Haha yeah I definitely wouldn't be hunting in the Durango. I've got the truck for that ;). The Durango feels so much more dang smooth suspension wise and the new 8-speed tranny is amazing! I was getting really tired of the DJ clunky tranny, this new one is like butter. Can't even feel when it shifts.
To me, the most amazing part is still the killer gas mileage. We gained almost 1000 lbs, and added AWD, and it gets the exact same mpg as the DJ. Much better than the Traverse, Acadia, and Tahoe's that we were comparing against.
Congrats man, been thinkin real hard about makin the same switch. I every time I go to the dealer for an oil change I look at the Durangos in stock, sit in a few, and play with the buttons. It is a sweet ride. My wife likes the Citadel, but that truck is just too nice to be draggin through the woods for hunting. Maybe if I only camped it would be an option for me, but I just can't see myself throwing a deer or hog in the back of one.

Well, after almost 6 years we've decided to trade the DJ in for something bigger for our family of 3 kids. The Journey was just getting too small with the three carseats/boosters. We bought it new in 2012 and it treated us well for 130k miles. Only a couple minor recalls, lots of brake replacements, and basically just fluids and filters. Really never had any major issues. It treated us so well we decided to stick with Dodge and absolutely loved the Durango's. Ended up getting a slightly used 2017 Durango GT loaded with nearly every option. I love the new tech and entertainment centers on these things. So many dang options and gadgets to play with! Hopefully we can keep the Durango for just as long as the DJ. I've posted some items for sale that I had left over in the garage. Posted the only pic I have of the new Durango.
Later DJ gang, it's been fun!!!
