If you had to do it all over agian which one

Hello to all,
Ford is buying back my 2005 PSD under the lemon law here in california. And know i need a new Diesel. Which One? With all you out there and knowing what you know about the new 2008 models and all there weak and strong points. If you had to do it all over again which would you buy.
This doesn't come around to many times for people that a major Truck manufacturer would buy back there lemon. I want to get it right and not waste my money. I have done my research, and i would now like to ask you. Would you buy the PSD 2008
Duramax Lmm 2008
Cummins 6.7

Thanks for your time
Daddy over the Road

Thats a tough one man.. My opinion , I would never go with a Duramax and Dodges are ugly.. Only thing good about the Dodge is whats in it. So I would say 6.4 until it may choke and Ford ditches international.

we have 6.7 mega cab and a lmm at our shop and they are both running great the mpg suck but you would get that with the 6.4 as well, if it were me i would go with the 6.4 (it looks the best too)... but like i said our Lmm and our 6.7 are awsome to drive!

The beast- 2005, F250, EXT Cab, Long box, 4x4

Performance- AFE air-intake, 5" exhaust, SCT, Casserly 225 sticks, ATS fuel system, ATS Trany, ATS Aurora 5000 turbo, oh and a Banks inter-cooler (I wanted a spearco but got a good deal)

Exterior-aka the stuff that slows it down
BDS 6" lift, 35" tires sittin on the stock rims
Interior- Cobalt Gauges, Pyro, boost, tranny and fuel pressure, 13% window tint, oh and cant forget those floor mats...

D-max. Excellent engine/tranny combo. Only thing I've heard about the new trucks is the tranny lines sometimes leak (GM changed the crimp design). DPF is easy to remove and there are easy ways to stop regen, IF you are looking to do that.
