My dad had a 2006 6.0 with dual 5" straight pipes, and the whole "bullet proof" works, and it was an awesome truck, only problem was the f.I.c.m. (fuel injector control module) went out. He traded that one in on a 2010 6.4 and it was an 8mpg piece of crap, that was in the shop at least twice a Month for the 6 short months he had it before he traded it in. His DPF went out and the truck just stalled blew an 8' long cloud of black smoke then took off loud as all hell because it was like not having a DPF, but then it started running pretty poorly lol

Test drive them and see which one you like the best and is the best fit for whatever you are going to be using it for.

I will not lie, my bosses wife has a 2012 2500 mega cab 4x4 Laramie. That truck rides so much better than mine, but the interior on the Laramie which is the same as lariat is pretty pitiful, the seats are insanely uncomfortable, the "premium sound" is worst than my low grade factory system ( before I changed it), and the steering is insanely stiff. The good about the truck... Ummm the megacab is really roomy, the engine has power, but from a dead stop you can spin the tires on fords 6.7's dodges 6.7 cannot, dodges 6.7 pulls like a mule, I've never towed with fords 6.7, dodge does offer 100,000 mile powertrain warranty which is good, but most diesels end up with a programmer so the warranty gets voided so it doesn't matter anyway. This is my comparison from my experiences, but I would say test drive them, and do everything that you will be doing with your truck with each one of them and just see which one does it better

Yup yup. My work Ram rides fairly well, but the seats suck. My F150 has really cozy seats.
