I've got almost everything in and i think I can still fit up to 3 pallets in. I'm very happy with the room!

The clearance is 10'2"

With a bumper like that I would think you'd be the favorite in a demolition derby.

I bought a new towing rig this weekend. It's a low mile 2012 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn Megacab diesel. I looked for a long time and got it "on the cheap", so I couldn't pass it up...I absolutely love this truck!

Someone mentioned earlier about the DEF being mandated in 2011, mine Ram Trucks don't use it until 2013, so mine don't need it!

Nice Rig!
Now swap out the grey trailer for a white one.

They de-tuned the diesels so much to pass emissions,they aren't what they used to be power wise. And something about having to put pee-pee in my tank just doesn't sit well with me.

Say what??? Must be a Ford thing.

My 6.7 Cummins is only running the DPF, no extra liquids for me.

I'm in the same price range for a 3 gallon oil change as Joe. Cold starts, not an issues for most manufacturers anymore. Since 2004, none of my diesels have had a block heater plug on the truck. Motors have been Cummins and Mercedes. This past winter has been some of the coldest that we have had, highs of -8 and I had no problem starting.

Dodge has an exhaust brake type system built into the turbo for 2 purposes. One purpose is to help keep the soot from building up in the turbo housing due to the EGR system and the other is to assist in braking. Oh boy does it assist. My factory brakes lasted for 85,000 miles. Not too bad for a truck that has an average weight of 13k pounds empty.

Dodge runs an Aisin built trans in the Cab&Chassis trucks and in their HO motor in the 2500/3500. When I acquired my 2008 C&C, nobody made any upgrade parts for the AISIN trans. Now that the trans is being used in the HO 2500/3500 trucks, Im sure the aftermarket will start catching up. In a stock to mildly tuned truck, I'm willing to bet the Aisin trans will run with the Allison with no problem. Time will tell though.

My 06 3500 Duramax 4x4 (CCLB) is a beast and I've not had a lick of trouble out of it ever (motor or tranny) Still has original brake pads at 135k miles....Did replace the front bearings on both hubs around 80k but that's it. Get 16mpg around town and 19-20 on the long haul without towing. Pretty great for a 1 ton 4x4 work truck in my book. I also have an 03 2wd 2500 Dodge with a Cummins (add 4:10 rear gear) it'll drag our 37' 5th wheel anywhere we want it....Another great truck. FWIW you can override some factory electronics in most of them and engage a turbo brake system with some simple re-wiring.

What vehicle for tile setter is best?

Just curious I've been slinging tiles for almost 12 years now and we since had to retire two full size vans now just an f150 fx4, not much bed room in those but enough to haul some hardibacker, turned back seat into custom tool box. But I still miss the accessibility in a van and the space.

This idea varies as much as which pair of jeans or shorts to wear to work. Some guys run vans, some run box trucks and some run cargo trailers behind their trucks. I personally use a 7 x 16 cargo trailer behind my one ton pickup truck. I like this option because I have a nice truck when I want it, and I can drop the trailer anytime I want to. The trailer is big enough to handle almost everything I throw in it.

I tow a 10ft version of the trailer shown. Two rear swinging doors and a side door. Made my own shelving to fit the tools.

DOn't we have a thread about this already ?
