After extensive analysis and research I opted to buy one of the last new 5.9 Cummins diesels. What a truck! It is like piloting a freight train. The power is truly awesome. We took the truck on a 1,400 mile trip and got 19 mpg going 75+ with the A/C on. It is very high off the ground. Side steps may be mandatory for some folks. The range on a tank of fuel is amazaing as well - over 600 miles. Got the "Big Horn" package and like all the "Heavy Duty" features. Of course the Sirius Radio is great and the seats are comfortable. The motor is truly and engineering masterpiece. I am glad I purchased one of the last relatively un- smogged Diesels. I fear the enviro reg's may ruin these.
Cummins 5.9! Bold look and ride height. Unstoppable freight train attitude. Solid front axle; stout 4x4 system
Nothing really. It is all that is hyped up to be. But, how about adjustable shocks (like Rancho's) that would allow you to soften the ride a bit when the load is light, no?
