I'd daily drive the **** out of that thing. I'm not a Dodge fan at all, but I do have a soft spot for the old square body D250's. I am a huge fan of the Cummins, but still prefer a Duramax over a Cummins.

I'm a chevy guy at heart and I want to know why you prefer a duramax over a cummims.
All my buddies at work said the cummins is where it's at with a truck that's go be towing all over the place. They told me it's hard to beat a inline motor. And yes I know Duramax trucks has the Allison tranmission.

The Duramax is what I'd prefer for what I'd do with the truck. For me, it would be a daily driver that I'd want to hot rod around in. Occasional pulling, but not daily. All my friends that pull heavy loads often love their Duramax. It does everything they need it to do and then some. Is the Cummins better for a straight 100% dedicated truck that pulls heavy loads, possibly, but I've talked to several guys who have driven both and they prefer the Duramax for towing. I don't think you can go wrong with either honestly.

How? The Cummins powered Titan has more torque and can tow about 400 more pounds. That's it. The Ecoboost will beat it to 60mph by almost 3 seconds while getting better mileage.

While the NTC seems like a good truck. Its basically a beefed up 1/2 ton that costs the same as a 3/4 ton. So, its a good or bad truck depending on what you want. If you want a reasonably strong half ton that gets good mileage and dont mind the sticker, go for it. If you want to tow car haulers and large boats and stuff that should be done by 3/4 tons? It wont be a good option. If you want a truck that hauls ***, it wont be a good option.

Also from what I heard, these trucks are SLOW.

I recently helped load a stripped 1 ton chevy frame for a rat rod project. 3 of us moved it easily. It takes 4 to move the Titan XD FRAME, not so easily...

Actually done it myself several times when an issue arises as part of my job as a maintenance technician. I happen to work at the plant where they build the trucks...

I've seen a lot of posts of people not happy at all with that small cummins in the Titan. I prefer my duramax though, the dodge truck itself has never appealed to me.
