Never before, but after owning a 2001 f250 7.3, a 2004 f250 6.0, a 2012 Toyota Tundra, I finally broke from being closed minded and bound to product loyalty, I just bought a Ram 3500 diesel with the aision tranny. All I can say is Wow. I also tow skid steers and mini x equipment for my job with my truck. I have never had as much pure fun towing as I do now, 865 ft.lbs, 385 hp. Jake brakes, this dually is the best truck I have owned. Light freight haulers who haul freight for a living choose the ram 3500 7 out of 10. Do your home work - test drive - each one, yes you can actually test drive each truck. But, I will say this, you are buying, you will need to choose what you like, so do your home work first before you buy. Happy camping!!!!

No news from the police on the stolen truck....I have one more week to go so if it isn't recoverd and is fixable by next Friday the insurance company is going to settle the claim...In the mean time the wife and I have looked at the Dodge and the Ford and so far and between those two the nod goes to Dodge hopefully will be able to go check out the Chevy's this weekend and make some decisions in the next week or so.

So should I buy a gas or oil burner? Which is better for pulling 70,000 lbs up steep mountain grades? My dad has a Toyota 22r 4 banger we have not changed the oil since 1992. Wills pull the barn off the foundation....going that route I think. Might need a slider hitch.....

lol don't need to change the oil when they burn so much you can change on the fly.

X2 on that I have owned a lot of diesel engine trucks 6 to exact 2 chevys and 4 Ford F350s but after test driving the 2015 Ram 3500 6.7L with the Aisin transmission I made the change to my first Ram 3500 6.7L with Aisin transmission towing our 18,000 lb. 5er and love it so far. It doesn't slow down for any hills and is a quiet smooth ride and love the engine brake. I've never had a Ram but I'm glad I changed. 16 mpg or better non towing and 9.5 mph towing in hills and 11 towing out of the hills.
