Dodges are nice trucks but they dont even compare to a GM! I am sure a dodge guy would say the same about a GM also.

If it wasnt for the cummings, dodges would be a boarder line POS!

Haha, that is true!! Ive got an opinion about GM vehicles from workin in bodyshops, but the DMax has come into its own. Yall may have more competition, as there are some programmers comin out that give the CRs some much needed rpms...I did hear about Chris runnin 9 somethin in his truck...congrats to him...bashings all in fun right? Theres 3 ways to go, but its all diesel power...

If I HAD to get rid of my Duramax....it would be a cummins. But I would never ever buy a Powerstroke. In the past 8 months...I've talked to 2 of my dads friends with PS's....My heating guy and his partner..(both have PS's)....some random guy in a bike shop with a new PSD...AND my uncles brother bought one....Every single last one of them is under 50,000 miles...and ALL of them had the heads replaced twice...along with some other issues. I could never justify spending that much money on a truck that breaks that much. Plus 4 local guys all quit at Ford and opened their own repair/paint/bodywork shop around here because they said that it was too much grief having the same customers come in with the same problems all the time...and it was starting to hurt their reps.

I know a few guys that have had heads replaced on PS's also. Ford is kind of going down the drain if you ask me. Has anyone seen the video on youtube that shows the new PS shooting flames out of the exhaust? That video speaks for itself. My cousin has a new Megacab with roughly 15k on the cummings and he is on his second turbo! going on his third! But at the same time my truck developed a misterious oil leak with only 900 miles, explain that one!

Here is the link with the ford throwing flames from the exhaust! Listen to the motor, it sounds a little under the weather!

Lol Ford Tow Truck!!! Lookin for a 99-02? with the 7.3. It sucks that the only thing in 00+ to get 19.5's is a Kodiak. Ford still puts them in the F-350. :cool:
if thats all thats holdin you back from buyin a Duramax let me hook you up with some 19.5 wheels and tires for a 3500HD GM..
