You can't even order a Grand Cherokee with the diesel yet so there are no owners to complain, will not be any for some time. (ordering tenatively starts August 9th)

Still think it will be a big hit in the Ram.

Now I am back to thinking I want to keep my truck. I am driving around on vacation at the beach and am loving hearing the rumble of the Hemi. I only pull about a 550 pound camper and with the 3.92 rear end my truck does it well, it just screams up mountains. The new 6.4 Hemi sounds nice as well. I don't know what I want to do.

The 6.4 is not available in the 1500. You're truck is still very new. Your 42 year old self will be very glad if you go add a percent or two to your retirement/savings allotments right now instead.

I am out getting her cleaned right now. I love my truck I have just always wanted a diesel. I'm scared I'm asking for trouble with this EPA crap as I know nothing about them.

$ wise you are better off waiting for a couple years. take a look at diesel fuel pricing in the winter. goes up every year. this is a small diesel and although the torque numbers are there, i wouldn't be happy trading my hemi for the eco diesel. i am waiting for the turbo pentastar or the "shy cars" they said we would all be driving by now.
