fountain1fan,
I had a 98 cummins and it for the most part was a great truck. It was loaded slt package but still not even close to the gm as far as comfort and ride. I also agree the straight axel is the way to go if your wheeling your truck hard, but this truck will see very minimal off road time. There are guys with chipped dmax's running propane injection and the ifs is holding up fine. Like i said i would have bought any of the big three trucks and this one was far superior but thats just my opinion and everyone has one of those. I cant wait to line up against the new 305 hp cummins. Of course i'll let you guys now how that goes.


H2o warrior,
nothing yet but saving my pennies for a sunsation. Hell they build them right down the road from my house.

fountain1fan,
Yes the propane is like nos for a diesel. Check out the deiselpage.com Another place to spend time on the computer. Like i need that, but seriously its been a wealth of knowledge and help with my decision.
And stop comparing a rice burner truck to american muscle.

fountain1fan, Yes the propne is kind of like a NOS system . ONly for the most radical set up in my mind . A lot of maintanance too . A good chip, exhaust and air filter works great and no maintanance !

If your interested in a Wetern diesel chip etc. let me know .I give special deals to OSO members . JOE
