dump bodies with liftgates, but not a slide in with a lift gate. Diesel its a good buy. I'd pass on a V10, unless you have a gas station on every street corner to fill up.

V10 will get same fuel economy as diesel with the 6.4. Gas cost less, truck weighs less, holds more. Much, much cheaper to operate. The V10 rocks! + how many miles areyou really going to put on a dump anyway?

Over 25k. A V10 vs. ANY diesel and there is no comparison. I used to drive one in a box truck, it was an absolute dog, maybe the new ones are better. For my money diesel has better overall numbers than a gas. If the gas were better why is the diesel more expensive? Plus how many commercial trucks do you see on the road powered by a gas motor?
