I'm actually surprised this thread hasn't come up yet - it's even in the description of this forum "The Cove"

Anyway, DE boats and pickups go hand in hand and I KNOW some of you guys must have some nice trucks so post em up!

Here's mine:

2003 Dodge 2500 Cummins leveled, Duratracs, SMARTY programmer, AMSOIL everywhere, BD stage 4 48RE trans, GN hitch, all kinds of lights, etc. Bought brand new now has 215,000 miles - best truck I've owned


Truck in current form:

Couple years ago - much more typical day to day use. 4000lb CAT D330 bare block headed to the scrap yard from a research vessel I worked on repowering. Still 1" from the stops!!

I had a '96 Dodge 2500 w/ a a 360 for almost 14 years. I'd probably still have it if I hadn't driven it through a river of seawater the first year I had it. Part of living on the Outer Banks.

'Course not :cool: - but I'd venture a guess that it's more common than not in Maine at least if you are using the boat for work. Love the full size blazers - can't beat a 350.

Nice trucks, guys.

Totally agree - finally most of New England is having a good winter. I have a college friend that lives & plows in Salem, MA & he's having a great year.
