Happy trails to all.

Just ordered a GMC 3500 SRW Duramax. Considered a 2500 but the upgrade to 3500 was only another $1200. Don't get me wrong, $1200 is nothing to take lightly, but in the scheme of the total cost of the truck it wasn't that significant and provides the flexibility to pull most anything I'll ever want to pull in the future.

I went with the '14 Ram 2500 after test driving the Ford and Chevy diesels in the same class. Once my wife got involved and rode in all the trucks...the Ram was her favorite. The ride in the Ram, with the rear coils, is much more pleasant than any of the others...IMHO. So between the ride, the interior on the Limited, and the Mega Cab for the extra room for the kiddos...the selection was made. We haven't looked back and really enjoy the truck, especially when towing. I don't have white knuckles anymore from driving wife's SUV!

This should be my next truck as well. Good choice! The Duramax is very reliable without the Cummins high maintenance costs and problems with the O2 sensors costing a fortune to replace every few months, plus the overheads, plus the EGR... I got to tell you, I could never buy a pickup that is "pre-rusted" from the factory... I wish I had never owned a Cummins. TOTAL JUNK! Hey guys, don't shoot the messenger. it isn't my fault you bought junk! I made the same mistake! But never again!!!

I've got the fever too. Got it bad. I almost cashed in some retirement money (stupid, I know) to buy a truck just this last Christmas.

I calmed down though, and now I'm going to wait until next Christmas. I won't have to cash in retirement to get the cash, and with the equity I have in my current truck, I'll come out of it pretty good.

Lookin at the Ram 2500 gasser with 6.4L Hemi. I have VERY short commute to work, and this truck would give me more than enough payload and towing capacity for whatever we plan to get in the future. The 3500 is also not out of the question if I can make the deal I need and get the options I want. With our current setup, we're right at the max on the truck; it'll be nice to have plenty of wiggle room with the new truck, especially with the cross-country trips we have planned in the next few years. We started with the big trailer, so we'll likely go smaller next time we buy...

That's funny you are dogging on the cummins and calling it pre rusted when clearly the picture you posted is a half ton, and doesn't even have a cummins

LOL!!! You obvious failed to read the post concerning the rust problem. Two different problems. My post about the Cummins is a different issue. It has nothing to do with rust on a Ram, although my post about the rust is a common problem concerning ALL Rams no matter which model. Don't believe it just go look! I did and I will NEVER buy one! Period! If you want to go ahead. Jezz, I though it was common knowledge that all Dodge/Ram pickups were rust buckets and have been for over 50 years. If you bought one, I'm sorry for you.

We get it you don't like ram, no need to beat the matter to death. You are entitled to your opinion as am I. I respect peoples opinions and preferences even if they differ from mine, you obviously do not. The op was looking for opinions on trucks, so I gave mine, and you disrespected it. If you have nothing positive to contribute be quiet. I don't appreciate your comments of feeling sorry for ram owners and common knowledge. Grow up and stop talking childish.
