Dodge was my first choice, but they just don't have the room for 4 or 5 guys. Chevy was second but I didn't find any in my price range.

MegaCabs have more room than most would need. And they can certainly hold 4 or 5 guys - and all their junk.
They just seem to cost a fortune though.

My last diesel was a 2007 Duramax GMC Sierra. When I looked at new truck prices this time around the GM dealers wanted $60K or more for a new truck, and they didn't have anything on the lot except super loaded up high dollar trucks.

This Dodge has all the funtional components I wanted; Cummins engine, auto trans, limited slip rear end, and 4 wheel drive. It also has all the convenience items inside that I wanted; power windows, power door locks, tilt wheel, cruise control, carpeted floors, cloth seats, six speaker stereo with Sirius satelite, and the in dash computer. But it is a base model ST trim package with plain painted bumpers and painted steel wheels, and because of that the price was a lot better. Total price out the door, after all document fees, sales tax, etc., was $39,878. That was more than $20,000 less than the GM dealer wanted for their cheapest one ton dually.

And one more thing, the lack of room you are mentioning with Dodge is for their old quad cab trucks. Dodge used to make a quad cab and a mega cab. The quad cab was too small and the mega cab was too big. Now they make a crew cab and a mega cab. The crew cab is the same size as a GM or Ford crew cab, and has just as much interior room. 2010 is the first year of the crew cab in HD Dodge trucks.

I don't plan on doing any performance mods, it runs plenty strong enough for me. Eventually I will paint the bumpers body color to dress it up a bit.

This is my daily driver/tow rig. I have had it for 3 years now and so far it has been great!

For day trips or trips to the cabin in Big Bear I was flat towing the YJ with a WJ (kind of sketchy though):



Traded the WJ in for a F150 (more room for the family & gear & better towing):


But most of the time I'm dragging it behind the motor home:

You can always tell the size of a mans wallet by looking at his tow rig

Not a big wallet just good credit and a bad economy
