Gorgeous truck.....but does it still fit in the garage with the heavy duty suspension of a 3/4 ton?

I already have once and am about to again. Liked everything about my F150 EB better than my F250 6.7 PSD EXCEPT that the 250 felt more stable towing heavy because of it's weight. If I have to downsize on TT I will- can't get past sacrificing on 10 things for that 1 extra. Plus I'm scared to death to own a diesel out of warranty- and I mean emissions warranty, too, which expires at 50K- because of the exorbitant costs to repair them.

Thank you guys, what made me to get one the wife and I was towing our 5th wheel to Las Vegas and back and getting 7 mpg and 8 to 9 miles on the flat made me rethink this so I wanted to give the diesel a try.

I'm sure you will like the new RAM diesel...Here is a snapshot of my dash after making the X-Country trip from my old home on the CA coast to my new home in NC in my 2500 RAM diesel travelling Rt. 40 the majority of the way granted I was pulling alittle less then 8K

Gas Mileage was 13.0 on the dash but calculating it by hand it was more like 12.0 the toughest part of the trip was fighting headwinds thru parts of Texas and Oklahoma.

Now that's what I'm talking about, man I wish I would have had the diesel when we was going to Vegas but it took me that trip to change my mind. I just can't wait when I can hook up to my 5th wheel I have to take it in for my factory warranty on the middle of Oct.

Hey Big1, aside from the mpg issue, how well did that 6.4 handle your Denali?
