    2012 Dodge 2500 4X4 SLT crew cab, with 5.7 Hemi.

    Does a great job of pulling our 8.5X20 enclosed. Mpg is not very good but I knew that before I bought it.

    I'm really enjoying this truck, have about 1000 miles on it so far.

    Has a ton of power, more than enough for what I'm pulling. :)

    MPG does stink, oh well, my wife's Camry makes up for it.

    Btw, my last Dodge 2500 had a Cummins. I didn't want another one with all the emissions junk.

    She is pretty even though shes not black. Were sold on the diesels here too my new ram has it and all my future ones will too. The other area I would have to do differently is when I finally do get replacement pick ups for the owners they will be 3500s because under 10k gvw here has to go through emissions.

    Gotta ask, what kind of mpg are you getting? Loaded, unloaded? Thanks!

    Nice truck! We have an 08 which is quite similar. Our trucks get traded in every 4 years or about 100 000 km, so we backed out of the diesels too. Pulling around an open trailer with a few mowers on it is nothing for the Hemi. We had a 5.9 cummins in the last truck and it was nice, but the repairs were killer. With that said, the Hemi doesn't like the dump trailer or the skid steer. So chances are we'll be getting a 6.7 soon!
