Hi Guys/gals: newbie here from Manitoba Canada,spent the day test driving a new Laramie ecodiesel in bright cherry red,what a driving experience,coming from my 04.5 ram turbo cummins this ecodiesel drives like a dream,one would be hard pressed to tell it was a diesel,acceleration is great although i did notice what i think was a bit of turbo lag while under light acceleration,my wife and i fell in love with it,now to decide to sign on the dotted line with all discounts etc... $48,500.00 CDN the exact same truck in the Hemi was $44,700.00 with my commuting this is a no brainer, and with a diesel they were designed for tweaking!! Blue spark tuners!! etc... will let you all know on monday if it is in the driveway,the dealer also has a grey SLT 3.0 that could be ours for $35,000.00 out the door but options are sparse,DECISIONS,DECISIONS:)

Thanks accused, it is indeed a 2004.5 5.9 h.o. cummins that has served me very well but we don't trailer anymore and the constant bucking of the 3/4 ton down the highway on my daily commute is beating me up. my comparison was between the hemi in Laramie trim and the eco diesel,and if i plan on keeping the eco diesel for 8-10 years i will make my initial up cost back..

I do in fact use a 338 Lapua for my career[military C14 designation timberwolf]:D but i don't personally own one.i am currently having a 338 edge built.
