Ha thats funny Cummins detune the ISB for P/U truck use the horsepower limits of the 5.9 is pushing it now for maximum reliability. Cummins sure has you brainwashed the ISB started out a 160hp the marine version at 370hp isn't constant duty thats pleasure craft rating. If the Cummins ran at that power all day and everyday it would last less than a year myself I don't believe that the ISB is what Cummins claims it tobe. Its a crock of **** that Cummins claims the ISB is a medium duty truck engine you put that in a 5 ton truck is barely adequate.

As for buying a diesel its the only way togo if you are travel alot or your using the truck for serious work for guys like me that are in the construction industry diesel fuel is alot cheaper to buy and more cost effective.

I would go and test drive a some diesel P/Us before you consider ordering one you may not like the way it feels or the noise a diesel produces. The other thing is is diesel fuel redilly aviailable in your area I have read that not many gas stations have diesel pumps in parts of the states.

Here in Canada diesel is everywhere most of the trucks are diesel powered and its 10 cents cheaper per litre.

So go try out a PSD Ford Chevy Dmax or Dodge Crummins and see which one you will like best I know Chrysler dealers will damn near suck your **** to make a sale.

No doubt devildog. I'd take any of the big 3's diesels over any of their gas engines.

Altalawncare, don't waste your keyboard. Brickman, Swampbeast, and the others are reasonable, but Gravel Rat obviously never outgrew the "I know everything, the rest of you are stupid" teen years. Although others may have different preferences, which is ok, the rest of us know the Cummins is a great motor.

Tips...

For you PSD guys. Ricers? Wanna' make em' mad?
Paul and Rob will know what I mean....
Straight pipe will do the trick! Mine's SP'd.
Get one at a stoplight on the right on a two lane. Boom-boom going,the little silly exhaust noise they make.
When the light turns green you give 'em a dose of SP diesel and some black smoke.
Good for some laughs!

I am still mostly stock, but I am hoping that I get guages from Santa this Christmas. Before the season starts in March, I hope to get a Tymar intake and a muffler delete from Autojet.

I bought a 2001 Duramax last year and I love it. I prefer the diesel over my 2000 Chevy 2500HD. The MPG is also better. I didn't need a diesel but I wanted one. Like I told my wife we got a good deal and her usual reply was that one more good deal and we'll be in the poor house.

That's pretty good DHicks. The conversation around your house sounds very similar to my house.
