I upgraded from a 2006 2500 4x4 CTD 6 speed manual. The difference between these trucks is night and day. I feel the build quality has improved over the 06 Ram, interior materials seem to be better. The 08 Ram has a lot more power then the 06 and the exhaust brake is a nice feature.The leather seats are nicer and more comfortable then the cloth. Ride is actually softer in the 3500 then the 2500. The truck handles better as well. Cup holder still sucks. Wish they would improve it. Engine is very quiet, more quiet then a 07 Duramax. You cannot hear the engine at highway speeds, the wind noise is louder! Over all the truck is very quiet and refined. Laramie package is a must!
Quiet more powerful Cummins, exhaust brake, sound proof glass. Sunroof, Satellite radio, steering wheel audio controls, trip computer, heated seats, power rear slide window. No diesel smell! You can almost stick your nose in the exhaust pipe while it's running, and not smell a thing, Honest!
Cup holders!!, come on Dodge make better cup holders. Improve fuel economy, like the 5.9 had.
