    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.

    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 +

    That's just for the lockers guys. Ill get a 20lb tank for the tires/tools.

    Ill get up to 1200 locker uses out of a 12 ounce tank and I have a 9 ounce ill keep in the tool box as a spare.

    Damn, that's impressive. I don't know why but I still like the compressor idea :notsure:

    That is amazing capacity though!
