    I'm not sure if you are interested in the Cummins (I know I am!! HA), but from what I have read and understand they are using the already introduced 6.7L Diesel that already met 2010's emission requirements back in its debut. That being said, I believe they are using the 6.7L for the 2010's with no changes. However, its still an all new re-designed truck, so like we've heard/seen before, they may need to clean up some bugs. Just something to think about.

    Am I making excuses to run out and pick-up a 2010 when they are available? Maybe... LOL

    Im not to sure about that urea injection on the 2010 diesels and up. Hopefully its not a problem. That sucks they dont have a extended cab either, just regular, 4 door, and mega cab. Maybe ill buy one in 10 years.

    Is it me, or does that thing kinda of have a "Ford" look to it. In some of these frames it looks alot like a F350 dually. To me anyway. Nice truck still

    Ford just beat them to the new more aerodynamic style box. Its all about fuel ecconomy now days.

    From what I hear they are offering the reg cab, quad cab and the new crew cab. They have done away with the mega cab

    I wondered about the sport model too... but have only seen the chrome bumpers. I'm not a fan of chrome that much... more body color.

    It's not just the ugly aerodynamic box, it's the Ford rip off headlights that make it look like a Ford.
    You guys realize it's Independent front suspension, right?
    Double A arm they call it. Introduced in 2009 models. I was looking to do my part for the economy and replace my 96 with a 08 or 09 until I found out 09's have independent suspension- coil springs not torsion bars, but independent all the same. It's a no sale for me. I still can't understand why Ford is the only one listening to buyers and offering locking hubs instead of CAD systems. Chrysler's management is a bit out of touch- I expected better of them especially with the introduction of the heavy duty medium class trucks.

    Are both the 2500 and 3500 IFS? How about the chassis cab (4500+)? That sucks.

    I thought the 2010s still had straight axles?

    http://www.allpar.com/model/ram/2010-HD.html Featuring solid front and rear axles, and a five-link, coil-spring front suspension with solid axle, a front and rear link-type sway bar and heavy-duty tubular shock absorbers are standard. The rear suspension on two- and four-wheel-drive models is equipped with leaf springs and includes standard two-stage springs as part of the design for greater load-carrying capability and better ride with light loads

    This website says straight axles. And a 5500 pound front GVW.

    Man what are you talkin about? The only Ram with Independent front end is the 1500 which is coil spring IFS. Ram 2500 and 3500 4X4 trucks have solid front axles ever since like forever. Actually in 2010 the increased the front axle rating up from 5200 to 5500lb, and one of the articles actually said it was to increase the snowplow weight capacity! I really like the looks of the new rams someday im gonna have me one of them!
