There's a guy on this forum that just picked up an 06 2500 stock in a private sale for 14k. I just believe, as do others that you can find the stock 5.9 Cummins 2500 for a very reasonable price (no wick turned up, no whacked out tuning or rolling black smoke). I'm not towing heavy, maybe 12k once or twice a month. If you need the comfort of new with a warranty the 6.7 guys won't steer you wrong, but neither will the 5.9 guys. I believe if your state does not emissions test it's a financial choice that one must balance between "need and want". I'm like dodge man at about 18 mpg no load, 14 mpg towing. I just do regular maintenance and I'm running about 300 rwhp. Best of luck on your decision. R...
