Priceless

Howdy yall I'm new to these forums just thought I'd enter on someone of a funny note and introduce myself I’m not sure if this is the place to introduce myself or if I really should but well shoot might as well and I got a real funny story and I think my more condensed version here will get the point across. I'll soon need advice on customizing my truck more and God forbid the problems ensuing from my reckless upgrading addiction. I've read the forums and it seems to be the place to come. I'm a rancher from AZ love the diesels and although it may not seem like it I do respect Cummins just not the variation in the dodge pickups for reasons I could go for years explaining. Not a big Dodge fan anyhow so here it goes.
$40,000 Back Cash from Trading 07 Duramax with 6in RCD Lift 18in gear with 35 Toyo MT’s with 15,000 Miles believing Dodge finally made a decent truck with the big name hype of Cummins.
$48,000: 2008 Dodge Ram 6.7 Mega Cab Laramie in White with leveling kit.
$300: Extra desert package, tint etc…
$100: Diesel
Taking back brand new dodge with 1700 miles after 2 weeks having already been in the shop once along with worse fuel mileage than my Chevy not to mention the surprisingly poor performance as compared to my Chevy. Then trading it back in for my Chevy and watching the dealers face in disbelieve. Priceless. There are some things in life doing over. Loosing 10 grand on a Dodge is not one of them so remember folks don’t do what I did haha. Thought you dmax boys would get a kick out of that I sure did till the payment comes in the mail next month.
