    I have both, but my diesel is a 7.3. a little over 100000. Miles. It's an 02. So it's got life left.

    Have several, 7.3 ford is bullet proof. Cummins in a 09 dodge is pretty good. Could not pay me to get a new powerstroke. Buddies with a truck/diesel mechanic that get rich fixing 2-5 year old powerstrokes. Has nothing good to say about them. With all the emissions crap, just getting worse. I love the sound and smell, but just cant see them as a wise investment. Bullet proof simple and cheap diesel fuel all are from days gone by. Now so complicated and fuel is crazy for diesel. Foreman has the cummins cause it makes him happy but financially, not wise. Just my opinion. Plus if its your daily driver...while sounding cool, damn do the neighbours hate it when you hit your fob to warm it up at 3am in the drive.
