Unfortunately, I think it's more about owning any modern diesel, especially as truck makers struggle to adopt constantly changing pollution laws. I think there's a distinct trend of engine issues every time a new pollution standard comes out and the truck makers slap some new piece of relatively untested gear (CCV, EGR, DEF,...) onto reliable engines.
You want to maximum reliability, you need to find a older non-electronic Dodge inline 6 engine. That comes with its own compromise too.
