Anybody here own a Cummins?

Post by Woodie on Sat Feb 21, 2015 6:49 am

I own a 1997 3500 Ram Dually with a 12v Cummins and a 5-speed. One of the most reliable trucks ever made. This one is #5 for me, I run them until the body gets swept up off the drive way. Getting almost 500 miles to a tank of fuel. Just curious if anyone else has one...

Yea I'm on number 2. had a 2004 2500, and when it got to 280,000k I bought a 12 3500. The other truck did a bit better mileage. This truck has way more power and torque with the 6 auto, I only have 30,000 k on this baby!
Awesome trucks with the Cummins.

I had an 89 and a 2003 - now have a 2007 dually with a 6.7. I am buying a new one this fall. Had a 78 Lil red express in 78 and sold that to buy a 85 miser with a slant 6. Never owned anything but Dodge trucks in my life.

I have owned an '01 (2500 QCLB 4x4 HO/NV5600 SLT+/Sport in Bright Silver Metallic - I ordered this truck, it was the only new vehicle I have owned to date and probably ever will), an '02 (2500 QCSB 4x4 SO/NV4500 SLT/Sport in black that I bought as a project and sold after I fixed it up) and my current '06 (3500 dually QC 4x4 G56 Laramie in white that I bought with a bad heart and swapped in an '07 6.7 that I had in my inventory). It was tough to find the '06 as I wanted a Laramie dually with a stick but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg as all it really gets for use is pulling my trailers (5th wheel tiltdeck and my 5th wheel holiday trailer) + a little bit of running around.

My brother had a '98 2500 4x4 RCLB 12V/auto and now has an '03 2500 QCSB 4x4 HO/NV5600. Dad had a '92 2500 CC 4x4 with a Getrag that ended up as a dually before it went to a new home. I replaced it for him with a '98 3500 QC 4x4 12V/NV4500 (the unicorn!) It's still around but won't be here for much longer. I bought him a '04.5 3500 QC 4x4 SLT with a 5600 to take its place.

I've had a couple others that I've bought to part out, and an '05 2500 QCSB with a bad heart waiting for some TLC sitting now.

This was what scratched the itch for quite a few years. I've accumulated quite a few parts and pieces and a pile of special tools for working on these over time. Before I got into diesels I had a '76 D100 and an '86 D150. I've had a truck of some kind in the fleet since the late '80s. Never know when you might want to haul something! Razz Plus they're quite a bit more practical out here in the sticks than a car for everyday use. I can't see a time when I won't have a 4x4 diesel in my stable if for no other reason than trailer dragging.
