Yeah it does take a while to get used to switching rigs. When I work for my dad there are days where I jump from a 98 2500 cummins extcab-reg box, 08 f350 powerstroke SCLB, 04 2500 QCLB hemi.. and then back to my truck.. Big difference in each one... And a pain in the ass to find the proper seat and mirror positions -.-

Cummins won't burn any rubber, but could pull a building down with it, 2500 Hemi is fast as hell and touchy, Ford has a mind of its own sometimes.

I am learning how touchy that pedal can be and how the steering seems tighter so it tends to wander with me driving lol. I also have a decent amount of squeak from the front suspension but I haven really looked into that yet.
