Where's the 10 inch lift, 40 inch tires, 26 inch wheels l.e.d. light bar on roof and grill, blimp sized fenders and 50 decals of all the product manufacturers you bolted on your truck? :dunno:

Best word of advice I can give is don't buy a diesel based on brand loyalty.
The brand will not be loyal back.
Research all 3 in various years, in the end you'll find they are problematic.  Just gotta decide which problems are worth having

Don't sweat the DEF.  You can go 5K miles if you aren't towing, and 2-3K if you are towing or hauling heavy, between refills.  Filling the DEF is about as tough as filling your washer fluid. 

Thousands of trucks deal with it every day.  It's no big deal.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Had a 2006 2500 Duramax that I put 300K on it with very minimal repairs in 8 years, had a 2014 2500 Dodge Cummins (granted motor was great rest of truck was crap)  POS that I put two trannies repairs, ball joints, rear axle seals, wheel bearing, computer and a body that dented like a Coors light beer can on a night in Tuna town..  POS!  Traded it in at 40K for another 3500 Duramax - 2015 and now have 56K on it and back to smiling and enjoying the ride, comfort and the reliability.....     As an equal opportunity guy - Ford are cool too....

Thanks for all the replies, very mixed bag or pro's and con's which I somewhat expected.  I also like that no one brought up the Titan XD, silly Nissan trying to play in the big boy league.

9 years ago when I was looking for a new diesel pickup to replace my beloved Ford F250 6.9 diesel, I bought a Ford F350 V-10 gas. Been a great rig. Have not missed the diesel engine.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

I have bought two Dodge's in my life, my first and last. Love the Cummins and Mercedes G56 6sp. The rest is a cheap pile of scrap.

The Cummins 6speed stick is a workhorse and the only reason to buy a new Dodge. I'd consider a new one but you can't take the new emissions crap off a commercial vehicle, big no no

As far as deletes go.....is that something that some shops will do for a customer or is that something a mechanic would/could get in trouble for doing?

It's illegal for the shops to do the deletes.  H&S got busted for removing emissions stuff and they basically got shut down.  Unfortunate because they made killer tuners which are now gone or on a black market.  Some dealers won't touch your truck if you have the emissions stuff removed, even if it's for an oil change.  Most will just turn their heads for an oil change.  But if you have a major issue, you might be searching around.

I have a 2012 cummins 6.7 fully deleted with an H&S mini maxx in it and 5" straight pipe turbo back.  If you're looking for better mileage, deleting is the only way to go on these newer diesels.  I am on 37's, but average around 18.5 - 19 with mine in a street tune going 75 on summer fuel.  If I knock it down to 60 I'll get 20-21 mpg.  I bought a 2012 because of the DEF fluid issue, which I agree isn't a big deal and you can even delete that too on the newer ones, and the 2012 only has one fuel filter.  In 2013 I believe they went to two fuel filters.  Everyone has their own opinions on the brands.  Knock on wood, I haven't had an issues and have several buddies with cummins and they haven't either aside from ball joints which are common on dodges.  Each brand has their own issues.

"fully deleted with an H&S mini maxx in it and 5" straight pipe turbo back."

This is the exact way my 2010 F-350 was set up.
Awesome combo especially if you let it breath better too.

The mini max is awesome and the street setting is perfect.

Here's a pic of my '09 F350, 6.4L, SD, 6 speed manual with 56k, male anatomy enhancement device. :chuckle: Had 46k on it when I bought it in January. Has egr delete and that's it. I found the previous owner and he said it had a Spartan tuner in it but who knows where that ended up. I love this truck. Haven't had a single issue with it yet, knock on wood. I traded a 2011 Chev 2500 Dura Max in on it and don't regret it at all. I bought the Chev used and never had an issue with the engine or tranny, they were great. It was just all the other stuff like the DEF issues, the heater motor went out the middle of last winter over in E'burg during the cold and snow, not fun. Just got tired of the issues and went back to the Blue Oval.
