08 vacation pics and browning museum

here are the pictures from our 2008 vacation http://inlinediesel.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID 72 that included disney land and the browning museum.
initially i had buyers remorse about trading in my '05 dually for the '08 but that went away as soon as i started this trip. it was the first time pulling the camper loaded (we were 23,800 pounds GCVW on the scale at flyin' j) and HOLY CRAP the 6.7 completely man-handled my camper. the 5.9 2005 pulled the camper, but it was nothing like the 2008. weighing 24,000 pounds i topped baker pass (grade into baker california on i15) at 50 mph which included slowing to 30 behind traffic and then accelerating back up to 50. on the way back i came down baker pass without ever getting over 45 mph and I NEVER TOUCHED THE BRAKE PEDAL! the exhaust brake is simply not comparable to any other OEM pickup available today. in tow/haul mode the exhaust brake controlled my camper completely. it was an absolute man-handle! coming down the grade outside victorville i never touched the brake either...it was simply amazing.
...honestly i dont know where dodge can go from here. perhaps in features like a widescreen tv, but in terms of power and braking the '08 really IS that good.
