honest opinion on 12v trucks

I'm on a blackberry so long story short, I found a deal on a lightly modded ext cab dually 5spd that I've fallen in love with at a punch me in the nutsack chreap price. Its a 97. Are they decent? Will I have any issues towing etc?

Didn't you already ask about the 12 valve a couple weeks ago? You better snatch that thing up if you think it's a good deal. You won't lose any money, those hold their value well, especially with the manual tranny. Cummins 12 valves are awesome. There's a reason that guys are swapping out their powerstrokes for cummins.

If you don't get the 12V, you might as well buy a car. I sold my '95 and I wish I had it back.

Rob- actually I was asking about a fully built 99 24v but since I'm currently not getting the pay cut I was supposed to I found this awesome modded dually 12v for a lot less than the already cheap 24v I found.

Go for it, the 12 valve is more desireable than the 24 anyway.

The 12V is easier to mod, makes tons of torgue and has the better injection pump. IF the one your looking at is modded, make sure the "Killer Dowel Pin" mad has been done. Also, what trans is behind it and how much is it modded?

because they are simple engines, no electronices, just add sticks a turbo and more air and they have power, no tuning or anything like that.
