Told my sister to try saving some money, she'd like a truck. Keeping an eye on early-mid-90s F-150s with the 300 and 5 speed, they don't rust as bad out here. It's that or double the money into an early Cummins to fix things like the teflon-based primer and really poor wiring, and add the complications of having a diesel in cold weather. My 90's about perfect for me, but something a little less complicated- and with parts more readily available- would be better for her.

I dont think I could have a gas powered work truck again. My first plow truck got 5 mpg plowing snow. Both cummins trucks get 10mpg plus plowing snow. It doesnt help that I like the screw around sometimes either. Both cummins are turned up is prolly why. I never did with the gas trucks even when they were mod'd.

Far as towing gas doesnt hold a candle to the ol cummins. I have never got below 12mpg towing 10k plus. I also make ~400whp in the one truck. It makes hills look alot easier then my 360 powered 1 ton with 488;s ever did.
