KR15 is on a distinguished road

having owned a 1/2 ton pickup, a durango with the 5.2L magnum, and driven a couple 3/4 ton suburbans, i have to say in my honest opinion, i have never been happier with a purchase as i have with my 01 R2500 with the 5.9L Cummins diesel.
I live in Homer, AK. which is about 220 miles from Anchorage. I have yet to have a truck with a gas V8 that could do the trek in less than 5/8 to 3/4 of a tank. With my diesel, i can do the same trip with a mere 1/4 tank of fuel. take into account that when things break down, they are way more expensive to replace, but they seem to last allot longer than the gasoline engines.
all in all, i am more than happy with my purchase. I hope that if you decide you want a diesel that it makes you as happy with the purchase as i was with mine.
