Charlie I did not notice this post at first,so sorry for the late reply. The engine that developed such a bad reputation was the 5.7, often confused with the 6.2. The 6.2 is a true diesel, not a converted gas engine, and is much tougher than the 5.7. I did a lot of research on these engines,and although they are not great pullers,compared to a 6.5,but they are reliable under continuous use.
