So you essentially proved my point.... If a 5.9 was around it would have all the emissions stuff. Plain and simple. It's not around because it can't meet that...
He said 5000 miles a year which is not a lot but he also said he will be towing and going on trips with it often. Sounds like long trips not short ones to me... So once again, your point is invalid.
My age has absolutely nothing to do with it. Good for you being able to drive a diesel truck. My 8 year old nephew could figure that one out. I guarantee I've done more than twice as much work building and working on diesels and building and working on racecars in my 21 years than you have in your lifetime. So leave useless points like that out of the argument as they prove absolutely nothing.
