I'd rather have a duramax with the Allison trans than a powerstroke or cummins any day. Even though you can do so many things to the dodges. I haven't seen near as much done with the Chevys or fords

But do any of them actually use all that torque? Sadly, most of those trucks wont all more than a four wheeler trailer and a few pieces of lumber.

In a way. That's like saying all these turboed foci on this site are pointless because there not using every bit of power that they have? Don't get me wrong, I love turboed cars. And I'm not trying to start a fight. But it's just the point of modding, to get it how you want it. And the guys around me that have them all pull heavy equipment with them. Or they use them to tow multiple bagged trucks to car shows at the same time.

My cousins old cummins had a banks twin turbo kit and a few other bolt-ons, a tuner and timer. He was dyno'd at 975hp 1800 ft.tq. lifted, and locked. He never pulled any thing except his two bikes. But he didn't have any big stacks on it either. I have a pic of it somewhere.

He ended up trading it for a hendricks edition challenger.

The ultimate truck is a Ford Superduty with a 24valve Cummins, hands down. Many Ford guys do this swap ad its a thing of beauty when done right.
