Another Dodge?

Hey all.......sold my 06 2500 4x4 auto diesel last year and looking at another, 08+ cummins or 08+ 250 diesel. Im here to see if you dodge guys are having any major problems or issues, or if there should be any hesitancy in my possible desire to make another cummins present in my driveway. My last cummins was awesome, qc, short bed, 4x4, 6" superlift and 37" pro comp x-terrains. I tow sometimes, but mainly use it for hunting and camping. I most likely will not do anything to my next truck except for nice 6-8" lift kit and 37s again. Im hesitant to modify the new motors cause of all the DPF bs. So.....what are yalls issues.....anything to look out for? Why should I not consider a 250 diesel 08+?

I have 86,000 miles on my 07 6.7. Its been trouble free. What I can tell you is they like to be driven hard or at least a heavy foot on the go pedal, it will keep the dpf from plugging. People who don,t tow or use it mostly in city driving stop n go traffic are the ones who have trouble.

Remember not to talk bad about farmers with your mouth full!
