Does any have a 2002 Dodge w/ a 4.7 V8? Or does anybody know anything about them? Drove A quadcab yesterday and it felt like it had as much power as my Suburban. Anyway, I put a deposit on one. Like to know pros and cons.

Sounds like a nice ride, Mike. I must say I was not impressed with the rust on your '94 Dodge. You don't see many (if any) rusty Chevys of that vintage. Check the number of leaves in the rear springs. If you have four main leaves plus a helper spring, you should not have to worry about rear end sag when towing your boat. If you have only three leaves, then I would see how it looks with the boat hooked up and go from there. I have nothing against Dodge but, I am a Chevy man myself. I'm sure you will love it. Suburbans Rule! & any boat with a 502!!!

Congratulations Mike. There's nothing like the feeling you get when you buy a new vehicle in the spring to start off the new Michigan warm weather months. How about stopping over after work and taking me out for a ride? I haven't been out since my ride home from the hospital.

sounds like a great truck
The only thing I would have changed was gone with a third door.
I love the trucks from that year range. I hope ot have one myself in the next 2 months also
