Nice!!

It's funny that the compaint about the exhaust brake was that they wanted to hear a change in the sound.

What's even funnier is that it sounds as if they were complaining about it's efficacy... and even had to "manually engage it" from time to time.

Here's a hint, fellas -- if you don't "manually engage it", it's not on.

I think the comparison was to the 2011 Ford as their EB is auto activated with Tow/Haul engaged. I have drven all 3 2011 diesels and the EB is most effective on the Dodge by far. It seems like GM and Ford both need to work on this one some more.

AND YOU THOUGHT CARTER SUCKED

My favorite comment was that the shifts were harsh between gears, I take it these guys do not drive anything regularly with any weight behind it. If they wanted smooth shifts then the should have taken it out of tow haul.
Also anyone that owns a LMM, or drives a standard transmission, knows by the speed and RPM what gear you are in if you are to dense to figure it out you would not know the difference anyway. I certainly am glad they were not in a standard, they would never figure out when to shift, without a shift up or shift down light.
For a group that is supposed to be reviewing a pick-up truck that is going to be used hard they seemed to me they would be a lot better reviewing a compact car.
They are suppose to be doing another test with Ford and GM I do not know about Dodge soon I hope they have different testers
