Call me sentimental but I love the old 5.9s. I have two marine versions right now…the old bread trucks used to come with 3.9 4bt cummins and you could buy the whole truck for $2000
People swap them in jeeps and pickup trucks..my friend put one in a little shamrock center console that was keel driven…it idled at 6-8 knots though lol
Now they are harder to find….wish I kept my 2005 Ram 2500 5.9…that was a nice truck and got over 20 mpg
Might look for one but the problem is the body rust on that generation
I need a new beater truck for going to Home Depot and when the wife goes to garden centers/nurseries
