I’ve been in the market for a RAM Cummins 2500 for about 20-years. Back when I worked at a Dodge dealership I was allowed to take one home during lunch and I fell in love with that massive torque and classic sound. For me it’s all about the interior and comfort. The main thing holding me back is the outdated auto-transmission shifter and the lack of seat ventilation. I’ve been waiting for them to come out with the tranny dial selector as they have on the 1/2 ton for quite sometime. When Dodge stops dragging their feet on some of some of these very simple features is when I’ll sign on the dotted line.
