    just picked up this 06 5.9 cummins. traded my chevy mount on craigslist for dodge mount. Now all you chevy guys i know you disappointed. but if you do your homework the cummins is probably the best deal out there and a lot less costly for injectors compared to a dmax. i love the truck its awesome!

    Like Sam Adams says, Cummins, Always a good decission!

    When you plow with that beast, you'll think you're driving a BullDozer.

    Man I love me some 5.9L Cummins. Wish Ford would source that engine in so you wouldn't have to do a costly swap.

    nice truck, i think you will be impressed when you see how good they can push snow. i would look into a 2 mikron fuel filter kit if you want to be safe on the injectors. good luck with the truck:drinkup:

    Nice looking truck. Did you do anything to the front end to help hold that heavy plow?

    I want more pics of that monster on the trailer. Nice trucks. Welcome to the Cummins club. I can idle around a parking lot and plow just fine. Very slow, but pushes just fine.

    if you can't dodge it, RAM IT! hopefully you have long years of use out of it.
