For the love of god do not follow suit with all the other automakers! Heres the breakdown of my 2012 Cummins and why I bought it:

Highs:
gobs of power and build like a real diesel should (Pre-urea, getting a DPF delete)
6-speed G-56 manual trans (as manual as they come, DO NOT DROP THIS OPTION!)
selectable 2wd/4wd with NO AWD, AWD gays up an HD model
solid axle front end

Lows:
non locking diff, would like to see at least one locker on the Ram
traction/stability (let me get into this further, its great you can take traction off, but why is the stability pump linked to cruise? I need to be in 4x4 low just to have all the safety bull gone... The most fun I ever had in my truck is when the pump ran a code and failed so I didnt have cruise nor stability... Thinking hard on breaking this again just so I can be done with stability!)

Long story short, as long as Ram keeps a hand-operated multi-ratio cog swapper and a foot modulated power output regulator in their trucks I''l always be loyal to Ram.
