Do not start or participate in brand wars, i.e. my XXX brand is better than your XXXX brand.
When Brand X owners start citing all the alleged problems with Brand Y to make their own brand selection look better, what would you call it? Who in this thread has been citing all the supposed problems with the 6.7L Cummins? Those of us who own them? I don't think so.

Again, please read the actual post and not what you want to read into it. YOU also don't have a 13 Ram so this statement of yours does not make since either.

Hrm, who's been citing powerstroke problems? You can say what you want but I'm not saying they are all bad. maybe you got lucky, maybe they mostly fixed the issue in the newer ones. I'm far from an expert on the subject but if you read Dodge forums some people are still having problems, granted not as many as the previous years and most people still recommend a delete. The class action lawsuit for the 07-09 years speaks for itself, it's not like I'm making it up, it's all readily available via Google. To say that none of them newer than the 09s are having the problem is simply not true. All manufacturers have their problems and none of them will ever be perfect. Especially not when the government is forcing ridiculous emissions and mileage requirements on them. I'm glad I live in a state where I can delete that crap and end up with a good truck with fewer issues and better mpgs in the long run. No doubt the emissions junk will likely be the first part to fail for any of the three.

I plan on purchasing a truck within 18 months and would like any input you can offer. Why did you purchase it over the others? What kind of fuel mileage do you get?
Are you looking for a truck for full time rving?

No state in the United States is it legal to remove emission products or alter them. However it is easier to remove that stuff if you do not have emissions testing. But it is still illegal. I do agree, the emissions stuff is making diesels do way more than abnormal things than they should. But it is all in the name of that sparkly clean tail pipe tip.

You must be kidding!! I never mentioned any Powerstroke or Duramax problems until post #49, and then only to demonstrate the incongruities of a Ford technician pointing out supposed Cummins 6.7L problems while ignoring known Powerstroke 6.7L problems.

AGAIN, actually read the actual post. If there was a Powerstroke question I would have answered it, and I have in other threads. I have an idea, get off the forums and talk to people that actually works on the stuff for the dealers. When you are Ram/Cummins certified and repair the product, then you would actually have leg to stand on as far as the type of typical repairs or issues. Since we are on the internet, I am a Ford tech and a French model.

In point of fact, I've worked 40 years, 35 of those in technical and engineering management, for the company that builds these diesel engines:



So I know my way around diesel engines as well as anyone on these forums, I daresay.

Using that logic, since you work in a Ford dealership as a line mechanic, are you a Level 4 or Level 5 Ram/Cummins tech? If not, what qualifies you to discuss the Cummins HPCR B-series engine as used in the Ram trucks?

Because I know diesel engines, I have chosen the Cummins ISB engines in my trucks, and I've never had one leave me on the side of the road yet.

I am the lead tech and Manager of our truck shop. We service anything from F250's/2500's up to medium duty trucks (including motorhomes) This involves Cummins, Cat, International (a few Duramax's). Again if you would actually read my post instead of putting blinders on for your precious ram brand, I quoted an actual Ram/Cummins tech and an actual current customer of a 13 Ram/Cummins truck. I never said they were failing by the droves but there have been some issues seen. Guess what???? It happens. If it doesn't then there would be no need for a Ram/Cummins cert tech. Just an oil change boy.
