So the thread does need a gr opinon: the cummins is a throw away engine!

It wasn't real clear to me, but it appears that dodge is too killing the manual transmission, which, in my opinion, is a real bummer. I won't buy a truck that doesn't have a standard, I don't think that you can beat the reliability and low cost of ownership on a standard.

You got it my friend, you really picked the wrong week to go away on vacation. Obviously better planning will be required next time

i was thinking about trading my 08 f350 6.4 powerstroke, i hate it. its always in regen because i dont drive far enough. dealer said it would work fine when i bought, yeah right! i loved Ford but have really had it with them. i have no more loyalty and 4 fords are on the chopping block as finances allow me to swap them out.

this time i went to garages, tranny shops, and consumer protection after going through a lemon law with my truck. I asked them all what they would get. nearly every single one of a dozen picked GM. its not about what i preffer with looks and who has the highest HP, i was happy with the power of my 00' f350 7.3l . to me its about reliability and repair costs/downtime

Supercuts,

Why don't you tune and rip that DPF off of your 6.4? Are you getting close to your 100k warranty?

I see. I only have 6K miles on my 2011 and it's begging me to take it off. Mine only goes into regen about every 400 miles though.

come springtime the dpf/doc combo from hell are coming off my truck. im sick of the regen crap and plowing doesnt help it out.

better mileage and more reliability are definitely worth me forsaking the remainder of my warranty.

im only at 50K on my 09 6.4
