I agree, Cummins are good engines. Just like any engine though, they have problems. I don't hate on the Cummins engine, I hate on the Dodge trucks they're in.
Anyways, I had to quote this, cause I disagree. The Cummins might be complicated, but in comparison to a 7.3L, they are not. For example, the fuel delivery in a Cummins is SIMPLE and CHEAP compared to a 7.3L. How much do injectors on a Cummins cost? In comparison to injectors on a Powerstroke?
IMO, the Cummins 5.9L is a simple simple engine.
Matt, if you want out, now is the time to sell. Take the 2500 and have a down payment on something else. I think you're on the right track looking at diesels. Just be careful not to catch the bug. If you think wheeling is expensive, try modding some of these diesels. Parts can add up fast.
