May go back to another Cummins so trying to figure things out.


Other than the transmission issue you just noted, are those Ecodiesels worth a damn when it comes to fuel economy (unloaded, highway miles)?

I'll believe the HP and Torque figures when I see it on a DYNO, cause no way is it getting that to the ground. Probably a lot closer to 300 HP, and 600 lbft of torque.

It’s a limited with black interior. I was going to get a Laramie but it wasn’t much more and wow what a difference. I’m very happy with my truck!

I guess FCA or Cummins decided to fix the sound that was being generated in the 2016-2017 3500 Mega Cabs. There were several that had this issue including yours truly.

My best mileage was 29.7 mpg hand calculated. I filled up in Gallup, NM and drove to Pratt, KS on one tank (658 miles). I love the Ecodiesel and look forward to buying the 2nd generation Ecodiesel.

As a matter of fact, I'm going to take the $3,075 dollars (FCA dieselgate settlement money) and put it towards a 2020/2021 Ram 3500 Cummins.

Would anyone be willing to post a picture of the frame where the radius arm bracket is welded on? I’d like to see if it’s like the previous generation. Thanks.

I’d buy that.

I realize how scientific a butt dyno is... so that being said my 05 dyno’d at 415/850. At the same weight on the same hills and speed the engine load runs nearly the same at 2000-2200 rpms, in direct. Axle ratio was 3.73 on the 05, and 3.42 on the 18.

I have had my 2019 for a little over a month, had a 2016 Ram 3500 prior. There is a huge difference. Quieter, smoother, more responsive, no vibrations.
