I own a 99 ram with the cummins, tranny rebuilt once at 65k, truck now has 89k. When I was at Cummins Power Systems buying a fuel filter, the man at the counter said that Ford was putting the cummins in their 2005 model pickups. Has anybody heard this???? Looking into purchasing another Ford one day but would like to have the cummins motor
This isn't true. You can get a conversion kit to install a Cummins in a Ford pickup, but Ford isn't offering it as a factory option. If you want the 5.9 Cummins in a Ford you'll have to buy an F650 or F750, and at that point I'd get the Cat diesel.

At this point I think the 5.9 theyre using is a medium duty, not the kind theyre sticking in the Dodge trucks right now, not exactly the kind of motor you would really want for a regular pu I think. Besides, its like this guy says, the cat diesel is the way to go, the only problem is it kind of sucks to buy all the stuff to make the vehicle a 4x4 afterwards.
yes there is only 1 5.9 Cummins diesel. The one they put in the Ford trucks are the same one the put in the dodge trucks. You can get a quiet 305hp F-650 now I thought that was kinda funny sense Ford and Dodge keep figthing for the higher HP diesel and if you buy Ford you can get both. It would make a great comparison. same truck same load different engine.
He used the search and responded to a thread even if it's slightly long in the tooth. I'm giving rep points to him. How times have we seen the same old ?'s asked over and over again.
What is a Veteran?
A "Veteran" - whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve- is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to, and including their life."
That is honor. And there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact.
