Cummins...Hmmmm

PLEASE...If you can... fill this thread with reasons why I shouldnt sell out of my 7.3 and go get a Cummins or D-Max... the more I research and the more I have seat time in Duramax's and Cummins the more I think I should sell out.

Sure the 7.3 is rock solid...but what do you do when you want more kick and none of the new Ford offerings hold any substance... Can I keep up without stupid money invested in this thing?

Who here runs with D-Max's and Cummins? and what did it take?...

One good reason to not buy a cummins or a d-max is there not a ford.
if you want a cummins put on in your ford then you'll have a rock solid truck.
but you can't go wrong with the 7.3

Yea dont get me wrong. I love my 7.3, but it just doesnt stack up...and it would cost so much more to keep up, that I could more easily buy into a different truck!

Spend that money on a Cummins conversion.
It's not cheap but it's a lot less than a new truck....and it's an unbelievable amount of fun.

What are my options with the 7.3? Nothing I guess? Any good places to steer me to look into / read up on the Cummins Conversion?
