This truck with a diesel will move mountains. With a travel trailer (7000 lbs.) in tow and a 600 lbs. quad in the bed, this baby rides like a dream. You can't feel anything behind you. Granted, the truck rides a little rough when empty, but when loaded, it smoothes right out. It's designed for the load and it shows. Loaded down, mountains rarely slow you down, the torque is awesome. I've driven Silverados, but go with the Dodge.
This is a drive all day truck. The comfort and smooth loaded ride make any trip a joy. I love the UConnect hands free phone system. The stereo is top notch and plays my mp3 cds. Being a diesel, there is little maintenance. The flip up tow mirrors are fantastic.
This is another great truck from Dodge. The seats are a little on the firm side, but adjusting them every few hours makes the trips bearable. Pulling a 25' trailer grossly weighted at 8000 pounds, 35000 miles a year, I don't even know it's there. A change of the exhaust and the power and mileage gets better without voiding the warranty. :)
Add as an option the trailer tow command system and a higher GVW hitch like the F truck has
Just sold my '03 Ford fF150 fx4 and bought this Dodge Laramie QC 4x4 Diesel and I am in love! This is an awesome truck for the money! I have never had a diesel before and was a bit nervous about the noise and ride quality but after having this truck for a while I just find any excuse to get out and drive it. The fuel mileage is at 17 mpg now but will get better as time goes on. Dodge is the way of the future! Grab it by the horns.
I have loaded it down with 3+ tons of tile and it handled as if nothing was in it. It has been on various trip which required 4X4, with a quick turn of the nob I was climbing a muddy hill or going through sand. Size does matter, the room in the back fits 3 full sized adults (6' plus) and they had plenty of leg room, without touching the front seats.
The roomy interior is everything you would associate mega cab to. And the storage in this truck is amazing.
The front cup holder does not really allow for anyone to sit in the middle.
