    As prices have gone up for vehicles and gas I have kept cars and trucks longer. I just purchased another (used) car. Now my wife and I both drive cars that get good milage. I am keeping the truck in the garage for towing and hunting.

    If you mean new new no, If you mean getting a newer one yeah probablly. Most likely a low mile 5.9 dodge cummins. The year dosent really bother me. I got an 01 and its almost hitting the 200,000 mile mark and hasnt given me a lick of trouble. Well I had to replace a master clutch cylinder but other than that. My dad got a new 08 duramax and its given him bad luck since he got it. Its been in the shop like 8 times in 11,000 miles. I know another guy that has the same truck and it is also giving him problems. Then again everybody I know that has gotten new diesels are all having trouble. wether it be ford, chevy or dodges new cummins. I am kind of a 5.9 cummins fan but thats just me. If I was to get a gasser then it would probablly be the tundra

    The change to the new particulate filter and all the fun green stuff that happened to the diesels really has them acting funny...all brands. I have not run across one with an aftermarket tune that didn't have issues.

    As for me, no. My GMC is 14 months old. Since it is the Denali truck with the 420 hp vette motor...the dealership would want me to give it away in this economic climate. I bet I wouldn't get 50% of the sale price for it. So I'll be keeping this one for quite a while. Which is fine, I love the truck.
