Stupid 6.7/6-speed auto?

I'm looking to get into a new Diesel truck next summer. And have been researching all three. Now I am a die hard Ford guy, always have and will always be. But the more I get into the new emisions trucks the more I like the 6.7! Plus I believe that a truck well should be a truck! Not some pricy cadallac wanna be! That said I realy don't like the new super duties. They just are to refined and quite. And you can't find a darn xlt on any lot in my area, there all lariats or king ranches. I like the trans in my dads d-max but the rest of the truck just bugs the hell out of me, like all chevy's do!

So it leaves me with the 6.7, you get more for your money than the other two IMHO. Which I know there are a few glitches here and there, but I'm sure they'll get worked out soon. And I am looking for a 3500 dually but am thinking about going with a slt cab/chassis and adding a hauler bed rather than the standard slt dually box setup.

Which brings me to a couple questions. What is up with the trany? The 2500/3500 models are P R N D where as the 3500 cab models are the standard P R N D 3 2 1. Why is it different? You have the shift button on the gear selector, so is there any advantage to either? Also why is the waranty so poor on these new trucks? As far as I see its back to the old 36K mile, which by todays standards is poor. And with a 130K mile warranty on the trans. What about the rest of the drive train? Is the motor/emissions systems warrantied over 36K? Also what are the advantages/disadvantages going straight to a 3500 cab/chassis?

Well, since nobody else replied yet, I will tell you what I think I know. I think the pick ups have a dodge tranny and the chasis cabs have an allison trans. The chasis cabs also have a lower power rating and are usually heavier (at least ford's are). Other than that, I can't help you.

The c&c's are heavier. My dad's weighed in at 8440 with an aluminum flat bed crew cab 4x4.

Actually NS, the cab & chassis have the Aisin (sp?) tranny, not the Allison. :Thumbup:

Yep, he's right. Big difference between the two. Even though the 2 have worked together before. Because of that one could bet Allison threw a little weight around in designing this one.

Is this true for the cab and chasis trucks also, or are you refering to the pick ups.
