Hey Buddy
Pickups are great. Used to drive a Dodge Ram diesel last year in my previous job. 750 Nm of torque. Also I've test driven and SRT 10....thats a crazy truck. Dakota with Hemi engine was the most fun truck.

the Lighting is not the fastest production truck ...
its the Dodge SRT-10...
I think the Escalade Pick up is the best looking of all ...

Admitted, they look nice. But I'd like to see them take a corner.

Edmund, the AR Constructions truck does look awesome. I keep dreaming of buying a twin cab 207 and "pimpin" it up. But this, like my RD 350, is just a dream...

i think currently the best proper manly pickup-trucks are the ones of DODGE, they even have a model with the QUADRASTEER! thats an amazing thing for vehicles that size!
