Talking Our new to us upgrade TV

We were lucky to get a deal from a family member. We are the proud new owners of a 2008 Dodge 3/4 ton, with an 8' bed, 6.7 Cummins, Quad Cab with 68k on it. I have drooled over this truck for a couple of years now since my dad had quit pulling a trailer (thankfully). We are moving up from a 1/2 ton Chevy Silverado 4.8 liter. While it could get the job done it just seemed to be not enough, plus the mileage you get really stinks, even if you are not towing. We have pretty much quit our 4x4 adventuring as well.

It is more truck than what we need, but when retirement comes I won't have to worry with the fur/feather kids getting over headed in the back of the truck (fumes as well) and knowing that this truck will pull the grades when we head into my beloved mountains. Just a better all around truck. Plus out bed cap from the Silverado will fit on this truck as well.

We have not been able to camp this year yet, but soon a trip will be in order.
