I own a dodge ram 2500 with the cummins turbo diesel 24 valve. with 140,000k miles. It pulls all that i have. Nice truck. Rough ride due to the straight axle up front. The seat wear out and tranny slips in o/d going about 50 mph. I love this ride and i'm considering getting a 05 with the cummins. I get 16.5 mpg all the time and 15.5 pulling a full size truck in GA. get the diesel better on gas and sounds like a semi.gas is poor when pulling and downs the gas.
good gas mileage, high in the air, built tough, sounds like a semi with 5 in exhaust,love this truck cant wait for the 05 that i want, 06 gets bad gas mileage 05 gets 19+ 06 gets 15 on a good day,
Dodge needs to work on tranny slippage, and faster get up, ford is faster but can't pull as much, needs to smoke a little more, who wants a diesel that doesn't smoke,
