I don't think they'd have gotten there without the Cummins engine to get enough people to try one.
I went down the first year that the Cummins came in the Dodge to buy one knowing what a great engine it was. I psyched my self up to the idea I'm buying a Cummins engine, they're just shipping it in a Dodge crate..... I still couldn't do it.
I also watch these posts and find it "interesting" to see folks tear down their "hated" brands. My view is that no one makes a "perfect" truck, they all have their strengths/weaknesses. And they've all had some major problems over the years. And even though many years ago, I had a frame failure that caused some minor loss of control (I survived...lol) with a Power Wagon, I'd consider another one today.
Interestingly, my older brother was a HUGE Dodge fan for about 45 years, but he eventually got tired of fixing the Dodge crate that housed that Cummins. And switched to another brand, and is very happy with his new choice. He has a 2500 acre farm, so his trucks get used pretty hard pulling his toy hauler and livestock trailers.
