  2. CB Radio Install

    Your install looks pretty nice. I've only had this thing of mine about three weeks. I'm a ham radio operator. Already itching to drill some holes in the truck. First is gonna be a VHF/UHF dual band rig. The antenna will be mounted through the roof, because any place else with U/V is just useless. Hope to get another Kenwood TS-480HX for 200 watt on HF/6 meter, and some sort of screwdriver antenna on a custom mount. Ed
  3. 3 weeks ago I bought a used 2016 LT with just over 13k miles. I paid $30K for it. I have been driving Dodges for the last 23 years. I always loved how people who had never owned a Dodge talked about how bad they were. I always thought they were a very good truck. I still do. Even though my last one was rusting to the ground. I Attribute a lot of that to washing it once a year, whether it needed it or not. Since I live in one of the "Salt Capital" states is the rust belt. I'm gonna take better care of this LT. You don't buy used vehicles by color. I wouldn't have bought this LT if it had been new. Not that fond of silver. But I was very fond of the low miles on it! Don't know now where I was going with this. If you've got that much scratch to put down on a truck. I'd go with a new one, and get the color and options I want. Ed
  4. Keep driving it that way and yer gonna break something.

    I just got this 2016 LT 4x4 four days ago. Been driving Dodges for the last 23 years. It ain't a HEMI, but it ain't bad! Ed Dowdy Fithian IL

    I feel your pain. I just bought this 2016 double cab. I am coming from a 2009 Dodge RAM 1500. That thing was rusting to the ground. I am not bad mouthing RAM. I do live in the rust belt. Just like you like you. I remember seeing on the TV show "Motorweek" last year a segment on putting a water sprinkler under your vehicle in the spring at all four corner. An hour or so each, to rid your ride of the corrosive salts that accumulate over the winter season. The RAM was way beyond that. In fact the frame had rusted so bad, the front fuel tank strap had pulled through it and allowed the fuel tank to nearly fall out of the truck. After I spent $300 getting a plate welded in, Chrysler called and said they had a recall on it... Of course they wouldn't reimburse me the money I had spent on the repair. They said mine wasn't a Chrysler authorized repair. I did allow them to do the recall. At least any subsequent owners wouldn't be saddled with an "unauthorized" repair.

  8. This has been an interesting thread as I just joined this forum today. I just traded my 144k mile '09 RAM for a 2016 LT Double Cab 4x4. Decent stereo/Nav, but nothing like the Alpine system that was in the RAM. I've been a Dodge guy for 20 years. Last Chevy I owned was a 1986 C10. As I work part time for Best Buy I'm gonna have to check with our Car-Fi dept about upgrades. And I'll keep watching here for suggestions.
