This is by far the best truck I have ever owned. I deliver RV's all over the country and drive about 180,000 miles a year. I have owned this truck for less than a year and have had no problems with it. I keep up with the regular scheduled maintenance for the truck and it keeps me running. On average while driving empty at 70 mph. I get 23 mpg. and loaded I can average 14 mpg. The only other truck that I have found that can compete with this is the Chevy Duramax. They also get good fuel mileage but is seriously lacking in torque.

Starting with a 91' Dakota I graduated to bigger Dodge trucks over the years, a '95 Ram 1500 Club, '03 Ram 1500 Quad and now a '05 3500 turbo diesel. The comfort is unbelievable for a HD truck and given extensive spinal surgeries this is a must! I test drove Ford and Chevy 1 ton trucks and just was not happy with the comfort and sound level of the the other Diesels. Cummins has done a great job in increasing power while reducint the "typical" diesel sound and keeping things simple enough so the average shade tree mechanic can easily work on the engine. Overall package offers most "bang for the buck" and excellent build quality.
