    Checkout competitiondiesel.com or cumminsforum.com there are a bunch of threads over there about them. People who own them seem to love them and feel the extra power and the others say a tuner will do the same and more with less investment because dealers are blowing out 2011 non HO trucks.

    I traded in a 2005 LLY Duramax for my 2011 non HO Cummins couple months ago and don't regret it one bit. My Ram is a crew cab 3500 and I thought my GMC was a plowing machine until this truck. Don't get me wrong the GMC was a nice truck, but each truck makes different power. The 6.7 Cummins has alot more bottom end power were the Duramax had to spool up more and get more rpm before it made good power. I had everything done to my Duramax from egr delete, exhaust, kitty delete and EFI live, Banks and a PPE programmers. My stock Cummins gets better fuel mileage on the hwy, but about the same in town. In a drag race I feel the Duramax would win, but it would be even until top end. Plowing and using bottom end power? Hands down the Cummins.

    I just bought a 2009 6.7 to install into my 2nd gen (2001) Ram. I can't wait to be able to drive this beast.

    Subscribed. I'm pretty sure I want one of the new Ram's when I trade my 96 dodge in, curious to hear how people like them on here too.
