I'm looking for a dodge cummins 95-99 and would like advice on what to look out for and what the pitfalls of these trucks are. I know the automatics are junk and would like to find a manual. Any issues with these motors? Any advice is appreciated.
i would stick with the 12v engines. get KDP fixed and 5th gear fixed. If those 2 things are the fixed and you do regular maintance you will have nothing to worry about because the engine will probably out live you.
I have the auto in my 96'. I did not want the 5pd manual. I want this truck to go fast. you have to give a manual 50 to 100hp(comparing the same truck) more to make it as fast as a auto(good built tranny of course). I am sure people may argue that but if you want quick 1/4 times auto will get the HP on the ground to get the times.
I have plans to put a Goerend in it. Its costly but they will last.
