i can tell you for sure that the 08 dodges have the same dpf problems and dont get any better mpg maybe 1 or 2 maybe.so if you get a dodge the same year you will have the same issues except you will be in a dodge istead of a beast like a ford.

all the new trucks are doin worse on mileage because of the DPF...plus your low offer is just because of the truck market right now, its way down your not gonna get much on a trade in, id say if you were up for it do the dpf delete and get a good tune on it, i know guys with the 6.4 have been sayin 5-6 mpg gains with it outta there?

good luck

Agree but disagree. Yes the spartan tuner DPF delete will give it better mileage but what if the buyer purchases the truck and keeps it stock so owner is garrantied warranty?
