The 24v came out mid 98. Main thing to watch for is the 53 block, and watch the fuel pressure to the VP44 injection pump.

That is correct, my bad. Yeah 98.5 the 24V was released. I always forget because my work truck is an early 98 with a 12V 5.9.

The "VP pumps" are a known weak point, but are fairly easy to fix. There is also a problem with certain year blocks being weak. Google "Cummins 53 block" and that will tell you all you need to know as far as the years involved and how to tell if the truck has one.

If you've got the 98 12v quad cab 4x4, that's a very desirable truck. They call it the "Holy Grail" and they tend to go for a few thousand over book if they're nice. I was looking for one, but they're hard to find in good shape.

Both are desirable for different reasons, although more people like the 12v trucks.

The 12v is all mechanical. No computers or emissions. The injection pump is legendary (P7100). These truck have static timing. There aren't really any flaws except the Killer Dowel Pin. There have been some late 12v trucks with the 53 block. It's rare though. These are stout engines.

Depending on the year and transmission, the 12v had 160, 180, or 215 HP injection pumps.

The 24v has electronic injection, a better flowing head (2 more valves per cylinder), and can be tuned electronically. Also has features like 6 cylinder and 3 cylinder high idle. The VP44 requires at least 10 psi fuel pressure from the lift pump to survive. Also the 53 block.

Here's some 53 block info:
http://www.stamey.info/Truck/Cummins53BlockFAQ.htm

There are 2 models of the VP44 injection pumps. Standard output and high output. SO are 235 HP 460 LB FT TQ. HO are 245 HP 505 LB FT TQ. HO pumps are only on 01-02 6 speed manual and fuel hard at low rpm's, but are only good up to about 550 HP. SO pumps are on automatic and 5 speeds and are good for 700+ HP. For max power, a lot of guys chose to swap a P-pump from a 12v.

That's a brief overview. Both engines have advantages and disadvantages. Here's some Killer Dowel Pin info:
