    8.5x20 all alum enclosed, 10k GVW

    Sold my ED a year ago and am now getting around to upgrading my trailer now that I have a Cummins. This is a sweet setup for those trying to stick around the weight ratings on these trucks. Best way...

    ED Betrayal

    I found a really nice 06 6spd 5.9 3500 a few months ago. Sold the EcoD to Carmax for a bit more than I owed and bought the 5.9 and haven't looked back. Fuel is cheap and this will be paid off much...

    My '14 has developed a decent shutter/drone around 1600rpm under slight lugging conditions. A very slight unsmoothness can be detected anywhere between idle and 2000rpm under almost any loads. Seems...

    Another part of long term ownership - for me anyway - is how DIYable repair jobs can be. Do you need to be a certified diesel tech to work on this thing? The turbo is back there a way but it seems...

    Anyone have any positive experiences to share with a 3rd party warranty company?

    In my research, it is hard to find any with good reviews.

    Less Messy Fuel Filter Change

    Did my first fuel filter change today. I found that with the water plug opened and the housing unthreaded past the red o ring, fuel continued to run out of the plug every time I unthreaded the...

    Love my truck, but afraid it may be too much of a liability out of warranty. That goes for most new things these days though, like someone else said.

    Ecodiesel engine noise...Is it about to die?

    26k miles. Mine is definitely clackier than it used to be. Consistently makes the buzzing sound under no throttle deceleration. Have also noticed when lugging a bit around 1500rpm there is a low...

    Downshift noise - Normal?

    I think this might be related to this... Not the lower end knock, but the "buzzing"

    I'm guessing not, or that it's situationally dependent - but does anyone know how deep dealers dig when a rod goes through the block or they start making noise and find metal in the oil drain?

    Interesting, this is not the first I have read of this. I put stock-sized E load range Firestone Destination HTs on my truck and they did not make any noticeable difference in fuel economy.
