I think those Fast Tracs are very cool. If only they had more crank surface area! Seriously though, a turned down 5.9/6.7L Cummins will last about forever.
As mentioned, I have several newer Ram 2500/3500 diesels for tractor delivery trucks, but owning a Raptor as my daily driver has given me a ton of respect for the twin-turbo 3.5l Ecoboost. I think each has its place. I won't tow heavy or often with the Raptor, and I won't jump the 3500 dually.
My brother had a Raptor with the 6.2? He hooked it to sled at the truck pulls a couple of times and gave my '75 F-250 with a tuned up 428 fits, Lol My class was 6500 lbs and that Raptor was so heavy he had to remove the spare and tail gate to make weight. He traded it on a '20 F-250, 6.7 with the 10 spd, he says that is one fast rig and tows like no tomorrow. He said when you nail it to pass someone you better change lanes first or you will hit the vehicle in front of you, even loaded. He said you do have to keep the rpms up on the exhaust brake to get any hold back.
