Yet the 4500-5500 use the same 6.7L engine. I wish they'd use the Cummins ISC or ISL and make it a real truck.

Yea, really fun when you're trying to see around those 2500 and 3500 behemoths when trying to back out of a parking space in a lot!

That's why I back in everywhere. Problem solved. FWIW, most people buying 2500 and 3500's are using them for their intended purpose, pulling 10K+ lb trailers, etc. My neighbor has one, he's been known to hitch construction equipment trailers to the tail of his on a regular basis. You'll get the occasional person turning it into a bro dozer, but not many - at least not around here.

Trust me, it's a pain climbing up into the darn thing too. I've got a '17 Crew, Longbed 2500 CTD and even with the steps it's a PITA. My old 2000 3500 Chevy was a lot easier to enter. They just keep making them taller and taller. I wonder where it'll stop.

Around here I do see quite a few short bed 2500s. I'm skeptical these guys are using them as work machines. They're too dolled-up with chrome and fancy doodads. FWIW, mine is used to pull my 35 foot camper, and my 30 foot (12,500 lb) boat.

I use my Corolla as a daily driver -- the Ram's just too much trouble to shoehorn into parking slots at work or the stores. My company lot requires head-in parking so (on the rare occasion I driver it) I'm hunting around the edges of the lot to ensure I don't get blocked in. Backing in would solve it, but that makes sense. And hopefully I don't need to point out that corporations and "making sense" don't often happen together.

Thatís your opinion but the automakers who spend millions on consumers opinion think they making what people want. Donít want one donít buy one but they will have no problems selling them.

Wonder if pricing has come out for them ? After much very hard thought, I decided to order a '19 1500 gasser. I currently drive a '05 2500 Cummins. Being that the biggest trailer I have left is an 8x12 landscaping trailer I pull ATV's on... I really don't need the 2500 anymore.
