I think it depends on what oyu want o do with the truck. Toy? Im a huge 12V fan (obviously because I drive one) I disagree, they are cheaper to mod up, 900 bucks for injector opposed to 1500 bucks. the problem is that they are worn out trucks by now, oh the motor will last forever, unfortunately the body wont (cummins os the best motor ever, its only problem is that they wrapped it in a Dodge...)
If you looking for a daily driver, I'd get a newer one, more comfortable. Im not a fan of the 6.7s, too many bugs to work out yet. if your gonna mod it up, 02-04. stock, Id go 04.5, more power stock.
VP trucks are good and you can still find osme low mileage one out there, the only problem is that the VP44 pump can be a 1500 dollar failure if hte lift pump got weak, or the PO chipped it up and didnt do any support work to the lift pump. VP truck's problem is they start to get starved for fuel, get hot, and bye bye injection pump!
take it as my 2 cents...btw, Im a mechanic, if that adds any clout to my opnion is up to you =-b
