    Who all has a Diesel here?

    Here is my 2004.5 Cummins 4x4 with 4" Superlift on 35s. Got a good number of performance stuff too.

    These days I don't get to play with my truck as much as I want to. Certainly not to the extent of my old Chevrolet.

    '06 w/leveling kit Aero4040xl 285/70 TerraGrapplers and upgraded steering

    Um, excuse me, but do I detect a little bit of GM product on that Dodge? ;)

    The Megacab looks good sitting on those Rockstars and Mud Grapplers. :happy0001:

    No diesel here, but currently shopping for one...more than likely going to be a Ford.

    The Hummer wheels. What's the appeal with them on the Dadges anyway?

    Good eye, Monica! I think it's more the fact that the OEM H2 wheels are a dime a dozen on the used market, which makes them a quick, cheap upgrade from stock steel wheels on HD Dodges and GM trucks. When I put aftermarket wheels on my H2, my stock wheels sold within minutes of posting an online ad...to a guy with a D2500. It's weird how the 8-lug Dodge and GM wheels share the same bolt pattern, but not Ford.

    Two Dodge Cummmins diesels out in front. An '01 with 109k miles I put on it, 20-23 mpg, 4 door extended bed, stills runs like a champ, took out the chip that made it hit 111mph, sure could pass the Elmer Fudds, though.

    Old rough looking '92 that had 277k miles on the broken odometer, went on a note and had to take it and pay for it, Runs strong, not an oil drinker, can pull a car hauler trailer with "some" scrap iron at 75mph. An old dependable keeper for a while. Tool it over 3 or 4 years ago, mileage not ??? .

    I've got two oil burners.

    1. 1973 Land Rover 109 upgraded to mid eighties spec with a 2.5 turbo diesel

    2. one of the daily drivers is a Jeep Liberty with a 2.8 VM diesel. These were a limited run truck and not many folks know they were made.

    Love em both and even have a diesel generator for when the lights go out.

    Nothing to do with the bolt pattern, but everything to do with why I am going with Ford.

    As for the 7.3, I thought I'd struck gold yesterday when I came across a 2001 F350 crewcab 4x4 shortbed with 14k miles on it. Yes, fourteen thousand. The pics online showed the truck to be in mint condition. The phone call broke my heart...the dealership had already sold it.

    '04 Excursion here. I'm running a not-so-much-smoke tune lately. Trying to do my part to be green. :rofl:

    Actually have more power in the boat than the PSD. :devil:

    I'm always on the prowl for a 95-98 Dodge 2500 4x4. No luck yet.
