Re: 6.9L versus SD-33T

id grab the 6.9 in a minute. ive got an 86 1 ton i use in a hot shot business pulling a 40' gooseneck that has 400,000 plus miles.This truck has been extremely dependable. It pulls loads in exess of 20,000 lbs daily with no problem. Granted it does not have the power of a turbo diesel , say like my 97 dodge cummins (200,000 plus miles). I get an average of 10.4 mpg pulling the trailer empty/loaded (8500 lbs. empty).Only thing ive done to it since i got it at 120,000miles is put a cam , rebuild the injectors, everything else is regular maintanance. Know 2 friends that have gone over 600 k on 6.9's. cant say enough good about the 6.9 . good luck
