“I am an active duty U.S. Marine Gunnery Sergeant and do most of the wrenching on my ’06 Dodge 3500 Mega Cab myself in the driveway,” wrote GySgt Aaron K.

I am a good example of a working-class enthusiast who has to make sure the bills are paid before searching for the best deal and then buying parts. My truck has 140,000 miles on it. It’s a beautiful truck, but I use it like it’s a truck. When I sit and look through the most current issues of the diesel mags, my son is right there (magazine in hand) looking, too. Every time he sees a black Mega Cab, he asks, ‘Daddy is that your truck?’ I tell him, ‘Nope, that’s not it. One day it will be in there, you just gotta keep looking.’ I just think it would be really awesome if he opens to a page to see my truck in your magazine one day.”
