One heck of a medium duty truck

ReviewCummins standard output, 5 spd with NO problems, never been back to the dealer. Milage 15-17 with a lead foot. I've had 4 tons of dirt in the box several times, drove 25 miles and it did well. I can tow a 12K 5th wheel trailer all day at 75 with 12 mpg. I was a Chevy man, but I had a lot of bad luck with 'em. I hope to buy a new '03 3500 Dodge Cummins HO soon. I think the '01s & '02s are more HD than the '03s. My last truck was a '96 2500 V-10 & doubled my milage with the Cummins, but the v-10 was GREAT. Dodge/Cummins is the only medium duty rated truck on the market.
Best FeaturesCummins engine, great 5 spd tranny, great AC, htr, comfortable, functional roomy interior, great visibility, HEAVY duty, reliable, good MPG, durable exterior, good looking, fun to drive for a big pickup.
Worst FeaturesGet one with a limited slip diff. A good HD automatic would be nice.
