    I must agree this truck meets the challenge of any task it it asked to perform, provided the truck specs were ordered correctly in the first place,
    I have a friend with a 2006 Laramie 1500 hemi, although not a truck person myself, driving that vehicle from Houston, to Groveton, NH. was indeed a pleasure, I know the 2013 have improved on a already fine 2006, Motor Trend got this one right.
