There is a kid running a 24 valve Cummins around on Dixie that just down shifts in traffic to specifically pour smoke out his retarded 10in stack.. and as soon as he sees another truck. He slows down and blurbs the throttle next to you to get you to race...

I have a good freind with a 08 cummins and it is the biggest piece of shit I have ever seen. It has been in the dealer more times then any car I know of in my 30+ years of working on cars.
Just a couple problems of the top of ny head
The transmission has been gone through twice
One new transfercase
Rebuilt frontend including steeering box twice, still eats front tires
The inside of the hood is rotted out, the rockers are rusting, the cab corners are rusting.

This is a 5yr old truck with way less then 100,000 miles on it, all repairs are at the dealer under warrentee.

Once in awhile my freind will admit what a piece of shit it is (when he is way drunk)
Most of the time he will tell you how awsume dodge is and he just bought his wife a 09 with a hemi. I Cant wait untill it starts falling apart.

The motor is the only thing they brag about because everything else is made by mopar, and is junk.
Why does there have to be a jean-e-us like you in every truck related thread? Oh you know a guy who has a vehicle that's got a lot of problems? That whole brand must be junk. Idiot. Great, I know people with Ford and GM trucks who've had more problems out of 1 vehicle than both my Dodges combined with my Jeeps. Does that mean Fords and GMs are junk? Nope. Vehicles have problems, and unfortunately some vehicles (of any brand) have lots of them. Your cousin's friend's neighbor's dog's veterinarian's ex-wife's boyfriend's transfer case leaked? Then I guess Mopar sucks!!! Better hurry up and scrap that Jeep in your avatar, it's a Mopar piece of shit.

I'm not even sticking up for Mopar specifically(hell, my new truck is a Chevy), I'm putting down moronic, generalizing, ignorant people.

Pretty sure they would be UPSHIFTING to blow smoke. You know, since you guys want to sound all smart and such.

Either way, it has nothing to do with Cummins vs Duramax, it's just guys wanting to be superior to someone else. Just the same as you may feel better for not talking shit, they feel better by talking shit. I'm sure there were neanderthals that would brag about their rock hammer having seven strands of leather instead of six. Cat vs Doo, Harley vs Honda, KTM vs Yamaha, BMW vs Benz, Snap-On vs Mac, Red Wing vs Rocky, Jeep vs Toy, Smith and Wesson vs Ruger, Bose vs Denon, Dirt vs Asphalt, Kawasaki vs Sea-Doo, Stand up vs Sea-Couch, Fat vs Skinny, Blond vs Brunette, etc. Everyone does it and wants to justify their choices, and many want to gloat about it.

Just as above there are people dogging on Mopars being pieces of shit, (which they aren't) Others are going to do the same thing the other way.

What everyone is describing is a "diesel douche" it's a common epidemic.

Bet he got his feathers all ruffled after this conversation and went and flipped his tow mirrors up. All brands have diesel douches, but I see more cummins owners acting like this than any other brand.

100% agree. WAY more Cummins guys than all the rest put together. They also always are the first ones to brag their shit up and bash on everything else.

Im just giving one example of every mopar owning retard I know. I work on cars for a living every day, i realize they all have problems.
Mopar countinues to build junk that wears out way faster then it should, across the board.
I love my tj but almost every electrical part on it has been replaced, typical mopar shit I fix every fucking day. Start swinging wrenches for a living and after 30 years you will also be a egenious. Douchbag.
