Jassman (and others please)-
Thanks for your response. Funny, as I laid out the points and rated and all of my answers were the same as yours! What I want to know is why you have all 3?
As it relates to your comment on the Dodge transmission - wasn't that a problem before Cummins made the transmissions or is it still a problem?
As mentioned, I was leaning towards the Dodge however, I think for the wrong reasons - b/c it has the best look and is actually the cheapest of the 3. Is this a case of you get what you pay for or would you say this is negligible as they are all high towing capacity diesels and I will only keep the truck for 3 years (so always under warranty)?
My problem with GMC is that I have a 2500HD Gas right now and to go to Diesel will not really let me feel like I am getting a new rig.
My problem with Ford is that their non Lariat packages suck. I don't want leather but I do want the bells and whistles.
