I think that everyone that has a first gen noes that they are bad . I just wanted to say how bad mine is. I have never had a car that could take my driving for a year. My cummins is working on 1.8years and is still bad . I love it. i wouldnt trade it for alot of things. It has never left me anywhere. never had electrical issues. I love my truck. Does anyone else Love there truck. I could sit in my truck an watch the stars. or hang with a girl in it for hours. I could stare at the cummins for hours. I love My CUMMINS

Ok, I think we have Begle1's long lost brother here.

I like mine, too. All 10 of them have had their good points. And bad points. Now that you have said you havent had all these issues, we will look for your posts in the near future with all the aforementioned issues.

well said, I totally agree! I love my truck too! it is rare and and i just love the look of it, the power, the smoke, and most of all what is under the hood! a CUMMINS! I don't know what i'd do without it! it has been beat to crap when it was my grandpas and it still runs like a champ and has never let me down! I don't think i could ever sell it.

I had a 4door dodge. i sold it for 600 bucks. i had a 4bt. sold it because im dumb. I have 2 first gens and i was thinking about putting the single cab driveline in a ford 4door. mid 90s

I've got stock injectors, stock turbo, stock fuel pin turned to the deepest for now. Just the pump cranked! Just waitin til summer to get more money then the fun begins again! then an hx40, maybe some 6x18s or some 435s, not sure what injectors i wanna get yet. A Denny T stage II pin and then i think by then i will need some tranny work! I'm thinkin about doin the 47rh swap so i will have lockup. I wish i had a manual though, My next truck will be! I'm hopin to get a 2nd gen p pump 12 valve with a 5 speed soon...just more money. Oh and the 366 spring isn't too hard to put in, it took me about a day to put in, but now that i know how to do it, it would probably only take me a couple hours.

The relationship Orangeracer has with his truck is largely professional.

The relationship I have with mine is romantic, intimate and quasi-sexual.

don't you have to take it to a machine shop to bore out the bellhousing to get it too fit? or what all does it take?
