    There is a few trans options for cummins. you can also get adapter plates to mount a allison trans to them.

    also dodge dose not make the trucks anymore, Ram split from them has a few years now and they make the trucks. They still are sold at dodge dealers though. the name dodge is not on the side or back of them anymore.

    What Gelo said... You could also argue that it is basically a rebadged "Ram" so all you fanboys better stay away because it will fall apart on you. Lol

    So Ram/Dodge has the Cummins. Nissan and Toyota will have Cummins engines soon... It'll be interesting to see how the advertising people for each brand of truck can spin this in their ads. Maybe Cat , Detroit,Perkins [owned by Cat],Mercedes,PACCAR,Hino,etc etc. will be offered one day as options ,like on the big rigs. {Well, Cat is getting out of OTR engines. Maybe they'll offer smaller ones for pickups...}

    Not impressed. A brand new engine, who knows how the reliability will be. I service Cummins engines at work, most of my buses have them. Despite what the gushing fanboys will tell you, they're nothing special, I rebuild and change injection pumps often ($4,000 job for the 5.9L). Crankshaft seals, fuel lines cracking, etc. My new 2013 6.7L Cummins is developing a few problems. All my buses regardless of make have Allison transmissions and they dont have problems, I rarely work on them.

    The best choice in pick up trucking is a GM Duramax/Allison combo. ANY potential Tundra buyer will do anything they want to do and more with one. This 5.0L V8 tundra is a 3/4 ton wanna be, so why not just get the real thing? Duramax is just getting better and better and building on their reputation, there are Duramaxs with 500k+. And the "its too big" argument is old and tired. A 2010 Sierra ECSB 2500 has only 4 inches longer wheel base than a 2nd gen DCLB Tacoma.

    Bottom line is, Cummins is good, but overrated in my opinion. Id much rather have a 3.0L 4 cylinder from a Fuso Canter than the Cummins V8 anyway. I work on Fusos too, some are pushing 18k gvw and that 4 cylinder pushes them.

    i agree with the overrated cummins and the new engine reliability bit... toyota owners in the have been drooling over diesels in these trucks for as long as i can remember.

    but the too big argument.. i dont think that has to do with length. some of these four door tundras and 4 door long bed tacomas are as long as any other truck on the road. my "too big" argument against full size trucks isnt wheelbase.. its width. have you seen a tacoma next to an f-150 or a 1500? it looks tiny. or rather, the full size trucks of today are monsters. my 89 pickup felt like the perfect size for me.. and the tacoma has grown twice since then. hell the old tundy is the same size as the new tacoma!

    anyways, ill clean it up by agreeing with you.. id rather have a 4cyl diesel all day long than this cummins v8.

    The old Tundra is still slightly larger than the Tacoma. Hard to tell unless you part them side by side.

    It's not worth the extra cost for the diesel engine or the extra cost for fuel.I read an article on the ram 1500 diesel.
    The tow rating is 6,800lbs for the 3.55 axle and only jumps up to 8,500 for the 3.92 axle.They got 14.1 mpg towing 6,900 lbs at 55 mph.They averaged 19 mpg average not towing.
    The truck itself had sticker of $55,000

    Definately not the reviews I have seen.

    Most trucks are seeing 25+ MPG combined.

    My truck gets 10-12 towing and 17-18 when not towing.

    The fact a 6000lb truck can do better is astounding. I am leaning toward buying an ECOdiesel Ram, and have priced a top of the line Laramie at $47,000 after rebates in Canadian prices.

    The Tacoma limited which doesnt even have CLOSE to as many options is $38,000 after Toyotas rebates (which are none existant).
