When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle... It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.

Very interesting. I'm sure the others manufactures will be watching this very close. If it pans out I'm sure they will think about jumping in and being a
"Me Too" just like they all did on the mini vans.

I thought that the 5.0L was just for the 1500's. At least that's what I remember reading about the last Cummins/Mopar light duty diesel talks. And if I remember correctly, the last light duty diesel was supposed to be a 5.6L not 5.0L.
