is a 24v right for me

i have a 12v going into my ranger. i have always loved those engines. my question is: will a 24v suit a guy who just wants a louder exhaust and loves the sound of of a cummins? i dont tow. i did take my psd to the track a few times but probably wont with this. no offense to anyone but ive always heard the 12v is better but no one can really tell me a good reason. so do you think i will be happy with a 24v? its a 2k truck. is there any difference between years? one last thing do they have the manual 4x4 or the push button thing? ive got a truck in mind i just need to poo or get off the pot. i would be getting rid of my camaro to get this truck. its really nice but not really me.

The 12v has the most reliable fuel system. No VP44 or lift pump issues. The 12v engines are the most bulletproof, aside from the KDP issue. But, that is alost free to deal with. Less than $100 if you can turn your own wrenches.

Both the 24v and 12v sound awesome straight-piped (especially with stacks and a manual trans. ) My dad has confused me with a Peterbilt more than once.

Having had a BOMBed '97 and '92 Cummins and the '99 24v, I love them all. But, do like certain things about each over the others as well. Get a Cummins, and you won't want to go back to a V8 diesel in a pickup again.

Just to go a lil further with ....

If you get a 24v, you'll want to upgrade the factory lift pump at minimum. They all fail eventually and can take out the expensive VP44 Injection pump. (I unfortunately learned this within 2 weeks of buying mine and had to purchase a new VP and put on a FASS 150GPH.)

as for more info/differences:

Advertised Power 235 hp @ 2700 rpm
2001/2002 (HO) 6spd-
Peak Torque 505 lb-ft (from 1600 to 2700 rpm)
Advertised Power 245 hp @ 2700 rpm
the HO motors do not respond to programmer mods as much as the SO motors do. This is because they have smaller plungers internally, but in stock form, they are a bit stronger. (I've also heard they are better for fuel economy)

as for the 4x4 thing, I believe all of the second gen dodges had the manual shift 4x4. I don't believe they offered push button/twist knob 4x4 in the Dodges until the 3rd gen body style.

If you like the sound of a Cummins, I think you'll be happy in a 24v. Just throw on some gauges (Fuel Pressure, Boost and pyro at minimum, add a trans temp if its an auto), straight pipe it, put on a BHAF and upgrade the lift pump and you'll be set.
