Actually my Powerwagon was a 7400 dollar option and the cummins was only 6500 and the Powerwagon comes with the hemi only. But the cummins is a great motor to.

YOU ARE SO INCREDIBILY STUPID! The thread starts out saying that you can't justify a diesel, but you now say that you paid more for the gas than you would have for the diesel. Big trucks that are good at nothing scream 'little weiner syndrome", far more than a diesel. Here's why. If I see a stock diesel truck, I don't know whether or not the owner uses this truck as a work truck or not, but if I see a PowerWagon, I don't care if he uses it for work because it was more expensive than a diesel. Therefore the only conclusion is that the owner is compensating for something.

It's my fun truck, kinda like a ford raptor, I like something you can go through mud with or take across a field and ride incredibly smooth, like when you gotta get to those good fishing spots. But it does work when it needs to.

Been watching this argument for several days,gas v diesel. It's kindly like a tractor pull,hook her to the sled and it will settle it once and for all. What you need is a good pull-off. Take your diesels and gassers and hook them to a good gooseneck,loadum up with a couple of tractors til you get close to 26,000 GVW, put about 250 dollars each in a pot, winner takes all,just to make it interesting and take off on a 250 mile trip in the mountains of VA and WV, where I pull. Whoever gets there first on less fuel wins. I'll put my money on the the old 5 spd Cummins with 4:10 gears.

Interesting thing on 8/14 at the Iowa State Fair pulls, there was about 10 diesel pickups pulling in a newly sanctioned class. 9 were Dodge 1 was a Chevy. The Chevy took 1st buy a good 12". They also commented on him being the current points leader...

The pulls you"re going to must not be sanctioned by anybody. I hear Outlaw has a list of what you can and can"t do...

The Cummins 5 speeds are rusted out and in the wrecking yards around here. Lets compare a late model EPA emissions diesel with a late model gasser. Get out there approaching 200,000 miles and no manufactures warranty on your particulate filtered and urea injecting truck.That has to pass annual or semi annual emissions checks. The diesel just falls father and farther behind with the gasser with the cost of repairs.
Diesel is going to look even worse with the DI gassers in the 2015 GM trucks. Even the 1/2 ton 2014 with just a 5.3L is impressive with capacity, power and mileage. How much power is required racer boy? You are hauling a high center of gravity load with a light truck, not driving a vette on the track. How on earth did they ever haul 40 ton of freight cross country over two mountain ranges with a 318 in a semi truck?

Ditto - I have pulled thru some of your mountains (kin in Richmond) and you've got some steep pitches for sure, Lover's Leap & Sandstone Mtn. come to mind, but I am sure that those are not the best VA & WV have to offer - Kinda like comparing Vale Pass to Monarch Pass out here, I suppose. And we got better ones than that :twisted:. My '05 Dodge (Cummins, NV5600, 24' PJ & B&W

goose loves them all). So, again, DITTO :!:

That's an old diesel with very little emissions equipment.Lets see where the owners of 2013 emissions diesels are with 9 yr old diesels that are past the manufactures warranty. Today the gasser is the simple, reliable low maintenance engine. That burns cheaper fuel too.

Yup your right that's why today 55% of 2500 trucks are gas. And no adding def fluid. Just gas and go

If I was gonna pick a diesel it would be the cummins no doubt, but if I was picking the gas, it'd be the hemi with 4:56 gears, and next year the 6.4 hemi with 4:56 gears, that 6.4 will be wild, don't care who says what

Son,Son! Take it easy - you don't even know this guy! There's an old saying that goes something like this: 'Everyone is brilliant until they open their mouth.' Think Mark Twain or Will Rogers said that. I, myself, have a lot of opinions & beliefs that others DO NOT agree with. Who knows - maybe I'm right or maybe they are BUT it's not worth showing them that I'm really not very smart by opening my mouth to run them down - just sit back for awhile and watch the blinking lights - you might just learn something that you didn't even consider :wink:

His original post has nothing in common to the quoted archived thread he replied to. Nofbdybs couldn't justify it financially based on his unique situation. G1355 comes on here saying he couldn't justify a diesel, when what he really meant is that he didn't want a diesel, but rather a toy, and the diesel engine doesn't fit the bill for him. He then continues to say that the gas engine cost him MORE than the diesel. Suddenly he looks like a complete (insert word(s) here) for making this post because it has even less merit. I said what I said and meant it. He comes on here every week or 2 to state how great the PowerWagon and Hemi are, and posts something so dumb.
