Definitely thanks for sharing. It doesn't come in a 2door does it?

Well, for the price, and in the future, that is exactly what I would be looking for. 4 doors are for construction working trucks for a work truck, not for driving around town or working by one's self t haul things, so yes, I want a 2 door pickup truck, and this diesel sound more in my size over a giant pickup (more of a big pickup by my standards).  Heck, a wrecked one, I would pull a Dakota body off the frame, box and beef it up, and install it in a Dakota (wish they had built that)!

I can get you one hell of a deal here, you pick it up there.  Actually, you can pick one out and buy that one through my guy.  Nothing in it for me other than a thanks.  The savings goes into your pocket.

Thanks for the info, will keep it in mind at a later date, too many projects to think about a new vehicle (story of our lives, right)?

Nice truck!  My understanding is that it's a VM Motori built engine, biggest diesel maker in the world and a Division of Fiat-Chrysler. Injection and engine management is Bosch. 
That's my kind of car!
