ReviewI'm back with the second installment... I still love this truck... Wanted to comment on check engine light issues, my dealer worked w/ Chrysler & Cummins and had a couple of fixes... the other thing I observed is even though I'm driving a 6.7l w/ 6A, shift it manually... also run with exhaust brake on at all times... I have know driven 20000+ miles w/ no engine light coming on... a little effort while driving & no issues... With a buddies truck, I demonstrated... Lug it - the check engine light comes on - don't lug, no issues... Keep the revs a little higher the exhaust brake on and it'll be as clean as a whistle... Keep on trucking...
Best FeaturesThe drive line is fantastic - fuel economy now that its broken in is approaching 23 mpg...
Worst FeaturesStill concerned about the front end ball joints - see previous post... Also blown a front drivers side shock absorber which I understand is a common thing on the OE shocks...
