Ok, but you have to get rid of one truck before you can get another one Ron! That's the rule at my house.

I am looking at test driving one but I want them to be in production for a year or so to see what trend they might have for any issues.

I agree a vehicle should be sold to get a new one, I got a second plane but even though my plane is for sale I don't have anyone looking at it, maybe I should price it correctly and not 40% higher then market. I am sorry dear wifey, planes just are not selling right now.

If I do get one, I would probably put a shell on it, and get rid of my minivan. And yes Tim, that's kind of the rule at my house right now also. But it's also my rule. I try to have no cars parked in front of the house, just in the garage and driveway.

That is the 6L50. I would wait a year to see how it holds up to the torque of the diesel.

My guess is not to well, they should probably have use one for a higher torque gas engine or even a smaller Allison if they make it.
