If Fiat (Dodge, Ram, or whatever name they are now) trucks are so good, why do people switch from the brand and buy a Ford?
Before I bought my truck, I looked at the GM's and Dodge. One of the reasons I bought the 6.4L was all of the development by Ford and Navistar that went into the 6.4L. I could have bought a Ford 6.7L but chose 6.4L because I know that Navistar produces reliable motors and they themselves admit that 6.4L motor will be the most reliable motor they have ever produced. Additionally, after GM and Dodge took my money from the Government and then declared bankrupsy, I personally have a hard time supporting those companies. Neither company has paid back the money owed (GM has outright lied saying they have).
If the Cummins motor works for you, by all means buy another Dodge. Based on the Cummins forums, those trucks have many of the same issues as Fords and GMs. I personally don't think you'll go wrong buying a Ford, a Dodge, or a GM. All three companies produce reliable motors. It's whether or not you can stomach the thought of supporting the other two companies that went to the government for handouts knowing they were going to stick it to you and me and not pay back the money.
Just my opinion. Good luck with whatever route you take.
