New here and buying a diesel.

Hello everyone I'm in the market for a new rig and have been mentally beating myself up the past week on my choice. Because its not that simple. I had a cummins in 95 it was a great engine in a crappy platform and dodge customer support was horrible. Since then I have owned two ford f-150 and two chevy 1500's. Four of my family members two retired and two still work for ford so I get the A-plan deal. Anyone want to add their 2 cents about what they would buy?

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

If ya don't mind doing some reading, you can go up to the top Nav bar and click on "Forums" and then scroll down to the list of the various year models and the engines they came with. Might help you narrow down your selection.
