    My truck is totally stock. Only thing aftermarket is a FASS system after I had issues with the lift pump. Going to see if the +50 hp injectors will last longer than the Dodge dealer replacements that were put in a few months before I bought the truck. Injectors only lasting 115k miles is crazy I think. Just trying something to see if it will have a better outcome.

    Part of the problem is using "dealer" injectors, which may not be new.

    I left the diesel business before those specific injectors came out, but previous to that Mopar injectors were remans that were poorly done, as were Cummins rebuilds - all horrible quality.

    I don't know the price for brand new, but if you've used top quality filters (not autoparts store ones, get Fleetguard) they should be good for 200K miles + without blinking.

    Hate to burst your bubble, but I have always used the "auto parts" filters.

    I got over 406,000 on the original injectors. The second set were 311,000.

    I do not run a chip or additives. Totally stock truck.

    Good luck with that, then. Some are good, some are not up to spec. Cummins specifies the micron filtration required, and it's been demonstrated repeatedly that some are nowhere near what they should be. If you get clean fuel, this may not be a problem. If you don't, it'll destroy things fast. I've seen the results first hand.

    And price isn't the determining factor.

    Fleetguard filters aren't expensive, but have always lived up to and better than the spec. And no, I have no interest in them in any way.

    I think I will continue as I have always done.

    883,000 miles on it.

    Hey Bigfoot...I noticed your posting was about a year ago. We....wife & I are also looking into RV hauling and have spoke with Indiana Transport.
    How did it go? Still there? Any insight is appreciated!

    Thx
