Cummins...powered by Powerstroke???

Just thought yall'd get a laugh out of this...over here in the desert there's alot of things contracted out...well the Generators are contracted through Cummins. Anyway, I've seen about 6 or 7 PSD's over here that belong to contractors...and guess what the plates say? They have the Cummins logo, and say "Cummins Middle East". Isn't it weird that Cummins itself buys Powerstrokes for it's contractors in some of the toughest conditions? LOL

smart people, i know a die hard dodge guy but he hates the truck, the only reason he drives it is for the I6 he said if ford had a inline hed drive it, cummins is a pretty good motor but dodge's stink. The trucks prolly wouldnt hold up in the harsh conditions

Maybe true of the old trucks but I am on my second 3rd gen (last was involved in total loss collision) and they are very well built.
