I like cummins, tons of torque, hp, easy to work on, Not so cheap to work on, not so great clutches, but over all a great truck...

I have found that the cummins is the cheapest to work on

My old 6.0-money pit just to keep it running
My 6.6-money pit but thats my own fault
My brothers 12v-well lets say I get sick when we compare how much we pay for stuff

That would be one heck of a creation.

Could you use the 3rd Gen Dodge front end look, but the Ford outside mirrors and side windows (with the slight drop at the front of them, that seems to be perfectly placed for hanging your arm out the window), the Ford King Ranch interior, and Dodge Mega-Cab dually style flairs on the back end of a quad-cab short bed dually? Oh, and definitely stick with the 11.5 AAM rear differential that Dodge and Chevy both use already.

Just my opinion of course, but the Gov Lock is a POS. The rest of the axle is excellent.

Your limited slip differential sucks.

Dodge axles come stock with a Torsen Limited Slip...... I think this is the same one in the Chevy's too.

I have seen my buddies 2500 pull out of stuff on street tires that most vehicle would need a wrecker or another vehicle get them out. As far as grenade locker he is pushing 750 rwhp and no issues.

Glad he is having luck with his. I had one blow up with the stock lmm/14 bolt i had before this one at 30k miles. My current one is not acting right either, I do not expect it to last longer. Its not a great design for high power. AS a locker for low speed traction,it does fine, I should of been more specific.

I vote Ford. I have had a 6.0L since the begining and with no major issues. If you plan on keeping it close to stock, just delete the egr and get a coolant filter.

Ive killed to many of them in the 12 bolt chevy and 14 bolt flavors to think different. We will just have to agree to disagree on this.

I am wondering if you are seeing gas trucks. I know specifically the duramax aam rears are different then the gas trucks. I can think of many duramax trucks pushing 500 to over 1000 HP and not one has any issues with the rear ends.

Not sure, I think at one point they were putting 14b SF axles behind the gassers but regardless the gov-lock leaves a lot to be desired. Is it better than nothing? - Yes. Is it as good as a full Detroit? - Hell no.
