Review

I needed a truck to pull a 12,500 lb trailer and this is it. I bought the new "600" diesel with a six speed manual. This truck pulls great and the manual shifts very smooth.


Favorite Features

The diesel motor, six disk CD changer, folding trailer mirrors, and Lots of interior storage


Suggested Improvements

A dedicated place to mount the trailer brake controller. The front cup holers are in a bad place (the manual shifter gets in the way).

Review

great truck does a great job on fuel economy averaging 20 plus miles per gallon and maintence is a big plus oil change every 15000 miles verses competition 3000 miles never gave me any trouble very reliable and power is also very important it has more power than compatition but i wouldn't mind having more power


Favorite Features

I love new cummins diesel especially when it comes to work, I like those new large disc brakes and that its much quiter than erlier models


Suggested Improvements

would like to have larger fuel tank approximately 42 gallons, softer seats, geared slightly higher when you are driving 75 mph that your engine is running 1900 rpm this would increase fuel economy when your going out of town and don't have to stop for fuel as often

Review

Had my 04 for 3.5 years now. Have had to replace 3 lights (1-fog, 1 headlight and 1 brake light) and the lift pump. Replaced my Michelins with Bridgestones and am still "paying" for them. Cost me almost 5 mpg. Still get 22+ , but the 28 @ 62 mph was pretty sweet. She loves 75 and 80 , but you better have deep pockets , 17 mpg empty 10.5 pulling fully enclosd car trailer. Bought it when I retired hoping it would easily outlast me. So far so good .


Favorite Features

Raw power, rides like a "caddy" loaded.


Suggested Improvements

Needs much "taller" final drive for us highway dwellers. Gear it for 1650 rpm @ 75 mph.
