I'm not giving you a hard time, it just bothers me when people give Dodge credit for making a good diesel (not that you were). I don't think they'd have much at all going for them if they didn't have a Cummins under the hood

Kinda how Ford bore the brunt of the whole Navistar fiasco. It's in their truck and they catch the hell for it. I think Ford makes their own Power Stroke now if I'm not mistaken.

The Cummins is the only thing dodge has going for them. Tranny is weak, interior is cheap....

Ford>

I don't like the looks of anything after 06? For super duties anyways.

I think ford broke off the partnership with international after the 7.3, if I'm not mistaken, the 6.0 was the first ford produced powerstroke.

Oh. I thought the latest one, the 6.7 was their first. Never had one so I can't say with any certainty.

Yeah you are right pat, navistar (international) made the 6.0's. 6.7 is the first ford produced diesel engine. Most of the problems with 6.0's were caused by navistar, not fords design!!!

I see. Yeah the Navistars were problematic. Yet there are still a few people who swear by them. Like I said, I have driven a few but not enough to really judge.
