planning on trading my 05 qc Hemi for a 05 qc ctd. Reasons are towing, mileage and durability, I plan to run on biodiesel. Good or bad move?

Its all based on the trade difference, when they were both new they were about $6,000 apart.

5.9 has less power and a weaker tranny if you are going for the auto.

Just don’t lend your diesel to your little brother; he’ll trade it in on a new Chevy Trail Blazer.

That would be my only concern with switching to a diesel. Unless your putting a lot of miles on the truck it is going to take awhile if ever to recoupe your costs. Considering the diesel will be more expensive from the start and diesel fuel where I live is about $.60 more expensive than high test.

Just remember the trade in effect also. 05 Hemi's are going for what, 12K? 05 CTD's are going for 25K? Not bad for an initial 6K difference.

Holy crap! If they are going for $12k up by you, I'm going to go up there buy some and bring them down here for resale. I.E.- right now, locally, the best '05 Hemis $17K and the CTD is $22K. It doesn't change your point just not that big a difference. ;)
