Let's talk diesel.

Okay guys, I'm looking to get a new diesel pickup in the next month or two, and I'd like to hear some REAL WORLD reviews on the 2011 and newer diesels.

The trucks in question.

Yup, I've got a Dodge. My iPhone was being gay and wouldn't let me post all the links at once. What kind of fuel mileage you seeing with that Cummins?

6.7 cummins are great motors if you don't have emissions testing and can delete it the dpf and egr systems. if you leave it stock and regularly pull heavy or make highway runs you will be ok, its around town and stop and go that clogs em up. no experience with the ford or chevy, but both of those will use DEF as a means of cleaning the DPF and reducing emissions. DEF trucks seem to get better mileage stock than the 07.5-12 ram's, but you also have to figure in the added cost of DEF. much harder to get rid of that system also .

i'm very happy with my cummins, i never had any problems stock but its a whole different animal now that it's been deleted. i get around 17-18mpg average with it deleted. you can't beat the cummins for longevity
