dodge mega cab


more interrior room then most passasenger cars

i am saddened to see the agressive front end go though, but at least it doesnt look near as bad as the new durango, but it is awesome that dodge finally has 4 real doors, what are your guys oppinions on this truck. here is a link

the truck looks nice, I just am not a fan of any truck that has more laborers loaded in the truck than labor loaded in the back of the truck.

Reminds me of the 8 man road construction crews where 7 men were standing around a hole watching a woman dig....

now if you can throw a trailer on the back with some heavy lawn equipment or small escavatioin equipment to keep all them hands bussy then I might change my mind.... This means this truck would have to be at least a one ton.

I have a dodge dakota it barely carries enuff of a load to keep me bussy. Nice running little truck, great for light fishing and hunting trips and running the wooded trails where most trucks will be taking dammage to the finish.

This is just my opinion and I would not want to buy this truck for these reasons.

If it is a one ton it could pull a big enuff boat or camper to accomidate 6-8 sportmen.

I have read that the mega cab will be offered in 1/2 3/4 and full ton sizes, which will mean that it will have the hemi across the boards as well as the option for the cummins turbo diesel which the last time i checked it was producing 605lbs of torque, that is all the power one would ever need in a pickup.

The new dakotas have the option for a v8 that is plenty of power for the little pickup, i have seen them toating boats and 4wheeler trailers and horse trailers heck i have even seen them pulling a 5 person 5th wheel camp trailer around, lots of power now, but not alot of size if you need to stop quickly with alot of wight in tow, that can spell trouble for an inexperienced driver.

now that sounds like an impressive turck.

on the little one mine has 4 cylender... the biggest thing I will put behind it is a small trailer and boat. trailer with my articat is pushing it's limits....

and you know it. we will be using our trucks in the middle of winter for hunting and fishing with ice and snow on the roads and we will be climbing up and down hills and mountains.... Stoping would become a major issue...
