I have an '02 crew cab 4x4 Duramax hot rod that I use to play with, pull the boats, beat up on street racer punks, generally pimp around. I have an '04 Chevy extra cab 2 wheel drive bone stock Duramax company truck (with a company fuel card to boot) that is my daily driver. Granted it's not as much fun as the race truck, it gets the job done.

03' Dodge 3500 sits in the Garage most of the time.
Formula - I got a 2002 Dodge w/o the crew cab and I can't wait to trade it in. I feel like I need a kidney belt to ride in it. Does the crew cab ride any better/smoother? We'll, its a work truck so I shouldn't complain.
Everyday Driver 03 3500 Turbo Diesel.
[QUOTE=baronmarine]what do you use your tow vehicle for when your not
It's a 454 ci gas pump!! I use it to drain the fuel tanks at the local gas stations Actually it is my back up daily driver
I use the pick up as a daily driver - The 20 Ton Volvo with a crane gathers dust in the yard, although the crane is usefull for getting hulls out of moulds!

The kicker was, the dealer after I'd bought TWO brand new trucks from him, a 99 and the 01, was going to subtract sixteen hundred bucks for my having the V-10, when the Kelly Blue Book stated it should add fourteen hundred bucks to the trade value, that's a 3 grand swing. Dodge gave me the song and dance about "they don't even make them anymore, so we have to subtract, to which I responded "that's because they cut too much into the sale of the Cummins and now you have the HEMI to sell. Now the Hemi is a nice engine, but it WILL NOT tow with that V-10. I think the Hemi is considerably quicker than the V-10 in normal driving, but with a boat on the back there is no comparison. I offered the salesman to go hook my boat up, he could drive it around hooked to my truck, then hook it up to a Hemi and drive it around. If he thought that Hemi towed my boat as well as the V-10, he could have my truck free, if not, I got the Hemi free. Never saw anybody backpeddle so fast in my life, he left shoe sole skid marks on the pavement.
My next truck will probably not be a Dodge, though I do like this one.
