I've looked at both and just last week purchased the RAM 2500 with Cummins.
My reasons were:
1. The price of the RAM was about 5k to 7k less for the same basic options.
2. The Cummins engine has a proven track record.
3. I thought the F-250 seemed much bigger (although this is mostly perception)
4. I thought the ride was a bit better in the RAM.
The F-250 is a new design and has more features (like blind side monitoring, adaptive cruise control, etc.) Those things are a plus if they are of value to the buyer.
But both are great trucks and I don't think you can go wrong with either.
