    Why a mega cab the regular crew cab ram is still a bigger back seat than GM. The Cummins can drag plenty more than 13,900 and stop it too.

    Google 2020 ram 2500 with Cummins. I got a 13 ram 2500 and it hauls a 17000lb tractor on a 10 ton pintle hitch . Hit the Tow/ Haul and Engine brake and roll on

    Im not here to argue towing. That was just for KRT. Ive already had dealers confirm and the Ram is way behind.....sorry.

    Just need some experience on the 2020 Duramax with the new Allison 10 speed

    Just from folding my 6’1” self in both. I don’t really read truck specs. I go sit in them and drive them. But .3” isn’t going to be a hill of beans. You obviously want want to buy one of those ugly new HDs but are gun shy. Just go buy it, they are all over priced and will pull more than you should with a 3/4ton truck. I drag 15k on the hitch on my ram with no problems. I wouldn’t be scared of 20k on a gooseneck but that is a shit load of weight on single rears.

    I personally like the new trucks. Yes they are all overpriced and therefore I research and ask questions more than the reasonable amount.

    The .3 doesnt mean shit to me......just a fact.

    As for weight, Ive got a 2005 2500 that has 200k miles of pulling way more than everyone told me it should. D3 dozer and 17-19k loads of hay are everyday for it. Never have had an issue thankfully.

    Im just trying to stay in the same ballgame for when I need it.

    Yeah, I got one. It’s a hunk of shit. Worst truck I’ve ever owned. Bought it March 14, 2020, it’s been in my possession 14 days, fucked up at 521 miles the first time, I’ve put one tank of fuel in it since owning it. So far they’ve replaced the fuel pump, right fuel rail, sensors on the left fuel rail, two batteries, fuel line, some shit in the computer and gone through the entire wiring harness. GM is buying it back and I’ll never buy another GM product. I’ve owned 3 GM trucks, the last one 22 years ago. They’ve all been POS that spent more time in the shop than on the road.

    I’m ordering a Ford F-350 CC LWB with the 7.3L gas engine. Fuck these modern diesels.

    I did price a RAM 3500 CC LWB HO CTD Laramie loaded out. Kenersville Dodge in NC gave me the best price by far. If I were going diesel again it’d be a RAM. Plus they got a lot of leftover ‘19’s up there they are dealing on.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    different strokes for different folks. Someone at GM did a lot of acid when they designed those trucks. I would rather have a i6 than a v8. Don’t see many v engines in tractors for a reason...

    This is true. My 6.7l PSD never had one mechanical issue though but they got so much running through those things now I’m not chancing it. 36,000psi on the rails, complex turbo geometry, open the hood on one and you can’t even see the block for the piping and hoses. You can buy a shitload of gas for the $9k delta and replace the engine for the cost of one repair.

    Get the Cummins if you want diesel.

    I Love Our GMC. It is NOT a diesel. It is Loaded and I could live out of it. It will PULL anything I want it to IN COMFORT. Will Not pull a 747 but would bet it could. The tailgate is awesome when I drop her down and plug in the blender for cocktails before Clemson beat the U of suc again. They all have bad units. Just sayin
