SSEiDriver97, as I said earlier in the thread about Mercury,https://www.gmforum.com/showthread.php?t=292306, I am a die hard Ford fan. I just want to know where you got the info that Dodge and Chevy were using gas, I'm not accusing you of lieing or anything, just wondering. Since I'm a die hard Ford fan, I'm just gonna keep my mouth shut in this thread.

Mine has 140k on it an runs as strong as the day it was built. The diesel engine is simple and reliable. And should be left that way How come we don't see older Ford V-8 diesels on the road?. Because Ford takes gas technology and tries to bend it to fit diesel. And casts junk in the process.

The fact that I can look on Auto Trader and see 1998 Dodge 2500 diesel'* going for $13k with 200k on them speaks to how awesome they are.

I've done the research on this many times.

When it comes to power and reliablity in diesels, every WORKING man who uses their truck for work seems to share a very similar sentiment. The Dodge cummins engine is the best to have for towing and a work truck, followed by the duramax, followed by the powerstroke. For any given year, it seems that the cummins is more powerful than its direct comparisons, and there are other benefits that I won't go into at this time.

This coming from a hardcore GM guy.
