    I currently have for towing a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel that needs repairs , afterall it is a Dodge . Thinking of getting Chevy 3500 Duramax Dually or an International 4700 Dump truck. I usually tow 10-15ooo pounds everytime I go out to work. What are you guys running.

    Chris, is the Canyon your "PR" truck for bids and estimates?

    I've considered doing the same thing to cut costs.

    I heard the Powerstroke 6.0's are no match for the older 7.3 - lots of problems with the turbo's. Thinking of an f550 w/7.3 or International 4700.

    The Canyon is my personal truck for estimates and running around. It makes too much sense fuel wise. 19mpg compared to 6mpg.:dizzy:
