I converted a 1993 Chevy xcab K2500 SRW 4x4 to Cummins from original 6.5L in 2004 @ 110K. NV4500. Love the truck. Pulls amazingly, and mileage is very good. 285K on truck, 340K on engine. 50% mileage is pulling trailer. No engine issues. Turned up power, but kept 2500 RPM of truck engine (not Dodge). Did the conversion myself. Really like it.

Have cruise, bone-cold AC and everything still works like new. Thinking paint, but never new truck.

I appreciate the info. Is your Cummins a 5.9 12v? What year model? What exactly is your fuel mileage? I would think a 2500 would get better mpg than a dually. Did you lift the cab or lower the main engine support? How did you turn up the power? Did you have any trouble hooking up the AC? If you paint yours, you might consider painting the bed first, then the cab. It's a lot easier that way, and doesn't result in so many dry spots in the clearcoat.
