Big changes in technology and reliability though . . . no comparison to 1984. Direct injection, variable cam timing, water cooled turbos, no turbo lag, . . . You could say the same about overhead cams, four valves per cylinder, supercharing, etc. You can find those in cars from the 20's. But there is no comparison in the level of sophistication.

I just got the F250 you described, only has 670 miles on it. I had been looking for more then 6 months and considered all three, Ford, Dodge and Chevrolet. The F250 won out, but I didn't like paying $39,125 for it!

I'm a Ford man myself although my truck is a Chev. One advantage the new Dodge diesels have over the rest is that you don't have to use an additive to the fuel (called something like urin). Wayne

For now dodge is usuing a ERG system to keep from using urea but they too will be using it soon in theirs soon because the EPA requires lower emmisions in the future and nobody will be spared.

Dodge met this year's requirements on their pickups without having to have the DEF, but they had to add them to their cab/chassis units. My dealer stated 2012 all their deisel trucks with have the DEF tanks. DEF = Deisel Exaust Fluid - a bit easier than that urea name

It came from europe who had clean burn deisel engines way before us and now we are all having to do the same even the large semi trucks are now starting to do the def next from what Im hearing most farmers who haven't bought newer diesel engines will have to retro fit their equipment with the newer engines and catalyctic systems.
