EVERYONE MUST READ THIS!!!

OK, I understand most of the members here are likely die hard Ford fans just as I have been for years.[B] I'd like to make it known that i am not trying to offend any of you or any of the individuals that may work for Ford Motor Co.[/B] I have owned many Ford trucks and cars over the years as well as other makes and models; these vehicles are used primarily for my business and i depend on them to feed my family and my legal AMERICAN employees families. I have slowly but surely been weeding out all of my Fords over the years due to reliability issues and poor customer support. I have one 2006 Ford F350 remaining; it is a dually and has the 6.0 turd in it. This vehicle has 98,000 miles on it and the 5 year powertrain warranty expired 2 months ago. Well, since i've owned the vehicle it has been at the dealership multiple times for repairs (most were covered by the warranty but not all). WHY HAS IT HAD SO MANY ISSUES. The straw that broke the camels back was when a bolt came loose from the carrier bearing bracket in the rear end causing enough damage to require replacement of the entire rear end ($6,000.00). I have maintained this truck to the fullest following every service guidline set forth by Ford. The differential fluid is not even due to be changed yet!! What a piece of sh$t the thing is. Why are bolts coming loose inside the rear diff?? I spoke with Ford directly and despite my loyalty to Ford and the fact the this did not come from neglect or abuse they refused to assist in the repairs. NEVER AGAIN WILL I OWN A FORD OF ANY KIND AND I HOPE I CAN PURSUDE ANY POTENTIAL BUYERS TO STEER CLEAR OF THESE POLISHED TURDS. If these trucks can't provide service throughout the warranty period let alone after it has expired then it's not a REAL heavy duty truck. JUST A POLISHED TURD. Despite what you read on this forum i can testify that the current Ford truck can't stack up to the compitition.

Don't let the door hit ya on the way out.. as they say.

BTW, the carrier bearing is not in the rear diff. it's sorta towards the middle of the drive shaft. I guess your issue was a wobbly drive shaft caused by the loose carrier bearing or bracket that took out the rear diff. I'll agree that that shouldn't have happened.

Again, i'm not trying to offend anyone personaly. I just want others to know about my experiences. My Fords were not purchased for looks, style,cool factor, etc. They were purchased to provide service and they have not done the job.

Talk is cheap my friend. Isn't that what these sites are for! To inform the public about the product. I'm sorry that you own one as i have owned many and that is how I feel.

Every model has it's share of problems and i realize Ford is not obligated to do anything. Not even morally.

Sounds more like a one of issue with your truck and not an issue with your model/year. I'm not seeing a lot of carrier bearing coming loose posts.

Did it happen all of a sudden like or did you start getting a vibration from the rear? I know on a ranger I had, even changing the angle of the drive shaft in a supercab model because of a lift, that you could feel the carrier bearing not doing it's job to stabilize the drive shaft. I'd imaging a loose or disconnected carrier bearing would so all sorts of baning.

you don't have a lift on this truck, do you?

Everything I've owned has been Ford, and they've all done me well. Granted, with anything man-made, nothing has been perfect. They've all needed repairs from time to time (BTW, every Ford bought has been well out of warrenty, so repairs come out of my pocket. Do as much as I can on my own tho). Up to 315,xxx miles on my good ol' 7.3L Super Duty... aiming for 500,000 and beyond.

Not to imply anything, but an educated owner helps make these vehicles go longer too. I made it a point to learn my vehicles and how they work. Got a pretty good understanding of how they all operate so I'll know when something is abnormal and needs to be looked at.

No lift it is all stock. I was making a left hand turn and all of a sudden the drive shaft started spinning inside the rear end and the gers were grinding.
