We are upgrading to a Cardinal and will be upgrading our truck and are looking to ya'll for advice
Well, I wanted a 350 but just couldn't find the right one that wasn't a dually, a work truck, or completely loaded. As far as the dually, that was due to my garage size. My truck fits like a glove right now and a dually would've been too wide in the rear. Plus, looking at the tow guides, a one ton SRW actually had 100 lbs LESS tow capacity! (at least in the Ford)

Traffic on the highway was moderately heavy, so I floored the truck, and was doing 30 mph by the time I crossed the road! You just gotta love the low end torque of a diesel engine!
I know the feeling - Every time I ask something of my 3500 RAM Dually, it never ceases to amaze me what kind of power it delivers.....
