I would say sell it! But thats a bad decision about the jumbo tampax. I would buy a cummins over a isuzu anyday. Why a dirtymax?

I said the same thing. Traded my mega cab for a 07 duramax, worst mistake I ever made. Truck about made me go broke. Ended up selling it for my 09 6.4 I have now and I couldnt be happier.

The cummins is a awesome motor, and the ford is a great all around truck. If you have the resources I would do the cummins swap.

good decision, id hate to see a ford guy trapped in a chevy body lol, as far as the cummins goes im not suprised it blew up, my uncle melted a piston in his 06', #5 piston looked like a melted ball of aluminum and he bought it new and it never had a chip on it, drug trailers the whole 30k it made it and melted down and left him on the side of the road

they all have there downfalls i guess, the newer dodges melt there pistons out, the newer fords blow there gaskets and coolers and the newer chevys go into limp mode a lot and o through trannys. my 2 favorite motors are the 7.3 and the 12v. both workhorses and both last. i happen to love the 99 to 2003 ford bodys and soon as i find a good one i like im gonna get it and do the whole 12v 5 speed out of my current truck into it. cant wait! the 7.3 i had was cool and all but it was expensive to mod and drank the gas down quick. if i was a true ford man(wich im not) i would prolly just have to pay for the 7.3 with crower rods and the good stuff like that, luckly for me i dont care what i am drivin as long as it looks good, comfortible and will hold the power i want to make.

for 20k i would have to sell your truck and build somthin way better.

you brand loyal people are all idiots..... LOL

There all junk, pick your poison. There is nothing wrong with a Chevy or a Duramax. There is nothing wrong with a Dodge or a Cummins---although the tables have turned for a 6.7L cummins as it cost far more money to make one go fast than a Chevy or Ford now days......

:whs: I've been telling people that for years.


If someone offered me 20k for a 99 I'd have the title in hand & be signing it over without much second thought.

Im not brand loyal by any means. I've owned it all, and dodge trucks are great for work trucks and ford trucks are comfortable and you can work the hell out of them. The chevy I owned was a piece to begin with. Horrible frontend, I didnt like the tranny and the rear axle is junk. I know alot of people that own chevys and love them but the one I had just made my decision to not own another one.

IDK.....take a look at my signature I guess???

Never said anything was bad about a 7.3L


Who ever offered $20K was probably smoking dope. Even if they were and had $20K in cash then I would have let them sign a legal bill of sale and moved on in life! Hence the CASH because there is not a single bank in this country that would loan 20k on a 11yr old truck.
