Default Advice needed for Purchase of a Dodge 2500HD 4X4 5.9 Cummins

Hey Guys!

I am new to this forum and I have a few question for you guys driving the diesels. I currently have a 2001 F250 with the 7.3 diesel and it is getting POOR economy (15 MPG highway), and barely pulls a 5K lbs trainler ( I suspect boost leaks).

I am looking to purchase a 2006 to 2007 model 2500HD Megacab 4X4 (pre-emissions) truck.

My Questions for you guys:

1. What type of gas milage (economy) are you guys getting out of this type of truck, and what configurations do you have (Auto/manual tranny; rear axle ratio; and any mods).

2. Is there anything to watch out for when purchasing a Dodge with the Cummins? What type of problems do these trucks run into that I can check for before dropping a lot of cash?

3. Any other advice you might have is VERY welcome!

Thanks in advance!!!
