I know that...I was not about to get technical in my post, i wanted to keep in simple for people
but mercedes diesels are not that bad, I don't think they are as durable as a cummins, but they get really good mileage and they are a very smooth diesel that I know of...
And Leslie, the only crappy transmissions are on the gas rams, those transmissions bite ***. Like I said in my post, they last a long, Long, LONG time if you treat em well.
Nate, you made one hell of a choice. Have fun pulling people out of those ditches. It does have 4WD eh? I hope.
