The only reasons I'm considering a Ram 2500 is the truck will be lifted and run larger tires (probably 2-4 inches with 35's). I feel the Ram 2500 will be easier and less expensive to lift and the heavier duty components will hold up better than a 1/2 ton truck. Plus, I'm not gonna lie, I simply love the styling of the Ram 2500 and the option of the Mega Cab is great! I do not need or want the Cummings diesel. I know it's a great engine, but my reasearch leads me to believe I'd have problems with it as a daily driver going short distances, plus the cost would blow my budget.
So, my question is this. What kind of gas milage are you owners of the 2010 thru 2012 Hemi powered Ram 2500's getting? Also, what gears do you have and what tire size are you running?
I will be in the same boat next year, could use the 2500 pay load, like the fact that you get a full size cab with a full size box, but my next truck is going to get pretty big and I think big tires would murder the mpg's but I dont have use for a cummins also and like you, have read not good things about driving them only 10 miles at a time...
