I have a Dodge/5.9 Cummins myself!
2007,still a baby at 160,000 miles.
And,my 71 prototype has the 8.3 Cummins.
Your 6.7 did an amazing job of moving an SP,when you rescued Bill Pape in the hills of Ga.

I did share my find with a few friends prior to my purchase.. granted, its not a bird but its a power house built pretty nice. 8.9 cummins 6 speed allison 20k towing.. and a forward control. Wee still friends?.
Yep, I can't help but notice it has that vintage look that you kept on telling us you were looking for.

I think i sound like my dad.

Everytime i look at something new,Cat converters,injection fluid,and EGR coolers,$7000 mufflers,i just wonder what we have become!

My dad would say,what do we need all that stuff for?
Ohh well...

Enjoy it Slim,run it hard the first year,make sure the warranty fixes everything!

Congratulations Slim. Wish we would have known you were going to that factory. Us local Bird people are always looking for a reason to party. Enjoy your new ride.

That would have been me!

I think I could cut the frame rails behind the cab on the Pete and bolt them to the frame rails on the 'Bird. Remove the 'Bird drive train and replace the rear with something more substantial. Use the old engine compartment for generator/mini-shop.

I still get the nice sound from a small cam Cummins... any truck shop works on it... got rid of 40' of wiring.... AND the low voltage issue...

Still got a million gauges.... I get to shift gears......

WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE???!!!

Haven't figured out the drive shaft yet ......

Or the TIME.....

Or the MONEY!!!!
