Well.... there's only two god things about a Dodge truck, you can fit big tires with little to no lift and Cummins. Yep, that's about it :mrgreen:
It's all about what you like and drive. I hate our Libby, but the wife loves it so I'm stuck with it.

I like it. If I was gonna buy a truck, that would be the #1 choice. Straight axle and coil springs is a winning combo IMO. I say bob the back of the bed and long arm the front suspension.

I want to swap in dana 60 axles. I already have them just need to have the gears set up. I am burning through wheel bearings every 8 or 9 months (usually less than 10k miles).
This one had about 5k on it when it spit out the bearings, locked up on the interstate at 70 mph and sent me into the median. Sad thing is i havent had this truck in 4 wheel drive in over 2 years, other to climb up our hill in the winter. The mud in the pics is from the wifes grandmother road to her farm.

The biggest problem is the leverage from the wheels i run a 15 x 10 with 3.75 backspace I have been trying to sell this set up for a while to go back to the stock wheels with 35 inch mts.
