Stay away from the 24v cummins at all cost unless its had the proper work done on it. And basically, you could flip a coin between the 7.3 or the 12v. Take the rest of the truck into account, rust, repairs, accidents, major issused addressed(or not) and most importantly, how it drives. The Ford has a more comfortable, better quality interior, and you can't go wrong with the powertrain of course, little bit better economy but can be a bear to drive sometimes with the heavy steering, on-center slop and the seemingly 12.5 turns lock-to-lock. The dodge will drive/steer much better, better feel, track down the road better ect. Also, its a bit easier to build the cummins for more power than a 7.3 is. Plus, Ford owned a share of Cummins back in the 90's so how can you really go wrong? I'd still go Ford for the dependibility reasons. The 7.3 isn't recognized the "the best" for just any reason.
Enough with the stacks already...
