The 6.5 is a decent motor as far as reliability (better than a gas, but it's no cummins), but it is a dog in the power department. Only thing you have to wrory about with the cummins is the truck falling apart around the motor. I would wait to find a 12 valve cummins in your price range. Oh and stay away from the dodge automatic tranny.
