Need feedback from the 5ers! Test drove both the 2500 Dodge Ram High Output 5.9L Cummins Diesel and the Ford 250 SD 6.0 P/S Diesel. As I'm sure you know, Cummins has a good rep; however, I am impressed with advantages of the new drivetrain (automatic 5 speed) diesel combo of Ford. As I said, I drove the Ford 6.0 P/S which had a Mexico production date of 6/5/03. I'll Need to pull 10,000 to 12000 lbs. of fifth wheel. I like the Ford power train over the Dodge, but given what I've heard about the Ford 6.0 troubles (seal leaks, Turbo's blown, hesitation on acceleration) it leaves me wondering. Any forum memebers experience with either the Dodge 2500 2003 Diesel or Ford 250 2003 Diesel would be appreciated. Does anyone know if there are fixes to the Ford 250 S/D Turbo Diesel 6.0 due out that makes a wait to purchase worthwhile? If you do, I can wait. What surprises me is that Novistar(International) makes the Diesel engine for Ford and, if my info is right, has been driving them for two years. If that is true, does anyone know why the problems haven't been resolved by know?
