Holy crap! As some of you may remember, I currently own a 97 12v Cummins (and I love it). But I had heard so much about the d-max/ allison, so I went and test drove an 05 crew cab, short bed auto. It was awesome. I know what my next truck is for sure. It rides smoother, the turbo sounds awesome, and it offers great features. I love the seats and the stance. I like the center sonsole layout. It steers and brakes firmly. And it's fast for a stock truck; my cummins could beat it right now, but with a chip, intake, exhaust, I will feel right at home.
