Past cummins owner / Soon to be 6.4 owner

Hello all.

I wanted to introduce myself. On thursday I am picking up my (new to me) 2010 cc harley davidson 4x4. I wanted a 2011 but feel I need to wait a bit longer for the drivetrain to prove itself. I have had a 05 dodge ram 3500 for 5 years now. I have put that engine through hell at times, and it still pulls like a champ. Cummins is incredible, chrysler is far from incredible. My dodge has fallen apart and has need a massive amount of non-engine related repairs. The transmission is like dealing with a handicapped pan-handler on a daily basis.

I have extensive experience with a 2003 7.3 in a f550, driven lots in a 2005 6.0 f350.

I have a CDL and have put miles behind me in just about every diesel engine you can shake a stick at.

I only feel loyal to whoever is making the best truck for the model year.

I am gonna try a ford again. I kinda lost trust in the blue oval during the 90's. I know its unusual, but my 7.3 broke down all the time. But, it seems like Ford is getting their mojo back.

Thursday I am picking up a 2010 f-350 harley davidson 6.4l. I am pretty stoked.

Im from Canada, but long live American diesels!!
Everything else is crap!

If Canada manufactures euro or japanese diesels, that is news to me.

Really excited to join be back with Ford. One of the conditions of sale i had was that the dealership gave me a brand new blue oval on the grill.

Im from Calgary, been here for the past 7 years. originally from B.C.
I liked living by the coast, but I love the "get up and go" people have in Alberta.
It will be interesting to see how Nissan does with their diesel half-ton. Hopefully it will lead to more advancements.

24 more hours to go before I pick up my truck.

I'm in Calgary too. I'm just waiting for BC to have the "big one." Then, I'll be on the coast without the outrageous cost of living out in Bring Cash.
