I'm finally getting serious, and drove a '24 Rebel 2500 Cummins today. All of your previous comments are on point (slower, heavier feeling), but the tech in it is pretty cool, but that's in all the high trim 2500/3500 trucks. It did seem a little more bouncy than my 1500 Rebel with air suspension, but I kinda expected that. I'm curious about your thoughts, now that you've had it almost 6 months. Have you towed with it? I have a 7000 lb camper (close to 1k tongue weight...front heavy). The one I'm looking at has the rear air suspension also.

I'd love to have that 52 gal tank, but that had to be pricey. I'm really surprised Ram only puts the larger tank in a 3500 dually. Makes no sense. I have the 31 gal (extended range tank, at least in a '16 1500) in my 1500 Rebel and love it. The 2500/3500 diesels should have at least a 40+ gal tank.

Update: I bought the Rebel 2500....same exact color scheme as our '16 Rebel 1500 we traded. Great truck so far. Knew it would have a stiffer ride than our old Rebel 1500, and then realized the dealership had the tires aired up to 80 lbs all the way around! Holy flintstones wheels, batman! I knocked them down to 65 lbs (factory spec)...much better :)

Now I have to take it to a PDR repair shop: on day 3 we had the truck at a farmers market my wife works at. I had the tailgate down while we loaded up her booth at the end. Some jackwagon backed into the tailgate and left without leaving a note. Small dent and hopefully a quick fix. Grrr!
