    DIESEL!!!

    For towing diesel is THE way to go.
    For plowing diesel doesn't have as much of an advantage, so if you were plowing only it would be a tossup, but since you are thinking of doing both: Go with the diesel. You won't regret it.

    diesel fuel is higher than gas right now, but a V10 Dodge is about the thirstiest pig out there. Go with the diesel, it will pay you back in the long run, and you wil spend half as much time at the gas station.

    There's lots of Diesel fans here. However, Western boy never said how much plowing/towing/weight etc.:confused:

    If you plan to work the truck the way you just specified, DEFINITELY go with the Cummins, you WILL NOT regret it! What year 2500 are you interested in?

    If your going to be towing much and many miles than diesel. If not then gas will work fine unless you drive a ton of miles. Thats the "what makes sense $$$ wise aproach" Then there is also the if you can afford it buy what you want thing to consider.

    Sounds like a plan. Just be weary of the earlier transmissions. ;)
