The crew cab in my '05 Sierra 2500HD 4x4 is very quiet and roomy. Me, wife, two kids, a 80lb Lab all love it. 6.0 gas w/ 4.10 rear tows our 29'Rockwood easily up and down the Western MD hills. Towing, getting about 10mpg, not towing highway mpg between 15-16. I would have loved a diesel but could'nt go another $5,000. Plus this truck is not an every day driver so it will be a long time before the lower mpg will equal 5K.

You want the best truck for the buck? The choice is simple, you can have whichever truck you want ... as long as its a Cummins Turbo Dodge. Hehehehe JMHO.

My 04.5 Dodge Cummins rides great, is quiet enough that you don't have to shut it off at the drive throughs, has plenty of power to pull and stop a 29 ft. Wildcat while giving about 13 mpg. I've had Chevy's before but really like the low end torque of the Cummins.
Keep grinnin,
