    My father purchased an 08 f450 and it is one solid truck. Built like a tank. Beware of the fuel mileage though it will not be as good as you hope.

    and in only 6 months. all they did was run the truck, there was no stop and go, and no wear over time.

    I honestly don't know why everyone gets so excited by cummings, I have a fl60 with a cumming and a '07 ford 750 with a cummings and then a Chevy 7500 with a cat.. even though the cat has less hp it is by far the more powerfull motor, the tourque is incredible and it'll put you back in your seat even though its attached to a 16klb tuck. I won't buy another cummings, both of mine hate starting and though they're quiet don't have the umph or the driver satisfaction of the cat, though they are cheaper
