So far I've loved my Diesel. I've had no mechanical problems and my truck has about 115,000 miles on it, but I've only owned it a year. The only thing I feel I'm giving up with a 3/4 ton is the ride quality. In my opinion, most of the ride quality is lost with the tires. The tires are E-rated, which means they are suppose to run around 60psi. You could put a lower weight rated tire on them, which would help the ride, but thats probably a bad idea.

I can remember seeing a Cummins at the Mopar Nats when they first came out. I can't remember the exact year, 1988 or 1989. This guy had a sign in it that said "yes its fast, yes it tows anything, yes it gets good mileage, yes I'd trade it for a Hemi Cuda".
