I would have gone the HDT route in a heartbeat, but the climb in was just a little more than the wife wanted. I am still most satisfied with the IH. I have made the pull to Vegas three times now and am quite satisfied. A little more tq for the hills would be nice, and there is some potential for that in the future.
