I too wanted a diesel, but just not currently available in the GM line. BTW: Dodge lost the Cummin's contract with the bailout, guess who has it in 2011? Yep, its Ford. Ford is also dumping the Navistar diesel as it's been a problem for the last 5 or so years, so that's why they designed their own inhouse diesel, the 6.7L.

BTW: Anytime you need motor work on your Super Duty, they have to lift the cab off the chassis, which was a huge turn off for me as half the motor is buried into the firewall of the truck.

Like I said, I'm in the home of the Super Duty and their owners told me to shop elsewhere. The contractors and construction guys tell me when every other truck is in the shop the GM trucks are still on the work site, still working.

Been trying to sell off all the Jeep parts so I can get this truck the way I like it.

I made sure that I won't have a whimpy transmission ever again and will never own another Mopar, so I chose the GM Heavy Duty line. I chose the GMC over the Chevy as the GMC has a better build quality and is a step up from the Chevy line.

I looked long and hard at the Super Duty, which are made here in Louisville but every owner I talked to talked me out of it and into a GM, they all said they wished they would have never made the mistake.

I've been in Jeeps and various other Mopar products for the last 10-12 years and suffered through multiple failures over the years, especially trannies. Lost the tranny on the WK with only 10,435 miles on it and it was out of warranty.
Transmissions have been MOPAR's "Achilles heal" since their inception.

If one were so inclined... I can't be positive since I know next to nothing about diesels, but I'm pretty sure you could marry an Allison to a Cummins... Hell of a combo.

I'd heard Chrysler lost the contract, but didn't know Ford got it. Is this 100% for sure accurate? I like the look of Ford trucks. This might not be a bad thing...

Speaking of phucking transmission and Mopar ... YES mine is acting up now too and my warranty ran out at 70K mine is at 72K so guess what I'm screwed

Nice choice on the truck though ... very nice
