The south doesnt care about all that EPA crap, and I agree with them. Its all a waste of money.

About the 6.7 ram diesels with an H&S and 5" turbo back exhaust you can get about 18 maybe 20 mpg empty and with 26 big round bails doing 65 y'all drop down to about 12.5 mpg. And a bone stock 6.7 ram diesel pulling a 1 ton 2wd dually your gonna get about 8.5 mpg

I know guys with straight piped 6.7's that still make 24 empty. Hell, a friend of mine has a 500 hp Duramax LBZ with a Suncoast upgrade to his 6-spd Allison and a lock-up torque converter (straight piped exhaust of course) that makes 23 mpg on the highway doing 65 mph...with a 4" lift and a Frontier front bumper with a custom, heavy duty full length headache rack. I also know if I were to put a slight tune on my fathers 06 MegaCab and start deleting emissions 30 mpg would be easy (it already makes 29 mpg empty and is completely stock), even new the truck still made 22 mpg.

The only PSD I actually like but not at all an efficient engine. When modded right, they make some good power and torque but very few can actually compete in the same class as 5.9's in professional pull classes. Very few Duramaxes can compete with the 5.9's in the full on classes as well.

Wink PSD Is now mine

All, thank you for working this thread to help me out. I managed to sell my 2003 F150 and bought an 2006 F250 SD 6.0L Diesel. Power is not longer an issue and the 10K# at the bumper receiver is more than enough for my needs.

Delete all of the emissions, get a Bully Dog GT, and you should have a 20-21mpg diesel. If your concerned about the known problem points that have occurred with the occasional 6.0, check out the October issue of Diesel World.
