You need just one out of warranty expense on a diesel (if that) and you will never make your money back in savings no matter what you do.Due to the cost of the special oil needed for the 6.4L and the that you can go almost double the number of miles between maintenance on the Cummins. The difference in total maintenance cost is not that different over the course of 100k miles if you do it yourself which is really easy to do. Taking it to the dealer will cost you especially if they change the fuel filters.
Today's diesels are always the more expensive option. You buy them because you need the power, or because you want it, not because it's ever going to save you money.
