Took the plunge!

Hello Cummins community,
I recently joined this forum because I wanted info on the new dodge cummins 6.7 diesel. After test driving a few new ones and realizing I cannot afford a new one a dealer called me with the news of getting a 2008 2500 quad cab long bed 4x4 big horn with 6 speed. Truck has 13000 miles on it. This truck was purchased by a local and lost his job and could not make payments so dealership gave him payoff and I feel I make a good buy. Test drove truck and it runs as good as new. Carfax and history is clear with no problems other than recalls and an O2 sensor at 11 miles. I hope I'm making a good choice here. I'm trading in my trusty and reliable 2002Ford F350 crewcab 4x4 7.3 powerstroke with 62k miles on it. The dodge has a b & w hitch, line x sprayed in bedliner, brake controller, tinted windows. I'm trading for my truck and 16k cash out door with taxes. I'm excited about my new purchase!

yeah that is not to far from us. Though we have never camped at Lake Rudolph we usually stay at Lincoln State park which is right down the road.

You should be happy with that truck. I have an 08, and no issues. I have been planning on doing the deletes for over a year now, but haven't got around to it. That helps out your mileage quite a bit. Now there are a couple decent programmers for it that make it easy.

well. I'm not starting off so good. Brought truck home yesterday. Got in it this morning and heard chime saying oil change needed. I called dealer and he said that they serviced truck before I picked it up. So when I got home afterwork today, I checked oil and its coal black. My powerstroke oil was only this dark after 5k miles, not after only 50 miles. So wife and the kid and me drove it to Cincinnati to run some errands, I drove truck with Jake Brake on most all the time. All of a sudden, a chime sounded and the yellow engine outline came on and its been on since. I need some help here. I'm not used to all this new technology, especially with the dodges. Truck didn't perform any different than before and after light came on. Is there something seriously wrong? Also, what about the oil being black already? need help please
