I've owned 1 diesel truck, and it was nice, when I needed it. I just didn't need it that often, and I made too many "short" trips to use it as a daily driver. At the time, I was told unless driving at least 25/30 miles, better not to drive it at all. Things may have changed. Unless you're pulling through the mountains, I wouldn't be afraid to pull that with my 3.6 Pentastar Ram. The Hemi I had would have been a cake walk.
