The Aisin is 3 year/180,000 miles, positive
I think The dodge built is the same as the rest of the truck 3 year/36,000 miles, pretty sure.

Yep, 68rfe is only 3/36. This is definitely a strike against Dodge. Crappy warranties like this should be outlawed. On a $30-50K vehicle even.

Well that sucks. I love the cummins but........That Duramax is bumper to bumper 5yr/100k no deductable with free roadside, loaner etc. is looking better every day. I test drove the 6.7 yesterday. That is a quiet motor.

If you really like the cummins you can extend the warranty out to at least 7 years (on the pickup with 68RFE) and probably still be in the same price range as the GM, I heard that dura/Alison is an expensive package. I did get to see a duramax at work the other day, a flat bed tow truck with only 300 HP and auto with a 10,000 pound truck on the back, man that thing had power.

Dura/allison is 120.00 cheaper than a 6.7/68rfe according to the sites. My current one came with 7/70 powertrain standard. I'm not paying for an extra warranty. Bought my last 2 cummins powered dodges new. Haven't brought either in for warranty work. But you never know when you might need it. pricwise on the loaded models there isn't much price difference.

I drove an F450 4x4 Lariat yesterday with the 4.88 (MSRP 55K) about ten minutes after driving the duramax. Duramax will leave it at the light and keep on going. Found out the 350/450 with the lower gears are de-rated on hp/tq.
Like the way the chevy and Fords rode, niether as quiet as the Cummins. Looks like GM will get some business this year.

NO NO NO NO. The duramax is bumper to bumper 3 year36,000 miles. Then there is a 5 year 100,000 mile "power train warrenty". That covers basically engine and trans to that. There is a 100 dollar deduct on the power train warrenty on the engine. (trans etc no deductable). Im not surea bout the roadside and loaner on the powertrain but I dont think so(maybe but w/o going out and getting the manual and reading it I dont think so. The 3 year 36 is no deduct, free roadside and loaner but not the power train.

1996 Gmc k2500 4x4 6.5 turbo diesel, with mods Blew the head gasket, put all new heads, valves, injecotrs gaskets etc on the truck only to get it together and find out it had no oil pressure, and sounded horrible (pry a spun bearing). SOLD
