Hey guys

I am selling my 02 DMAX to come over to the blue side! Am I making a good choice buying a 6.4? What are yall seeing for mileage after egr and dpf delete and have any of u been hassled about those deletes?
Also how are the trannys i the 6.4? I want to run a 4-6" lift on 35's with exhaust, egr delete, dpf delete, intake and either sct or H&S tuning. Will the trans stand up to this?
Any info would be awesome. I think these trucks look/sound killer and I def want to try one. My Dmax has been great to me but, it feels like im driving a damn 1/2 ton sometimes especially while towing...

I have a 27 gallon tank and on hwy i can get 400+ out of a tank. I have yet to see what im getting for MPG. The tranny's on these truck are very strong for stock. Im running spartan tune with the 300 tune as my DD and i have 185k on my truck. If you do a egr, dpf delete, intake and tune you will be good to go. With this you are making the trucks life last longer. You could always do a tranny and coolant filter to help down there road. You dont have to lift it to put 35's you can just do a leveling kit and clear them with no rubbing.

im' @ 19.5 mph highway @ 72 mph hand calculated. with the mods in my sig and stock wheels and tires.. 37's are in the garage going on in a few weeks.. my days of getting close to 20mpg on the highway are close to over. but its the look i'm going for..

I'm leveling my truck and adding 37x13.5x20's so take that for whats its worth..

Do a DPF Delete, intake, and exhaust with a tuner, Spartan, H&S, SCT... you wont be disappointed and regular maintenance truck should run for a long time

you wont be disappointed with the performance of the 6.4. I bought mine used and soon after found out that it needed a new oil cooler and a new egr cooler as well.

I deleted the dpf and put a 5" flo pro exhaust
h&s mini maxx tuner with HD300 tunes
egr delete kit
and a new oil cooler.

truck ran great...i just wrecked it though.

next step was gonna be an intake and coolant filter (and whatever other kind of filter i could add to it)

they're great trucks, you just gotta do a lot to them to make them bullet proof. delete all the problem areas, delete the problems.


since i wrecked mine, i took my dads 2011 dodge laramie to the valley last week. pulling about 15k lbs of citrus, man that truck takes off slow. my ford would leave from a stop as if the load was only like 10k lbs.

Thats what I figured... Thanks for the correction! So are the transmissions in the 6.4 pretty tough?
