It's a sad day...

I'm switching over to the darkside. I'm getting a dodge. I'm looking at an '06 or '07, so I can get a 5.9L. Does anyone know if there's an Oasis type report for dodges? Go ahead and rip me, I deserve it. I've been depressed the last two days, knowing I'm getting rid of my truck. My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy for feeling so bad about getting a new truck. Mine's just got too many miles, and the prices are great right now. So, if anybody needs some 7.3 stuff, all mine is for sale(check the classifieds).

You know you can pick up a used '08 Super Duty pretty cheap these days. I would go with a good used '08 before I made the leap to the darkside. You can't beat a Ford truck in terms of durability. They truely are the better truck, bar none. Give the '08's a shot.

I don't want a 6.4 just like I don't want a 6.7 cummins. I like to be able to mod them if I want to, and having to deal with all that emissions stuff will make that harder and alot more expensive (I think)

sevenmalards, I just sent you a reply, thanks

I cried when I traded my Chevy 1500 with a 6.2L diesel (and I don't cry easily) .... That little truck took care of me! It got 27mpg too! Don't worry, my wife doesn't understand my bond with "the Big Girl" .... I don't think it is something that you can explain to women... Good luck whichever one you decided to go with ...

Sold the truck to help pay $1.5M in medical bills! Now I have a F150 6cyl that is slower and gets worse mileage

My dad still has an '04, so I'll still be a Ford driver sometimes. It sucks going from ford to dodge. I was really happy when I got rid of the last dodge to get a ford. I've been looking for an '06-'07 f350 dually x cab auto, but they must be nearly non existent
