    Nice truck congrats !! Do you notice a big power difference or nothing huge? Just ask because I never even test drove the 4 cylinder but heard lots of great things?

    Thanks! Yeah, I don't drive super fast, but the 4cyl seemed like I had to be in the higher RPMS to stay at a cruising speed, alot of which probably had to do with the 4 cyl being a 5 spd, but going uphill I notice a HUGE difference. Both are great motors in their own rights, but the v6 definitely has more power!

    Congrats! Wish I could’ve kept the goodies from my last truck, but the trade up was worth it :thumbsup:

    Congrats! Good looking truck and awesome you got to keep the mods.

    Maybe it’s a case of grass is greener on the other side, but if I could do it over I might have gone with a 4x4 2.7 MT had it been available. I rarely tow and when I do it’s usually under 800 lbs.. really just do a lil wheeling and hauling in the bed.

    But in some cases it’s true.

    I did the same. Went from a 2015 DCSB 2.7 to a 2018 DCLB 3.5. I love the power upgrade. If I would have know Calvary blue was available for 2019 I would have waited.

    Honestly though, I have the automatic 4cyl, and that 6th gear is useless.

    You better be careful saying stuff like this. Don't you know - the V6 doesn't have any more USEABLE power than the 2.7. That's what I herd. Fo reals.

    The 4 cyl mafia will make you pay.

    If I'm not mistaken only the auto was a 6spd. The v6 manual is 6spd
