Chill out dude . opinions are like well you know... we all got one .

BTW whats wrong with toyota and Sanger

I agree that some of these boats (23-24-25 footers) would be towed safer behind more truck but its not a necessity to have a 3/4 ton diesel truck . Also just to let you know I work in a truck shop and I see all the emissions issues on the new diesels that are broken down all over my shop and going in for warranty repair .

LOL my 6.0 needs something every 3-4 months and between there shes getting $200 in oil and filters!

But I haven't had any major problems since I've owned it. Studded, deleted, o-ringed heads, coolant filter really help out. You can definitely have catastrophic problems with any diesel but it's the small things that add up over time and over 100K miles.

In the past 6 months I've had to do new batteries, FICM, new alternator and just the other day a new radiator. All of these were replaced before they did more damage than needed.

hahaha! No doubt. They are not cheap to drive. Doing the oil changes myself for my Cummins still costs about 150$.

Last month I had a local shop do oil / filter, front and rear diff, transmission flush / fluid / filter, and the transfer case. The bill was over 900$. Damn truck takes a total of about 9 gallons of synthetic fluids.

At 90K I had to replace all of the ball joints and steering linkage. That was another $2500. The heavy duty trucks are much tougher on steering and suspension components.

now that we are on the subject you made me remember I had a new thermostat and coolant flush done as well only to replace all the coolant again with the new rad. I pretty much do all my own work so that helps a bit.

I had a coworker the other day ask if changing my own oil made it about $50. Got a good laugh out of that one. Owning a diesel is like college football... You gotta pay to play

There's difference in suspension/transmission etc c'mon man you have to know at least something lmao.
Sorry man but you are talking out of your ass.

Tow ratings put on trucks by any decent manufacturer follows an independent ratings system (SAE J2807). The standard of these ratings far exceed what most manufacturers we're putting on trucks years ago which is why the ratings have come down over the years.

Sure a diesel will do a better job in most cases but that doesn't mean the gas trucks aren't up to the task of pulling their rating.

I think maybe you need to educate yourself on whats really going into these trucks rather than just drinking the coal rolling Kool aid.
