    diesel gasser? i dont see badges, although looks like it has an aftermarket exhaust. what problems were you having with the ford? was it a 6.0psd?

    looks good though.

    Looks good, I think that one is a Cummins. To me, my Ford is more reliable than our Dodge.

    Looks good as long as its not a Power Wagon cause you can't put a plow on it.....

    I see you are from Simsbury,, I've bought several diesels from Mitchell Dodge in Simsbury and have had superb service from them, event though they are 60 miles away.. It is worth it to me.,

    Its diesel. I had a 6.0....... Turbo, oil cooler,EGR cooler, head gaskets, FICM, all went in a year and the heads were leaking again when it was traded in with 75k. The dodge starts on the first crank unlike the ford that cranked 5 or 6 times before it started and i get 20mpg around town.
