In just a couple of weeks I will have owned my gasoline powered 5.7L V-8 Hemi Power Wagon for 7 years and still love it!

I'm pretty much a Ford man with an '06 chev 2500 with 6.0 gas (300 hp I think). It was fine with my old trailer which had a dry weight of 4200# regardless of terrain. With my new trailer (6400# dry), its fine on the flat lands, but would like a little more in the mountains.

Don't know if your set on a 3/4 ton but on the Fords there is only around $750 difference for the 1 ton. Don't know about the other makes.

RAM, 2500 Cummins Turbo Diesel - It's The Bomb!! My 5.7 Hemi 1500 was great but pulling the TT with the 2500 is soooo much better and easier on the driver and the driven.

See signature. I'm just a Dodge/Cummins guy, but mostly because I have trusted friends that work in the parts and service department of a Dodge dealer and have taken good care of me over the years. Plus, the Cummins has way less moving parts than their V-8 diesel counterparts. Simpler is always better.

Glenn, as a fellow Dodge owner and a Jeeper from way back--seeing your water fording pic almost made me jump out of my chair. The Jeeper's Mantra: "water and mud bad, rocks good." I hope you change your axle, t-case, and trans fluids often!

I love my Ram Hemi. In fact, after seeing Glenn5995's pictures I think I will go drive it right now. Signing off.
