I borrow the church's diesel truck to finish moving into the new house, man that thing is...different to ride.
I've driven some trucks before, but nothing this high up nor on any main roads. I prefer vehicles closer to the ground, but I liked how this rode. You could see everything, and I felt like the king of the world! And that diesel....I can see why some people say they are slow. Just getting the rpms up seemed forever. Plus, it only went to 4000 rpms! My car goes to 8000, so I can only assume the diesel has more torque that way, right?
One thing I did notice, was the truck 'swayed' a bit during turns, which I wasn't crazy for.
If you have never driven a diesel, do it at least once. It's a pretty cool and unique, and I now have have a yearning for a diesel truck...
