    Welp here's what I went with . Though the new RT with a 8 speed was the business. Just couldn't do it with gas prices and bucket seats.

    The dodge reg cabs are nice but it doesn't feel like you are even the one driving. Just to smooth of a ride. Even when you floor it...just doesn't make me smile.

    I liked it . The rt version dash sits lower and has all the nice features . Gas would have been a issue . During the test drive it was constantly below 10. 2-8 lol

    ^Truth.

    and agree with the gas. My parents are always averaging less than me. Pretty sad when I am on 35's with a giant box on the back catching wind and I am still getting better mpg.

    At least you guys werent looking at getting fords. You'd have to buy a car trailer and haul the taco everywhere as a backup.

    If I bought a ford I would just leave it on the lot. Then once a month push it in the maintenance bay and wait for my wallet to get raped.

    I had one before this truck, total garbage. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING broke on that POS.

    Never again will I buy a vehicle that the engineers didn't even manage to keep the spark plugs in the heads :rolleyes:

    Correct, no crawl box. Twin stick case for $950. My t-case actuator shit the bed and rather than shelling out more money on another garbage actuator I decided to go this route. It's not a terribly difficult conversion to the FJ case but I don't have the workspace to do it now. That and Wyatt clearly knows what he's doing more than the majority or all of us...

    The crawler is roughly $1600 and I could always add it later, just no money for it now. :eek:

    Manual selector would be good on a higher milage vehicle . Crawl box you should have 37's +
