Re: Wanted reviews of the 2500 w/ Cummings
new or old cummins hands down and for pulling it cant hardly be beat.
the new cummins puts out 305 hp the ford puts out 350hp but doesnt have the tourge, and makes it power higher in the rpm range.
me personaly Id try and find a 98.5 truck and older because they dont have the computer junk and being only 12 valve isnt bad.
dont go off horepower rateings go off tourge and where its made.
actualy dont go off rateing go out drive a ford and dodge and get wichever you like best, dodge will get better mpg pull better cause it ,makes more tourge in lower range, but the ford will pull ahead of the cummins if its able to oull the rpms like getting good run at a hill, the ford wont get the fuel milege the cummins gets, Ive seen new fords get as low as 12 intown 14 on the road. cummins get 18-20 unloaded with a few getting in 20-22 range.
both are good trucks. 2500 0r 3500 though the dodge 2500 is heavier duty that the ford 2500
