Which diesel engine do you prefer?

What do you all prefer in a pickup truck? I'm just curious. I'm new to lawnsite so this is my first poll.

Can't vote.

I prefer the Cummins in my Ford(s).
1 L8000 with an 8.3
2 F800's with 5.9's
1 F350 with 5.9

Powerstrokes--any but the 7.3 suck.

PS There is only 1 true medium duty diesel in that list. The rest are wannabes.

I voted cummins since that's what I drive.

I could really care less what motor is a truck as long as the damn thing does what I need it to do.
