. I think I almost passed out when he made that first cut!! Turned out perfect though. Ours is a new to us '06 and we absolutely love it. Sure gets better mileage than our'02 Durango!!!
