Ummm are you serious, or are you trying to be funny?


For a good 15grand you could probably swap a 6.7 in.

no I think you have to get a F550 or maybe its F650 to get a cummins in it. No to stir the pot or anything but why in the world would you want to waste a good truck???

550 Still looks like a pickup, but is very heavy. I think you have to get up to the 650 for the cummins option, which no longer looks like a pickup.

You can order a Sterling which is pretty much a dodge with a cummins in it, I think thats about as close as you can get to a "ford" product with a cummins unless its a F650/750

The F-650's and F-750's have the option of a Cummins, but these are Medium Duty Trucks. Chris

You want a cummins.....BUY A DODGE....just saying. I would think that dodge and cummins would and probably have a contract stating that they cannot do much business in the same vehicle classes with a competor. It would be like trying to buy an international truck with a cat, even though you might be able to does it make any sense? Not to me. This is in a way similar to my hatred for Buicks, Oldsmobiles, Pontiacs, or even Fords with a chevy engine in them. they arn't totally the brend thet they are badged.
I think that we had a better shot of getting a CAT or a Ford design engine before a cummins.
These are just my opinions as to the brand loyalty or consistency which I like to see in relation to vehicles. Call me borderline ubsessive compulsive but that is just the way that I feel.

I could be wrong but I think in the F650 you can get a cummins/stoker/ and even a Dmax but I could be wrong:shrug:

Cummins engine will fit in f250 or f350. Diesel World(April 08) printed an article showing the swap. The truck is a '05 and the engine is a 5.9 but sizes are very close to the 08s.

Yah it'll fit but whats hes asking is if he can order one with a cummins already in it, and the answer is no. It would be cool to pick the body style pick up you want and the motor you want but you can't. Its not like big rigs.

Like someone on here said earlier the closest you could get is Sterling with the Bullet. But that is just a Ram 5500 re badged with the 6.7L Cummins, and an Allison, which I have never used but always argue the TS is the best auto I have ever driven but thats personal preference. As for the Cummins thing I don't think this guy is serious, he supposedly has a friend with a 6.4 even then you would know you couldn't get a Cumins, hes just trying to stir up the pot.

ok guys... wasnt on in the past couple days... so here's my answer to everyone;s question

I want a cummins.. I hate dodge's new body style... I like the way the new f350's look.. so i thought why not see if you can get a f350 with a 6.7.... i want a cummins not a powerjoke.... so now that you guys helped me by telling me i cant order a f350 with a cummins.. im just going to have to get use to the new 3rd gen style looking dodge truck's..

So last time.... I'm getting either a 5.9 or 6.7... im done with this thread
