|Edit: Also, it might be worth mentioning that if I find a Duramax, I'll be doing a NBS dash swap with it. And whenever I get around to it, I'd like to get a set of Ultra Baja Champs and some BFG All Terrains.|
Lol. Yeah right. If you do fine one, you should probably hack off an arm and leg beforehand and bend over for the raping of a lifetime because everyone thinks they're worth their weight in gold.
5.9 12 valve Cummins can be had cheap because you can find whole trucks for next to nothing and they came in a million differet trucks. The medium duty stuff with 5.9's (little freightliner like FL60's, Ford F700-F800's, L7000's, various buses, etc). usually can be had really cheap (1500-3k) because your average joes don't like dealing with stuff that big. And then you can usually part out and scrap what's left and end up making money on them.
Dmaxes on the other hand are all only a decade old and the early ones had a lot of problems. Any of them are too new and exclusive to GM's that it's going to be very expensive to find one. Then you've got all the various problems with the electronics surrounding them, or the VGT turbos f*cking up and what not.
