Cummins??????

K so my search for a new work truck that can give me better than my current 9-10mpg (damn lift and rack lol) is still on....

first i found this one:Cars For Sale: Car Details - AutoTrader.com

its a real nice SD that would almost be too nice to put into construction... also im not too sure ill be getting the kind of MPG i want out of it (17mpg+)

so im now searching into going with a diff diesel.... i really like the Cummins engines but damn are the dodge trucks ugly... but if it will get me in the MPG i want im willing to get one...

so my question to you guys (diesel gods) what year cummins do i want? i did a quick search and found this 04 for a good price:Cars For Sale: Car Details - AutoTrader.com

also i know the stock trans are weak so thats something that im going to have to maybe fix....

now before we get into dodges suck.... remember i agree with you but the cummins engines are great motors..... i need something reliable and that will get me great MPG.... i drive around 100 miles a day with mixed city. highway miles

so let me know what you guys think is the year i need in a cummins?

-Raul

Year I don't think really matters. I think I would be looking at the 24 valve 6 cylinder turbo cummins. But that is me.

I didn't look at the link. 12 valves are nice too though.
