Picking up my New 3500 Dually Long Bed

Probably Tuesday, 1-19-10.
Finally stepping up to the plate, the 2500 simply wasn't enough truck.

I've been over 24,000 with this setup. Over 8000 lbs on the drive tires.

Just had to pull the trigger on the 2010. Pulled my extra equipment off the MC today...Aux fuel tank, Firestone air bags, and SuperGlide sliding 5th wheel.
Will likely be selling the air bags and the SuperGlide. Going to a B&W turnover ball GN.

Where's the best place to buy a B&W GN?

Nice new rig... I am liking that two tone brown. Can't believe I just said that never even looked at brown trucks before but it looks real nice.

It took me by surprise as well!!!
No Flame Red in the HD and don't care for the Inferno Red. I was thinking that I'd like the Rugged Brown, but then I saw the Austin Tan and WOW!!!

Check ebay for the B&W hitch. Thats where I got mine, and it was way cheaper than anything I could find local.

Nice looking rig. So now that the fenders are molded into the truck bed are they metal or still fiberglass? I know if one of mine get munched it's a grand to replace one. But with the new style it looks like a total bed replacement.

Chrysler states that it is cheaper to replace the bed when compared to replacing the fender by its-self.....

I'd have to throw the bs flag if they're saying that. With paint and all, I can't see how that's possible.

With the metal fenders you can repair them easier.... That's what I read.

Fender repair??? I hope I never find out!!!
I am concerned...aware...SCARED!!! I've never had a dually before.
The extra wide hips might be an issue, but I have a little PT Cruiser to buzz around town in. That will be the daily driver.

I can't sleep. I'm picking it up in a couple of hours...is it Christmas yet???

The only prob. I have ever had with my dually was with a 10' long lowboy. I backed up forgetting it was back there, and jack-knifed it into my passenger side dually fender. Couldnt see it out of my mirrors......

That is why you should always walk around your vehicle before backing up. You just never know.

BTW............I love the truck....I so want on.e

I saw a second gen dually stuck in a bank drive-thru once. Wedged between the drive-thru teller machine and an ATM.

It was a landscape crew driving it. Wished I would've had my camera.

Edit: Congrats on the purchase!
