Ford did a good job on the 6.7L though, that is a great engine.

Right after they came out the local dealer was replaceing them for some reason, they had 3 in the shop for engines when I walked through their service bays about a year after they came out, don't know what that was about.

Except the ocasional $3000 turbo failure we have not seen many come through my shop yet but they are only what 7 years old?

When I start seeing them at 25 years old with 300K on the clock and they haven't been cracked open then we'll know if they are any good or not.

I’ve seen a pile of diesels for sale. Seems like the big diesel trend is slowly dying now for the crowd that just had to have a diesel. Weve had them all in our fleets for the past 20 years and they all break down. I’d say the best fleet of truck we ever had was the 99.5 and up 7.3 powerstrokes and the biggest weak link in them was the 7 core transmission cooler in the Autos.

And the horrible fuel mileage... tsk

Seems to be less for sale here than usual last I looked... so can't say I see any type of trend like that here. I want to find an 03-05 rust bucket cummins and put the body from my 04 hemi on it and can't find many.

Sold my 33 ft camper, race car and 28 ft race trailer and bought a class A motor home last year. Didn’t have a need for the big 07 Cummins dully any longer. It only had 56K on the odometer. I only used it for towing my trailers. Also the Michigan winters had taken its toll on my 84 Dodge 1/2 ton pu so it was ready to be put out to pasture. Tried to sell the Cummins but everyone thinks they need a 4X4, mine was a two wheel, so no takers. Ended up trading it in for a new 1500 Hemi. No regrets.

I have a 2006 3500 SRW 4x4 that I bought brand new and I love it. I am pushing 120,000 miles myself. You have one of the few with less miles than mine has. I'm planning to definitely keep mine until 250K and then I'll evaluate as we go. I may just drive it until it drops.

<knock on wood> I've had virtually no issues with it although I had to replace the lift pump about 2-3 weeks ago. Only other issue of note was that I've gone through 2 water pumps so far. I think that's pretty good for having had it nearly 12 years. Everything else has just been maintenance (which I do religiously) or very minor issues.

Yeah, my 02 is 2WD, cause I only use it in summer, to tow and as a pick up . . . some say because of that, the 2WD trucks should be valued $8k LESS than a 4x4 . . .
