.... For a truck. I think my life is going pretty well thanks :lol3:
Anyways.....

I was thinking of getting a dodge ram Cummins in the next month or so- Ignore the thread that says where can I get a 4cyl I think I am going to go with a dodge ram Cummins.

I was wondering how many of you Ontarioians (you dont have to be from ontario to post just let me know) have a manual and how many have a auto and your preference on both.

I found a few on Autotrader and kijiji for the right price, 10-17 thousand. 2 or 3 with a manual and a few more with the auto. Should I buy a stock one with no mods???????

Just let me know what you prefer and why... Thanks


I think if I could find one I would go with a reg cab long bed manual 12v or 24v I have little knowledge on either to me they are somewhat the same. One is somewhat mechanical and the other is more computerized :confused:.

I do not need the truck to tow a fifth wheel...
People tell me to get a gasser well I hate gas lol:T:



Thanks
Hopefully some of the stuff I said makes sense :thumbsup
If you find something let me know......

Buy a truck from the southern US, save money and avoid RUST.

I would buy stock......doing your own thing with it is half the fun.:thumbsup
I would have gotten a standard,but my wife has to drive it once in a while,so I went with the auto. It costs a bit more to upgrade it if your going to add more power,but with a few thousand invested,it will hold 500hp pretty well.......not that I'm at 500hp yet,but getting there.....:$:

Just my 2 cents...

Auto's cost a lot more to build to hold the power

all depends on what you want to do with it

Drag racing & playing on the street "Auto"

sled pulling and or like shifting "Stick"

buy stock and mod it yourself that way you know what kind of abuse it has had.

I know its an excuse but with harsh winters how much longer would this last?
