Althoug it's an international I'm running in my Ford, I'd have to praise my diesel as well. Mind you I haven't gotten in a whole lot of mud, what I have found was that my diesel gets down and bites in, due to it's wieght. Your not going to throw mud around, and yeah thats fun, but then again thats also how you get stuck or worst, breakthings. I hope to make it through "Tank Trap" in Hollister. So we will just see how the diesels compare to gas in mud. Albiet there is more wieght, but that wieght is over some powered wheels. I guess thats the point I wanted to bring in. Besides you are going to get more miles out of your diesel than you would gas, provided you keep it maintained, mines at 205,000 now. you also get pretty good diesel milage, I was getting 14 mpg while being stuck in LA today, mind you Dodges get better milage, I'd however like to know what you guys with gas are getting out of those V8 or V10's? yeah, ok that was my two cents. All I can say is keep on truckin, and make those gas boys know what they are missing.
