Many years ago I had a new 1995 3/4 ton 4x4 360. Loved that truck but pretty under powered for towing. Have owned two other 1/2 ton 4x4 Dodge trucks. A 1985 new and a 2006 new. All treated me well with hard use. We purchased a 30 foot fifth wheel last spring and I needed a truck to pull it. I found a 1998 1 ton, 4x4, quad cab dually with 38,000 original miles. Super clean truck. Loaded SST Sport package. It had pulled an off shore race boat most of its life in south Florida. Looks as if it spent a lot of time parked inside. I did the typical cracked dash repair,CAI install, planning on a muffler change and duels. This truck drives like new. It felt like it wanted to wander a bit so I installed a steering box stabilizer, had front end aligned which wasent out but a little and a new set of BFG tires on the front. Drives perfect now to me anyway. I tow my 13,000 lb 5th wheel down the highway at 65 or 70 mph and the truck just don't care. Rides better with the load. I,m interested in any way to improve mpg of course but no load 13 mpg highway, loaded 7 mpg. I'm planning on running this old truck for 4 or 5 years then buying a Cummins. No complaints with the V10. No payments will buy lots of fuel.
