Im a cummins man myself. But if I were in the market for a half ton I would drop the coin on a ecoboost ford for sure. My brother in law just picked one up. Twin turbo v6. Great mileage. Pretty good tow capacity for a half ton. And quick! The back seat is larger than my 4 door 1 ton dodge. No hump in the middle for the drive line so its great for overnight scouting. May want to do some research on the ecoboost. Looks to be the best of both worlds in a half ton.
