So after skimming through the SCT/EPA thread it got me thinking if I should look to "trade down". Currently have a 2013 6.7 Powerstroke and was thinking of the 2003-2007 Cummins trucks ( really want the 6spd manual). Any thoughts from you guys?

Good luck finding one that not falling apart for less than the cost of a decent condo.

why? afraid you wont be able to delete stuff on the current truck or what?

it'll still be done, it just wont be so blatantly simple.

My current truck is already deleted just wasn't sure if they might crack down with emissions laws or anything else like that.

I know Dodge trucks aren't known for their quality minus the drivetrain and even still it can be questionable.

Older ones aren't known for their reliability.
New ones still aren't perfect by any means but a tad better than the trucks in the early 2000's

I think you'll be fine. Unless you want to save on money* or really just want a manual truck, stick with the 13.

*As who knows how much of a money pit the cummins from 03-07 would be.

Thanks Blk04L, my truck is almost paid off and while the manual might be fun I'll take your word on the money pit part haha!
