Another newbie with questions

Hi everyone, my name is Jeremy and I'm considering getting a diesel. Before I sign the paperwork, I wanted to join this site and pick some brains. I'm pretty handy with trucks in general but never dealt with diesels. I'm currently enrolled in college taking a Heavy Equipment Maintenace class where I'll be working on CATS. Anyway, time to start a new thread!
