Condolences to the family that Dusty so much enjoyed and talked about.
We bought are dodge ram 1500s around the same time and another employee bought one too. We would line them up every morning parked side by side and have many discussions and story's about our trucks.
I remember we had a few problems that the dealer could not find and you know Dusty . Did you check this and that ? And come to find out it was only a small problem that he had and found himself. Many kind memories and stories about fishing . Just wanted to share. Dust will always be awesome .
