I watched a guy take a brand new one through mud holes and lock up the motor. He was some rich guy from Chicago and had to have it towed back

I hadn't seen a 2010 or newer in person until I got in mine.

I've been pretty busy so haven't had a chance to take any pics but I put a 2" leveling kit on, painted the antenna black & bought a toolbox then I bedlined it. I'll get pics later.

Nice truck for sure, but I too am in the diesel crowd lol. My dad has a 2010 with the 6.7 Cummins, and it's been a great truck. He's got 55k on it already, with no issues at all. The hemi is a good motor, for sure, I just don't think 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks should ever get gas motors when there is a diesel option. Mileage is better and so is power and towing capacity.

All that said, my dad's previous vehicle was a 2006 Charger with the hemi, and he put over 100k on it w/ no issues AT ALL. I did the plugs on it myself ( all 16 ), and although it took a while it's not a tough job. Keep the filters clean, change the oil on time and maybe consider a catch can setup, and that motor should give you many trouble free miles!

Congrats on the purchase :)

Also, here's my dads:

That pic was from a couple weeks ago. It sprinkled yesterday for about 5 minutes. They are saying 2-5 inches of snow on Sunday though.

There is not a diesel option in the power wagon. Diesel is overrated now unless you are towing on a regular basis. Too expensive to own, maintain, refuel, and they don't go as far as they used to. It was all great when diesel was cheaper than gas and you could get 300k out of them without any major issues.
