I could say somethin about a Dodge has more power than Tug but I won't.
Remember, I had the 3.55 rear in my old pickup and got along fine. Just could not get up the mountains as fast as some.
Even the dealers tried to talk me out of the 4.10 because of MPG. I know there may not be a big difference in MPG but what I got will have to do.

I still don't remember WHAT DINNER

Red,

I know you'll enjoy the new Dodge. I don't know where you are getting your numbers, but in the stock application my Duramax has more HP and torque than the Cummins. No big deal. IMHO, everyone (the big three) has a good truck today. Some have more advantages in certain areas, you know, strengths and weaknesses. Also your 30 footer Excel, is a bit lighter than Journey at 17,345 lbs. If I thought we'd would be keeping Tug long term, I'd spend the money for a 4.10 and that would be a compromise for economy. I would really would like a 4.30.

I'd love to have dinner on you!! We be HUNGRY!

Tom,

I really don't know what the numbers are.

I do know that the last time I saw Tug, it was wheezing, sputtering, coughing, leaning to one side, and looked like it was on it''s last leg!!!

Darn it, wait a minute , that was you that I was thinking of.

Jim

Oh yeah...and that was one of my better days! I take better care of Tug and Journey than I do of myself....oh that reminds me..I need to go in for a lube oil and filter! I use only synthetic hi test lube (aka Oak Leaf).
