I do not know how to create a pole if somebody would like to start one on this topic please do.

My question is how many of you plan on trading or selling your 5.9 CTD's
for the new 6.7 CTD's this coming year. I have a 05 1500 HEMI and I'm looking to upgrade to deisel. Right now for some reason well at least in the Houston market no CTD's are around....only a few. I hoping yall do i need more options. I'll take any 5.9 CTD over my gasser....03 - 04 - 04.5.
This post is to give me a idea of what will be out when the new one arrive. Does anybody know the date for the new roll out? :gr_patrio

I'm upside down 5,000. I trying to stay around the 22,000 mark for used. I need to stay low because i have a 3rd income i'm depending on.....witch might go away in the next 3 years. Anyways I have 10k to put down on the next truck 5k for upside down and 5k for down payment....I'm looking to stay around 425-450 beause the 3rd income issues. Right now the money is used for toys!!!

actually today i started talking about getting an 06 1500 Hemi. I love my cummins and i complain about my hemi having enough power, but for the college kid the diesel just doesnt work making short trips. i try to get it up to operating temp every day just so the engine is happy but it uses so much diesel.

I bought a new 06, as I do not want to buy the new engine. I that the new engine will go through normal first year issues and/or the trans may have issues with the additional power. Plus the price was right for the "in stock" 06 I got..... employee priced w/free tint and leather interior.

After reading all about it in diesel power there is no way. why would I want all those emission things to go wrong and possibly the mods will not be there. All I need is a programmer and I'd blow the 6.7 numbers out of the water.

I'm keeping the 5.9 for one I just don't have the cash to throw around, secondly I've never trusted first model years and this is a biggie even if I wanted one I think I would wait a year or two and let any kinks be worked out.

That and I am hoping to see how many miles I can get out of my 5.9 41k and counting.

My 03 has been great. I even changed all the normal things that go wrong with upgraded parts before they broke. I just got the itch for a new 6-speed so I'm giving mine to the dealer on trade with $8000 worth of mods on it. I promise you this! I will never spend so much on hard parts for a vehicle again knowing that I will be unhappy in 2-3 years and trade it in. I swear I hope I keep my new 07 Dually forever.....

I'm sure Dodge will want quite a bit more for the new motor, GM raised list on the DMAX allision combo a litttle over a grand for 07 $7600.00 (would suprise me to see it go higher on trucks built after Jan. 1)

I got her used a year ago, I also have the six speed the NV6500.

Only problems I have had were a faulty switch or the reverse lights, a pad falling off the parking break and some minor issues with the AC controls and condenser. But mechanically in the year I have had it there have been no issues, I haven't really towed anything major yet, but coming from a Acura CL-S and a WRX . . . well I drive hard from time to time on the roads and well the dirt roads . . . you know how trucks are.
