Re: Cool truck (27th Jan 09 at 3:11am UTC)
 
I drove a H1 hummer when I was in the military. The 6.2 is the biggest and slowest turd in the world! The only reason the military used them in their trucks was because detroit was the lowest bidder. The military is cheeper then you think. Ask anyone who has been in the service.


The 6.2 is a turd and had no power whatsoever I can argee there but I have seen some 6.2 with a banks kit haul ass too! you also have to remember the amount of weight the thing is pushing all the time too those are heavy rigs and all the gear on top of that...
Detroit being the lowest bidder doesnt explain why they still use the design today expecially with a price tag of $8500 from AM General, I have friends that were diesel mechanics in the air force, those 6.2 things do run forever though if maintained, the 6.5 has a much better head and the addition of a turbo which made them much better motors, the civilian H1's got duramax's for a few years while they still made a civilian version and the military version stayed with the 6.5{Confused} ? why{Confused} ? money{Confused} could be{Confused} idk

true, the cummins was the same way with the 1st gen 12v. Heavy and slow! With a few mods they can be super fast.

On a side note, I drive a dumptruck, and we have two of them a smaller 5yd bobtail T800 with a cummings, and a larger 93 T800 10 wheeler with a detroit series 60. And the detroit powered larger truck would out haul the cummings turd anyday of the week, the cummings can barely get out of its own way :hengl:

Honestly I hate saying this cause Im a big chevy guy and sworn hater of the blue oval...lol but Id take the 2002 F550 7.3 flatbed truck at my drilling company anyday over a most cummins pickups. wasnt that fastest truck but would pull anything the F550 brakes made it really nice towing but thats to be expected with that weight rating. Most Cummins guys just havent owned anything else..I knew a gung ho cummins guy and once he drove a d max he sold his dodge and bought a chevy and he'd ran cummins duallys for years for his appliance/AC business, but ive seen some serious built cummins that pull great too and the 12V 4bt and 6bt motors due last a long time and are a strong design

Whatever . I driven them all also 6.2 H1's, 6.5, idi p strokes, my 7.3 {Rolleyes} , old ass navistar fords, d-max, DT466, some wacked out isuzu 6 cylnder, Volvo with whatever the hell was in it, 12v, rotory and direct inected, stock 24v, and Jimmys 800 hp Dodge. and I have to say out of all them I liked Jimmys 800 hp 1250+ ft lbs. the most {Grin}

But what I wish I could find is a 98 12v Dodge 5spd 4wd, short bed, sport that is just one cool truck.

God gave me a superior brain over the rest of the animals, so I could exploit the planet.

Re: Cool truck (27th Jan 09 at 5:50am UTC)
anything built is cool but comparing stock vs. stock is what Im talking about and those mods dont make any of them too reliable and practical for normal use and mileage goals of the truck. How about Banks Twin turbo Dmax kit 700-900 horse setups and up to 1600 ft lbs now I wanna drive a chevy with that kit Smiley Im right foot heavy though Id blow the damn thing up it would just be too much fun

I think someone should buy my truck shorten the wheelbase with a flatbed, throw rockwells under it and wheel the fuck outta it, its already gotta a beafy borg warner case and a granny low nv4500, the tranny accepts the np241 case also. This thing would be awesome and Ive always thought about it but I need another project like I need a hole in my head... work school parenting and 2 projects already takes up like 30hrs of a 24hr day...lol
