We have traveled a lot of North America but 2 hrs from home is pretty special!
Still a LONG way from "sorted" but a good start.
I just read through your Dakota build! Really cool stuff you are doing!

Thanks Treburkulosis, it was the reliability and power of the Dakota that inspired me to do this 1500 swap. I'm also hoping for the same 20-22MPG towing fuel consumption but it will be next year before I get any real data on that.

Ive heard the eco diesel numbers in the rams are excellent. I am lucky if I can get 16 on a good day with the hemi.

I almost bought an ED but was not happy with the reliability and when on a holiday I don't want to spend a bunch of time waiting on parts or a whole new engine. In the Dakota the Cummins never let us down other than an alternator in Kingman AZ a few years ago but that was just a one day delay.
