Default The definitive dual band mobile thread

I am looking for a second mobile rig. I am pretty much committed to a true dual band radio again, just don't see how I can have anything else now that I've tasted the good life... so before I just get another FT8800, curious what else is out there and if anyone has experience or knows someone with something better. Here is what I've found:

Alinco DR-635T ~$390.

ALINCO 144/440 MHz Dual-Band Mobile Transceiver, 50/35 Watts, RX: 87.5 ~ 107.995, 108 ~ 173.995, 335 ~ 479.995 MHz, 200 Memory, Cross-Band Repeat, AM Aircraft Band Reception, Dual Receive

  • VHF/UHF full duplex operation includes V/U and U/V modes.
  • Cross-band repeater function (where permitted: standard on DR-635T)
  • 200 Memory channels
  • H/M/L power output settings- VHF: 50/25/5W UHF: 35/20/5W
  • Large 6 character alphanumeric display
  • Selectable display color illumination (Blue, Violet or amber)
  • Internal duplexer - single antenna connector
  • Removable control head can be remotely mounted or allow transceiver to be inverted for optimal speaker placement
  • Expanded receive range includes FM broadcast band (WFM)
  • Power supply voltage display
  • Theft alarm feature
  • Optional 1200 and 9600 bps packet operation with optional EJ-50U
  • Digital voice communications with optional EJ-47U
  • Optional illuminated DTMF EMS-57 microphone (included with DR-635T) allows direct VFO frequency entry and remote control of transceiver
  • CTCSS & DCS encode and decode plus four different tone bursts
  • CTCSS Tone and DCS scan
  • Programmable VFO and Memory scan modes
  • "Time Out" timer
  • Cable Clone feature
  • AM Aircraft band reception (DR-635T only)
  • Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator
