Well it looks like my budget will be blown for the 2500 RAM cummins.
I will have to buy a used 2013-14 2500 Ram diesel off Craigslist or some other on-line sales from a private person, no sales tax or doc fees.

The specs on the 1500 EcoDiesel from a towing perspective aren't all that impressive. Payload and towing capacity were significantly less than the 5.7 hemi. Max towing is between 8-9,000 lbs. and payload is around 1,300 with crew cab and gets a little better with the quad. 5.7 is around 10,800 and 1,700 lbs payload.

The EcoDiesel does get close to 30 mpg so I've read, which would be nice.

This would be pulling my #7500lbs trailer GVW around 10,000lbs. I wonbder if the 1500 can pull it with the small diesel? I don't plan on upgrading to a heavier TT later.

How do you get bypass the sales tax? In my state, you pay tax on the value when you take it to get it registered, unless you have a receipt for the sales tax.

There are other 1/2 tons that might fit your needs. Lots of info here on the ecoboost with Hd towing payload package would be one that might do it.

The Dodge Ram would also be my daily driver to, that's why I was looking at something cheaper on gas when I'm not pulling something. Maybe I can get airbags for the truck or something to add a little ump.

I am not sure of the market where you are at but I am in Utah and I bought a 2012 Ram 2500 6.7 diesel in October 2014. It had low miles (6,700) and warranty left when I bought it and it was significantly cheaper than new. Why not just go with a lower mileage used 6.7? Is that an option? Mine is my daily driver as well.

yeah, I've lost too much money on buying cars high and selling them low, not good.
I will be looking for a late model used Dodge Big Horn 4X4 2500 6.7 diesel engine.
I'm hoping I can find one that is still under factory warranty. My budget is $35K

That wont be too hard depending on your market. That is right at what I paid for mine last October and in Utah there is a booming sellers market for trucks.
