If I were shopping new, or almost new, I'd be looking at had trucks myself. Ford 6.2s seem to have the edge tho
Most miles will be either empty or pulling my 12' trailer with the RZR on it. I only tow the camper every couple of months. For the $9k less for the gas motor over the Cummins I can buy a lot of gas. Plus gas is $.50-.60 a gallon cheaper than diesel where I live and almost always is so the improved mileage from the diesel is probably negligible when you factor in the increased cost of #2 over gas.
