Finally made the decision to buy a newer truck.  I have been a GMC/Chevy guy my whole life but the orange Rams are really nice.  

My wife made a good point that pulling up in a bright orange truck to buy an Allis or Simplicity will seriously hurt my negotiating chances...haha

I still have my 2002 GMC Sierra Quadrasteer, 284k mile and still runs excellent, that was going to be painted orange, but life is very busy now so taking on big projects is more stressful than fun. The Dodge has far more cab room than my Sierra so that was an important improvement.  Hopefully the Dodge is strong like my Sierra

Dad had a 90's Dodge truck and the automatic transmission went out at around 100,000 miles. Had a 2000's Dodge truck and same thing happened to that. He went back to Ford after that.

Wife has a 05 Dodge truck that she has used and abused with around 200,000 miles on it. Only real problems its had is wiring problems. A common problem complained about it seems . Has to do with corrosion in the connections at the firewall. Heard this from other friends that own different Dodge and Chrysler products with some age on them. Havnt heard if either of thee problems have continued beyond the 2000's into the teens or not.

My biggest concern was Dodge's issues with their trannys for years.  Seems they have fixed it from being common problem.  Electrical scares me with all makes and models.  Damn vehicles these days are so electronically reliant that one little electrical issue causes overall big problems

On the wifes 05 its the window wipers that have the electrical gremlins. Didnt do it till the last 4 years or so.  When you want them to work, sometimes they just wont come onsm00. Other times when you dont need them, and the switch is in the off position..... they just start up and run a few swipes.O.o

That is odd....I thought the same about my wipers until dealership said there are sensors that sense for rain. Wipers increase and decreases the speed automatically

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
