Exactly! Its that simple. FORD RULES. Now once everyone comes to this perfectly logical conclusion, there will be peace on Earth.

I didn't bother to read all the way through this, but I believe this is the thread where someone asked to see the photo of the connecting rods from the GM, Ford, and Cummins diesel engines. Well, here it is. It should be noted that the GM is the 6.2/6.5 not the new Duramax.

Again, I don't know that it matters, as I've never heard of a Powerstroke, or GM diesel for that matter, breaking a connecting rod, but I think it's a good example of how over-built the Cummins is. That is probably because the engine is designed as an industrial and medium-duty truck engine that they shoe-horned into a pickup. As opposed to the Powerstroke and GM diesels that were designed for pickups. It's also interesting to note that the bearing caps are offset in the Cummins connecting rod.
Just a little bit of bragging rights for Cummins owners I guess - Mine's bigger...
