You would need to be someone who really, really beats the sh*t out of your work trucks (not saying that there is any shortage of those people, of course) before that engine wasn't enough.

Good fuel economy for the most part, but I had a hard time keeping my foot off the accelerator.
my friend owns a 07 ram 3500 mega cab and he is always punching it off the line it and it is pretty quick for such a massive truck

You get addicted to that powerful noise that a big diesel makes when the turbos spool up. A 1-ton truck that actually gets up and goes is as much fun for me as anything else.
