im a traitor...i think

ok, so im a ford guy and i own a 94.5 powerstroke. ive been tossing the idea around, of getting rid of my truck and buying a dodge with a cummins. haha please dont flame me. if i do get one it will have to be an ext. cab, 4x4, black, with a manual trans. its hard to find, but i want one. i need to test drive one to see how i will like driving one, but i think thats what i may go for. opinions? im just worried about the transmission. ive heard horror stories

With the manual you should be fine. Clutch may be your only issue once you start getting more power out of it. Are you thinking 12v 24v or common rail? From what I've heard the 24v's are kind of hard to get TONS of power out of but they still run good. Common rails are pretty sweet, I like how they run, and 12v's are nice too if you don't mind getting your power mechanically instead of with a chip.

why not just do a cummins swap into your rig? its the perfect candidate for one. i seen a obs around here with a 12 valve swap and it is so sweet. if it were me i would buy a 98 tho. or is it the 98 and 1/2 thats the good one?

the 98.5 is when they put the 24v in it and those trucks are golden in my eyes. except for the fact that my buddys dads 98.5 dually got tampered with and is now being rebuilt due to stuff in the fuel that made the motor just gel over
