Flyrotor,

I checked the numbers on that link. 200 lbs extra payload over a 150 MaxTow and 500 extra pounds of rig on a stripped down work truck with manual gear box at the same price I could get the 150FX4 nicely appointed for the family, I'll take the 6.2 gasser.

I don't know what regen is, (I had 7.3s years ago) knew there was another reason I switched to Dodges............. LOL

You need to have your truck looked at, that is not normal. Mine only goes into regen once every 300-400 miles and I only drive 6 miles to work everyday. If it does it more during damp weather I would guess you have a bad sensor somewhere.

Do you use a diesel additive?

How often do you fill up with bio-diesel?

How often do you use Low Sulfur (not ULS) diesel?

I also found this listing from a local dealer, this is a brand new 2012 model Ram 2500 CTD, 6 spd manual, 4x4, 8ft bed, cloth interior, $36,705

New 2012 Ram 2500 For Sale | Mountain Home ID

I can find these deals every day on these brand new trucks.
I wasn't comparing a stripped down diesel to a loaded EcoBoost.

Starting late 07 when Dodge switched from the 5.9 to the 6.7 they got DPF as well and they sure had their crosses to bare back then too. There were a lot of very unhappy owners in the 1st couple years of the 6.7. Drove our local Service manager nuts.

True. There was a class action lawsuit against Dodge over that.

EVERY manufacturer has it's issues.

My 05 Dodge had a catalytic converter but no EGR system.

I thought current Dodge models did not have the regen system either?
My duramax 07 LBZ has no catalyst or particulate filter.

Just buy a gas 1/2 ton and if it is not strong enough spend your money on something else. Diesel owners say diesel, gas owners say gas, whatever you buy I am sure it is going to be ok. But if not o well...people buy what they can afford not what they need

X2!! Just do the research and make sure your within your tow vehicles tow ratings. I loved my gasser at the time and now love my diesel. This forum has a lot of great resources and information but you need to take a little from everyone and make what works for you. There are approx. 38,000 members on this forum and there are a lot more rv owners not on this forum. Even out of 38,000 members there are only a few people that have problems with diesel, gassers, tire blow outs, frame problems, and ?????? The odds have it you will make a good decision.
