Thats odd we have a 97 dodge on the farm with 362k and it's on it's 3rd trans and second engine. My grandfater's f350 is a 96 with over 500k all stock. Maybe the Ford was built on Monday or Friday.

not sure but the dodge has never had a rebuild and runs like a champ the ford when i hook up to a load of wood doesnt barly wanna even pull it and it just got a new trans not long ago. i heard on dodges the trans can go quick its all in how you run them and mine isnt now and wasnt from the previous owner ran hard it was pulled with though. and i cant recal ever hearing that a dodge needed a new motor are you sure it has a cummins or a magnum?

Well thats strange.. the PSD has over 100lbs of torque more than that 12 valve. Something is not right with the PSD if it can barely tow some wood.

The trans has nothing to do with not wanting to pull. You may have a boost leak or a sensor/ebvp issue or something.

I know a guy w/ an '08 dodge, short box, single cab and hemi. Last I talked to him (like a year ago) he was working on transmission number 3 or 4.. cant remember.


140k miles all stock. Runs like a top, and gets 18-20mpg city. Not complaining.

It was and still is a 5.9. The first one is setting in the barn with the rod sticking out the oil pan. My grandpa bought it in 2003 with 89k to replace the Ford and all he did was replace parts. He was an every 3k no matter what guy to. The first trans let go two weeks after he bought it pulling hay. The orignal engine let go around 140k pulling the 5th wheel. The second trans was changed out due to a converter failure. The orignal trans was dead at 40k or something like that. It has sit for the last two years and the Ford just keeps working. Not near as good as it did in 96 but I think he has his moneys worth out of her.

i dont know what is wrong i got it at an auction thats probably the problem and that load of wood is a really big load of wood cut in 10ft length piled high as we could on the dump trailer but the dodge pulled it to the house until i took it to be deliverd but the ford has a dump so it is used for work my dodge i drive every day to school and havent had any problems except for a blown brake line i guess its all in how people take care of theyre stuff.

Like I said, something is wrong with the truck then. Start looking into filters, oil, CEL's, boost leaks, sticky ebpv etc

yea but if he was just useing it for the farm what condition and how hard was it ran before he got it that has alot to do with it. all my buddies around here that have diesels all have dodges except for like 2 and the one has alot of problems with his and its a 99 aswell. the only reason we got the ford was because it was at an auction and cheap so we dont know how well it was taken care of but my dodge i got from the origional owner so i know it was taken care of.

Depends how you drive it. If you baby the hell out of it and stay out of boost, yes, it CAN feel like a slug. But I also just rest my foot on the pedal to drive. I baby it. If you give it a decent amount of pedal, it will take off like a bat out of hell and hit boost easy.

There is NO competition in terms of speed between these PSD's and any 12 valve. None at all. The 12v is a slug compared to these.
