Need help deciding on a new truck
 
I recently hit a bear and it totaled my 04 reg. Cab hemi 1500 after paying off my loan I'll have around 4 grand towards another truck I really want to buy a diesel but have not found one in good condition for the amount I'm lookin to spend. In thinking about it I really don't need a 2500 and I've been looking at the at buying a 1500 and putting the 6bt or the 4bt cummins in it idk how much modifications need to be made how much I'm lookin to spend etc. The other type of truck I'm lookin at is building somthing similar to the new raptor. All help and sugestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you want to get the Cummins motor the best thing to do would be to go with the 2500. It is a better truck all around for towing and off road use. It is a heavier duty truck which is good at times when you need it.

I do not know how much work is needed to do a engine swap for a cummins in a 1500. Maybe another member will know and help you out!

Good luck with everything man! Sorry to hear about your other truck!
