EPA 2007 engines are the most unreliable and expensive of all the post-2004 engines. I wouldn't. BTW, it's Cummins, not Cummings.

Didn't notice, the auto correct on my cellphone will do that to me now and then. Do you have any suggestions as to reliable years and make? Thanks

I would stay away from isx completly. Too many horror stories about them eating turbo's, egr valves, egr coolers. Very expensive to work on. Look for non egr detroit. Pre acert cat or even N14 cummins. Dont let dealer tell you they have pre-emmision truck for you. If its newer than 2002. Buyer beware. Cats say acert on top of valve cover if thats what it is. Egr engines all have a metal tube that goes from intake over top engine to turbo side. If you see that RUN. Get a oil sample if possible and have dyno test to check blowby and crank case pressure. Ecm report is also good idea along with rigdig report.

What are the state restrictions if you have a truck pre EGR?

The only state having emission requirements is california plus some ports in other states. If you run cali look at 2010 or newer.

I know four different owner operators that had inframes done between 250,000 and 500,000 miles, or $25,000 in engine repairs a year plus down time. If you don't need to go to Ca then just budget to go to Pittsburgh Power or PDI.
