So I am just about to purchase a 2012 Laramie Longhorn. This truck is freaking amazing to drive and I am anxious to tart decking it out with options to make it something like a search and rescue truck. I saw online some youtube videos Chevy does to show how their truck is so superior, but it didn't go up against the 2012 3500 crew cab. I can't wait to see what kind of power and strengthening I can get into this truck and just take it on a long haul across the country to New York with a 14000lb toy hauler. and drive it up in the mountains. I would love to see people's faces as I drive this beast on the highways as it is a pretty darn good looking truck and I can't wait to show the thing off.

Chevy doesn't make trucks, they just make cars with big trunks :Na_Na_Na_Na: (quoting Don Garlits from a road test TV show he had). Seriously though, while I haven't driven a new truck 'cause I won't be buying one, I'm quite sure you'll be excited about your new one for a very long time -- I still think of mine as "my new truck". I only pay cash for vehicles & I keep 'em until they can't be fixed anymore. With that in mind, in 1998 I had enough $$$ to order a Dodge / Cummins diesel 2500HD 4x4 & when my lady friend asked how I could justify spending so much on a new truck I said that's simple -- 20 years from now I'll still be driving it (my last truck lasted 20). Well, it's been 14 so far & you couldn't get me to sell my Dodge with a gun to my head !!

Personally I like the looks of the "2nd generation" Dodges best, but of course the main factor in my choice (I like Fords too) was the Cummins engine -- I only wish I knew then what I know now about the blankety-blank injector pump they used from 1998 1/2 thru 2001. But that's fixed now & the truck will do just exactly what I ordered it for, including towing heavy trailers where there aren't any roads. And carry 5200 lbs. of concrete test cylinders :smileup: Now that the bigger engine is out your new one should do even better. Enjoy!
