country-boy will become famous soon enough

Yep, this was a announced last month. I have an '05 Titan, and it hasn't been a bad truck. It hasn't been great either. The rear end is a piece of junk, and this has been well documented. There are other well known issues too.
How they're going to go from a 305 HP engine to this big V-8 Cummins is beyond me. They're going to have to redesign the truck from top to bottom to handle that kind of power. With that level of redesign, there's no way I'd be in line for beta-testing it. It took them at least three years to wring out several issues with the current truck (which is now quite long in the tooth).

I wish them luck. I'll be watching from my own diesel Ram 1500.
