He uses OEM parts except the O rings. I went to Ford and bought OEM O rings myself. Like six bucks a cylinder for peace of mind.
    I was and still am very happy with there services. Much better that 220 + bucks for new injectors.
    Good info. I deal mostly with Riff Raff. Got the upgraded/improved main oil pump from them and one of their "blueprinted" HPOPs when that had to be replaced.

    Even though I had no major issues with my Ram before, I bought a 2011 F250 because of the good deal I got. As far as engines go, they are both very powerful. The towing capability of Ford is a lot better though. It can tow almost anything. My rig is pretty much stock right now but I'm thinking of adding 2-4" suspension lift so that I can fit bigger tires.

    Older Chevy's don't seem to earn much credit.


    Want; used, under $10k, diesel, 4by4, extended cab (not crew, but crew OK) 6.5' bed, 8' is not out of the question.

    I think I want 250/2500's and up. Towing dual wheel work trailers regularly and want to be able to tow camper and maybe 5th wheel some day.

    The M939A2 models use a newer and smaller Cummins 6CTA8.3 504 cu in (8.3 L) turbocharged inline 6 cylinder diesel engine developing 240 hp (180 kW) at 2100 rpm and 745 lbfft (1,010 Nm) torque at 1,500 rpm.

    All models have an Allison 5 speed automatic transmission with a two speed transfer case. The front axle was engaged in low range

    A little tuning can go a long way with this one..

    If you have to ask, you won't like the answer..

    BUT about 6 MPG.. 10 with a good tailwind..

    Army vehicles are NORMALLY built to cruising range, not MPG.. MPG only comes into play when deciding how big the fuel tanks have to be to get it 300 miles.
