I know I know its not my recommendation, but my Uncle is a contractor and needs to move to diesel. He is being told to buy the new dodge with the exhaust brake. I don't know anything about them if you all have any opinions please opine

I know that for a work truck, I've heard from many people that ford is the best all around truck. For frame, pulling power, tranny, chassis design, and motor. You can't go wrong if you are leaving it stock. that's what I've heard

Yeah I thought I had him talked into a 350 or 450, but he isn't too keen on the regen thing. Does dodge do the same?

I'm not sure. I thought all the new diesels had DPF's, but I'm not sure if they had a regen mode or not. I would assume so...

All the new Diesels including Dodge are required to have the DPF and they all have a mode similar to the Ford that when the filter gets too clogged the exhaust temp is raised to the point where it is all burned out.

My vote would b e for an 08 F450.

I totally agree, they all have a dpf and some sort of regen mode.

i Drive tow truck for a auto repair shop here in MA and we do towing work fro the local dodge dealership. In the past 3 months ive towed the same truck 2008 dodge ram 3500 4x4 CC mega diesel to the dealer 4 times due to loss of power,tranny stuck in park, and no start. The guy that owns the truck is getting tired of it being in the shop, everytime i tow his truck i tell him how i love my PSD, weve also got 2 more PSD's and 2 international flatbeds. So from my point of view i dont care for the dodges but ive only towed that truck no other new dodge diesels
