This truck has been the best thing I have ever bought. I work this truck hard pulling trailers and plowing snow. With the ho cummins mated to the 6 speed nothing wll phase it. I strongly recomend this if you need a good work truck that won't give up.The only thing I have done to it is put a 4 inch exhaust and a cold air intake.

Transmissions on the Dodge's are
notorius for having problems and
failures. There is NOT enough power,
simple little things go wrong all the
time. I had the Air Bag light come on
and the cruise quit working right away.
It makes strange noises. Trans and
Transfer case do NOT like to work
properly in the winter time! Dodge
did a terrible job of protecting them
from snow build up which causes
problems. You need at least 500lbs in
the bed before it will ride like a
normal pickup truck.
Electronic cruise control is now offered for the Cummings turbodiesel models with a manual transmission, improved braking systems with standard ABS come on all 2500 and 3500 Rams, two new exterior colors debut, and child seat anchors are mounted on the rear of the cab. A high-output Cummings turbodiesel model, with a six-speed transmission, 245 horsepower and 505 ft-lbs. of torque, is offered in addition to a slightly improved 235-horsepower/460 ft-lbs. version, available with a manual or automatic tranny.
