    I was looking up some sewer cables on line last night and this was in the ad banner on the side.

    It has a 5.0 V8 Cummins in it. Thought I would share this with you fellers.

    5.0 Cummins... 5.0 Mustang.... Hmmm methinks a goofy ass swap is in order.

    I like the way it looks. The front and rear look like a F150 while the side looks like a dodge ram. I am interested in seeing how they do out in the world. If everything works well and they don't fall apart I would consider buying one.

    they're coming to market the truck GM and Ford won't sell here.....I don't see the problem. Everywhere else in the world there is a 1/2ton diesel for sale except the United States. Why? the American automakers are addicted to the margins made on the 3/4 and 1 ton markets.
    It has a Nissan name, Cummins diesel power, Asin-Warner trans and Dana axles. I don't see a downside here. In fact, I hope they do well so the hand of the american automakers are forced to counter with a offering too.

    Dodge came out with there 1/2 ton diesel. Not sure who makes the motor and what size it was?
    One of the local supply shop owners bought one and clams to be getting 28 mpg it a 4x4.

    Exactly! Ford and GM know that if they offer a good diesel in a 1/2 ton truck (which they already know there is a market for) it will impact the sales of 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, because consumers are forced to buy the heavier trucks now if they want a diesel. I also hope GM and Ford lose a little market share over this and are forced to put forward their own offerings.
