Hi Don,

I guess I'm kinda biassed here but here's my take on the diesels.

I did a lot of research and found that as far as diesel durability goes they are all pretty good. I would have preferred a Cummins diesel, but I didn't like the new Dodge body style. The Duramax is an Isuzu motor. Isuzu has made diesel motors for years, but I'd still rather have an American made diesel motor. Chevy also has an independent front suspension with their 4x4's and I hate changing CV boots on the axles (major pain in the @ss).

I read a lot of stories about the Ford vs. Dodge and Chevy. They had all kinds of competitions pulling and not pulling loads. Speed and torque, you name it. Ford beat all of the competition. It's not like they left the other guys standing still, but it still looked good for getting the better of the three if a Ford was what you wanted.

Check out www.thedieselstop.com they will answer any questions you might have and it is the only honest site out there! Yes, there are some with bugs in them, but any new motor will have problems when coming out for the first time. I think you will get a trouble free awesome truck just like me!

I love my truck and there's nothing out there I can't pull. It's a joy to drive and has a very comfortable ride. You can try mine any time if you like. Just let me know or PM me and you can give it a whirl and tell me what you think.

Good luck!

John

Also if you are a Costco member, don't forget to try them out too! One very important thing if you are serious about buying a PSD. Go to www.thedieselstop.com and look in the "order" section. Look for a fleet salesman by the name of "Cochise" out of Houston Texas or "Bobby Williams" out of California. They will do their darnedest to get you a truck through the "X" plan or as close as they can to it. The "X"plan is for folks who work for "Ford Friendly" companies. If your company buys lot's of Ford vehicles you might already be eligible. You might want to check this out at the PD. I'll bet P.V. drives a lot of Crown Vic's.

I almost bought my truck through Cochise, but then remembered about a future Bro in law that sells Fords. You can't go wrong with these guys!

Oh, by the way. How's it going Amberjack? Long time no post/talk to!
