I drove a 1988 F-250 4WD 5 spd. with a 7.3 Navistar all over this country for about 7 years, most reliable vehicle I ever owned, until I started driving a 1993 Dodge with the 5.9 Cummins, 5 spd. 2 WD. I have driven it now for about the same number of years as the Ford, still own both. The Ford is tired, has about 300K on it, and just won't crank anymore, even in hot weather, and with two batteries. By contrast, with well over 300K on it, the Dodge cranks with just one battery in the coldest weather, doesn't even turn one complete revolution before cranking in milder weather, gets better fuel mileage, and doesn't need to be down shifted in order to make it all the way up and over a typical hill or interstate overpass like my Ford did when I am pulling my gooseneck trailer loaded with a tractor or two. There will always be a special place in my heart for my Ford, but the Navistar V-8 just can't compete with the in-line Cummins, hands down, no way Hosea.
