Welcome to Diesel Forums Ivan
Enjoy your stay

Feel free to ask all the questions you want. But be for warned. All of the Big 3 trucks (Ford Dodge Chev) have their good points and bad.
Each generation of these trucks had good years and bad years. case in point the early chev diesels were a head ache. but now they have done an awesome job at improving hp, torque fuel millage. They've also backed it up with the 1000 6sp Allison transmission and have improved the accessibility of the injectors, should they need servicing.

I give thumbs up for Chevy.

But here is my opinion of the best years of each make.

06-up Duramax LBZ, LMM, LML. Don't count out the 04.5-05 LLY. If you find a good one they are another good choice. I've got 170k on mine with no problems.

05-up Dodges ( just stay away from Mega Cabs)

08-up Fords
