Anyone see the new Sterling Bullet one ton trucks? Perfect for this Biz...They come as Cab and Chasis so they are ready for whatever bed you want to put on them....

Then again they are Rebadged Dodge 4500 and 5500 Trucks...

I'm personally holding out on a Brand New Truck until the One-Ton Toyota Tundra Duallys come out later this year or early next....

I'll stick with the Ford SuperCab F350 PowerStroke for now... If all that thing is - is a Dodge under a pretty logo, I'll pass... Dealt with one too many Dodge electrical nightmares and transmission changes... Been driving one (F-350) and an F-450 (SuperDuty) for half a season, and got absolutely no complaints -- both of em were pullin' sons of -----'es if you ask me...

Although I might be tempted on the Toyota deal if it came in a Diesel -- the last Toyota I had was a good little truck... drove it till the fenders fell off - but that thing still ran--

I'll take a cab and chassis, LWB, duallie, just for tooling to the mall on sundays. As soon as petrol is back to one buck, the gallon.

That doesn't look too bad but I think i will just stick to my old trucks, plus when im allowed to use it my wife bought an f-350 super-duty crew cab last summer so im pretty well covered. I bought a flat-bed for her truck but she refuses to have it put on stating her reason as..."it's not pretty". See what i have to live with[^]

Offer to airbrush the bed in her favorite design [}:)] Are/is you/she happy with the F350? I never liked Fords -- still don't, but their PowerStroke F-series trucks have left a new impression on me to say the least.

Ya...thats an idea. We like our Fords. The Power-Stroke is 1 hell of an engine in my opinion.

At the moment, that is a SEMA show dog and not a production vehicle.

From what I saw, it looks pretty sharp -- I read a little on a forum that shows more pics, and the only thing I noticed is they are still having problems getting the HP/Torque response straightened out vs. what the Dodge/Cummins package can do... So I'd have to say that if they get the performance straightened out like they did with their gas burners, it will definitely be a force to be reckoned with!
