no they are a good motor if used and maintained properly with the proper mods done

just after that fiasco i said im getting a chev or a dodge diesel, i was leaning towards the chev mostly for the allison but they are about 3-5 grand more for a comparable truck, i found this one, it was clean well optioned and even has the bed rails for my 5th wheel hitch and a 7 pin in the bed, so at least it was used like im going to use it

and i have towed with diesel, when i worked at the RV dealer we had 2 2500 Gm gassers that were our beat on lot trucks and then 1 2500 diesel GMC all around the same year and hands down the diesel was night and day better, that was when i said i will not buy anything but diesel as my next truck

[QUOTE=Plowtoy;243920]6.0's need to be worked... If it was not driven hard, they don't last. I'm not sure about the newer Dodges, but hopefully the transmissions are stronger than they used to be. My former BIL had a early 00s cummins and put about 5 transmissions in it before he finally sold it. QUOTE]

This is true expecially with the 90's era. Know two guys that have these and one is on #2 rebuild and other is on #3 with average use/towing. Since you have a pic of that missing jack cover..I agree have them get one for you. You dont want grease etc getting over clothes, shoes etc.
