Howdy all. Looking at either a Duramax or a cummins for a tow rig. Looking around $20000-22500. Just started the research and this should be fun. :)

Sweet. Theres actually a few people on here trying to sell them in the for sale section. In your price range your probably gonna find an older dmax with low miles or a newer one with a ton of miles. Just dont forget the big thing is at 100,000 miles the GM waranty is up for the injectors. However, in the 02's I think GM extended the waranty because of alot of problems they where having. :rolleyes:

Mav, You should be able to find a hauler in that price range. You can probably find a newer Dodge than GM. A friend of mine only buys used dodge trucks because " they are everywhere, cheap, and he doesn't have to drive them." I was a die hard Dodge fan until I started driving my 06. Now I wouldn't go back. The D Max is the quietest diesel on the road and GM has the most comfortable cab available. Between the ride, Bose and XM the miles just go by.
Good Luck,
Vern

GM has a better ride. In my opinion dodge seats and interior are better. Easier and cheaper to work on a cummins(in the rare occasion it needs work) Dodge automatic sucks for towing, 6 speed rocks though, cant beat it. Allison is an awesome tranny. Cant beat the low end grunt of the cummins. After working on a cousins 07 dmax I have to say it is much easier to mod a dodge cummins. good luck you wont regret either truck.

Just curious what mod you did to a 07 that wasn't easy to put on? I would say that they are both easy to get to a non streetable/towable limit at 600HP.

What kind've tractor do you pull?

So far I only put bully dog triple dog and outlook monitor, and a egr blocker on it. Its not that its harder or more expensive, But after you do similar stuff to a cummins where everything is much more accesible. i hate sticking my hands in tight places and getting skin chunked off! I have a case, we pull 11000 to 15500 lb farmstock.
