    A couple truck drivers I know heard it.... cummins contract runs out in 2 or 3 years....

    I'm crossing my fingers.... but your probably right.

    It'll just take 2 years to get by all the problems like the 6.0:rolleyes:

    Joe, that won't happen. Cummins and Dodge just signed a contract extension, for like 6 years or something. WHY WOULD YOU EVER WANT TO GET AWAY FROM THE CUMMINS?

    If anything I think they may move to the mercedes diesel after that, just speculation though. Well I guess you got me on that one Griffithtlc. But I still prefer the way the PSD hauls on the highway over the Cummins (stock at least, but remember lets not forget we're buying whole trucks here not just engines, remember the whole package) But you have to admit the PSD will put out just a little more to one up the Dodge folks then it will be GM's turn all over again. Its really great the way it works these days will it ever stop? I hope not. Imagine that, pickup trucks with 1000 lbft diesels..., swweeeettt.

    not only is it another HP, well, actually torque, war, but these engines will be coming with 100,000 mile warranties! I can't wait till I can afford a new one!!!
