i have been a dodge guy from the time i was 13 or so. i always loved the front end of the dodge, and i have owned 3. a ram van, a viper truck, and a cummins.

i have owned one GMC prior to this, a 95 6.5 burb.it has cooling issues, so i crossed chevy off my list.
so after my dodge blew up i figured i would try chevy again, having a distaste of dodge after that.

so it has been 2 weeks and 3000 miles.
in a few words, love it.
its mostly comfortable, good power ( not enough low end), it makes a good noise, and runs smoothe.
so far i have changed the oil filter.
took me 10min to get the oil cap off.... i even used vice grips to turn it 5 times, before i thought to pull up.....

what it needs....
4 calipers, parking brake pads, new rotors.
they are all shot.
i will take suggestions on type, and place to buy, keep in mind i am 26,000GVW.

FUEL MILEAGE!!!!!!!
with the dodge i would get 8-10 loaded.... i am getting 16!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is a 4WD too!!!!
dont tell the cummins forum guys, but this 2002 chevy is much better then my 2006 dodge.
dodge will be repaired and sold.

Glad to know you are liking the Dirtymax :thumb

And get some HID's ordered for those bad boys. I some times wonder if it wouldn't be better to have some one ride on the hood with a spot light lol.
