Question 2011 Underhood Complication

Does anyone else find it a bit scary looking under the hood on these 2011's? Makes me feel like other than oil changes, air filter, or other basic
Mods: CAI, exhaust, etc. I may be hanging the wrenches up.

Even serpentine belt changes or alternator changes look like a train wreck of dismantling. And don't get me started on swapping an intercooler or such.

Hopefully these are dependable enough its a non-issue

Any thoughts?

Thats what I was thinking as well. But its no better on any other brand either. Even the 6.2l gas engine is just as bad. The days of jumping up in the engine compartment with the engine to work on it are long gone.

....now where is my shoe horn...

Ya, I think the only one left with an element of simplicity in the Cummins platform. I'm sure its also a function of being an inline motor and allowing more access to the engine bay.

These 2011's SD's look like a spaghetti bowl under there. Kind of sad.
