You are right. Too many people compare the ED to heavy duty truck. I think that is partly due to the lack of anything to compare it with in it's own class. My comments earlier weren't to say that the...

Seems like you don't remember that until 1998.5 model year, the 5.9 cummins didn't have as much hp as this engine. Those trucks towed 10k plus pounds all day long with no problems, and it only had a...

The 5.0 cummins isn't a good fit for a half ton truck. It has more torque than any half ton transmission and differentials are spec'ed to handle, but not enough hp/tq to play in the big leagues, 2500...

In other words, you don't know that best fuel efficiency is below peak torque rpm.

Jeep Garage forum has some people inside JNAP that are keeping close tabs on diesel production. Check it out. I've been following it over there to keep up with the latest on the JGC.

No Thank You! I can build a tradesman with 3.92's and an 8spd. That's probably what I'll do. I'm not big on flash.

100% Correct. The Fed keeps buying 85 billion a month in bad debts to keep the stock market artificially high. Just postponing the next great depression.

Ram's website won't let me build an 8spd 3.92 express. The 8hp70 kicks out the gear ratio change. Anybody else getting the same?

Gear ratio not listed. I would assume it's the 3.55. I think it's standard on diesels.

Just the main page. www.ramtrucks.com redirects me to http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/#ram_1500 which still has issues. The direct links you posted to the 1500, 2500, and 3500 page all work well.

Donlen has changed the diesel production date 3 times this week. SPP seems to have the inside scoop. His info has been spot on so far.
