    The truck runs, the driver makes a living. I think the truck is always a crapshoot, no matter what, Cajun. I have a Columbia, '08, DD60 14L, and it's a good working truck. I'm thinking about the same things you mention. I like what Maggard says, and I'll probably look for an inframe (if I can find a good shop) or a crate motor, not much more $.

    so far def trucks have proved to be alot better than the dpf only trucks. still not as great as pre egr, but alot better than the 08-10 trucks . the cost of def fluid doesnt really figure into the cost to operate the truck. 40 bucks a week in mine.
