I switched from a Powerstroke to a Cummins and I'm loving it!!

Yup I traded my Ford in for a 3rd Gen Dodge ram 5.9 Cummins and I'm prolly never going back. That's a bold statement from a 38 yr Ford man. My whole life ive been a ford man and just wanted a change. Glad I did. Heres a few pics and details. 5" Skyjacker lift, 35/12.50/17 nitto mud grapplers built 48re Auto w/ billet internals,MBRP 5" exhaust, stage 2 injectors, brute force intake and a few more odds and ends. Now a few pics. Enjoy

GOOD LOOKIN TRUCK....I also recently switched from a Powerstroke. I really did love my 6.0(the got a worse rep than they deserved), But im lovin my Cummins more! The turbo lag, or lack of low end that the 6.0 had drove me crazy, none of that with the 5.9!

Dont get me wrong there is a soft spot for a F250 7.3 and the new 6.7 is looking promising. I'm way to cheap to $75,000 for a new truck. For me to jump ship was a big step but I'm glad I gave it a shot

Although I never had a 6.0 I've had friends with them. If headed,studded,deleted they were solid and powerful. I am not a kid anymore so I don't like working on them. I just need something that would run its A$$ off. Believe me I found it! Thanks guys
