Your truck should have no problems. We ordered ours this summer. Very exciting. Enjoy!

You should be fine with the 3/4 ton. The 6.0 might get a bit thirsty, but thats just the nature of the beast.

Was told by one dealer that the "HT" stood for "half ton" as in truck....if that's the case, you should be ok with a 3/4 ton.
