Ford > Cummins

Was dead set on getting an 05 5.9 qcsb with 55k miles on it yesterday, but after checking it over top to bottom and taking it for a test drive I am now 100 % looking for a 6.4 ex cab sb auto.

By the way my late 99 F250 ccsb was a better truck. IMO Worst seat I have ever been in, i kept trying to back-off the lumbar and it wouldn't go in any more, just out more. POS Funny thing is when the sales guy got in the truck and pulled on the pillar handle and it cracked and broke off it was like it hit ME in the face! Talk about a wake up call!!!

I cant even list all the reasons on here but i have great pics of how big of POS this dodge really was. After they assured me it cleaned up great and was a "clean" truck. Why is all the plastic and metal so thin?

I was going to trade in my 09 VW CC LUX that has a higher retail price then this truck(NADA & KBB $24k), they quoted me $20,000 + on the phone for my car, but once i was there they said 17,500, (joke)


Anyways, i am now in the market for a 6.4 and cant wait to be back in a Ford truck or just a truck for that matter.

I agree, but then again that is a givin!!! I'm saying that Ford is greater then Cummins.

Let me explain on a 10 scale

Ford is a 10
Dodge is a 4, no wait maybe 3ish
6.4 is 8
5.9 is 9 or maybe 8ish (think injectors and 53 block)



Had my priorities messed up. I should have been thinking about buying a great truck, not motor. Dodge is a joke, should have known better from a company based around mini vans and made south of the boarder lmao

Im with ya though, I'd never own a dodge...having had them as work trucks..they are awful. I dont mind the cummins, pretty sure its the only reason most folk buy a dodge in the first place.

I sure hope so, but you have to admit they are not the worst looking trucks and that cummins sounds good, but how long does looks and sound last. Guessing not as long as
