    I used to have an 02 Long bed 6 speed 2500 cummins.

    On that generation you want to get the manual. The automatics always failed. One the 03+ the autos are just fine.

    I'd still have the truck but I got hit by a drunk driver head on at highway speeds. Truck saved my life. You cant go wrong with those trucks as long as you get the manual trans. Cummins FTW :bowdown:
