CCSB Hemi Dodge 4x4

I was DD the other night and I had the opportunity to drive an 06' dodge CCSB 4x4 with a Hemi. It had 65k miles on it. I was DD for a friend who was in the military, and shipping out to the sandbox today. I provided the funding for a good "last" night at home, and offered to drive his truck home( ~6 miles away) to a safe place and watch movies with the boys.

Wow. Needless to say im glad i own and drive a Ford. His Dodge's brake rotors shook the truck so bad my buddy could see it from behind, and it was so gutless, im sure a prius could have passed us without trying. Only 3 speakers worked, and the trans had issues shifting. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt, but seeing only 65xxx miles on the odo, it wasn't going to happen. Did i mention the power steering was non existent at anything below 2k rpms?

Im not sure where to post this but this forum sounded good. I told him if I still have my truck when he gets back, I'll make him a deal. He tried to pay me for being DD for him but that wasnt going to happen. I was just happy he had a safe, good time at the bar. Not to mention he simply ruled in pool. I hope he makes it back, but if not, Him, and I can rest knowing what he stood for.

IDK where this should be posted. Mods, feel free to move.

I had a 96 Dodge monster truck (1500 on 1 tons with 44" boggers) and i never had any issues with anything. Edit: Other than the paint. Lol


I knew Dodges were bad, my cousin has an 08 6.7 that has gone through quite a few ball joints, but damn.

This truck was bone stock, and i couldnt help but shake my head. I thought these trucks were supposed to take out 6.0's? it couldnt even get out of its own way.

My wife own's an 02 Ram 1500 with the 5.9L 360 (since they didn't offer the Hemi in the 1500 in 02) and she has had power steering issues. It seems every couple of years, the hose goes bad on it and has to be replaced.

Yeah the older HEMI trucks weren't so good. Now they're not bad.
