Whatever I suppose. Chrysler has been changing hands for a while. Idk better or worse, nor do I care about things I have no control over.
But back to the OP, who ghosted the thread...

The OP here. Steady down, read only the words on the page, don't plug in your own thoughts and read between the lines. I am looking for a long term relationship with a truck. I come from a mining and oilfield background so 5 years and 100k are not big intervals. It will be kept bone stock, but in case of a major failure, rod through the side, oil pump failure, whatever; what junkyard/rebuilt engines are bolt ins? I include all the electronics in the transplant.

Still, what is a good Ram truck website??? Equal to the Ford Truck forums?


5 years from now there will be junkyard 2019 and 2020 engines.
You’re missing the point. If you have to ask, it’s too complicated, electronically. Different components , diff IP, diff ECM TCMBCM etc.
Maybe possible but you’re not going to get answers as no one is swapping out the year old engines with junkyard motors.

Don't worry... Stellantis will make it better!


Nothing will make the CP4-2 better! I would bet that the Denso pump goes on the RAM before Ford does. Chris

Cummins has a much longer relationship with Bosch than Ford does.

I don't think that is entirely true. What many people do not know is that Bosch also makes fuel systems for gasoline engines as well as many other parts such as sensors, spark plugs, and so one. If I am not mistaken, there were many Bosch made parts on 80 and 90 model Fords. In fact, I believe Bosch made the injectors in my old Ford 4.9L(300) inline 6.

I’m sure there’s the odd issue just like the cp4 rams.
I don’t troll Powerstroke forums, so don’t know....

Ford assumed GM's actions of just silently fixing them???? And quit blaming the users????

Or not enough miles on the newer ones:

"While supplying high-pressure fuel is an injection pump's job, the CP4 does so with a high probability of failing (typically around the 100,000-mile mark) and leaving owners with a need to overhaul their truck's entire fuel system, at a cost that can be anywhere between $8,000 and $10,000."

Bosch refuses to pay Edgebrock to use their cam follower patent.
