My Ford nightmare!!!

62,000 miles my 2003 Ram HO 3500 pulling 23,000 pound trailer oil change and service! Never let me down!

Now I need a new Radiator!!


By the way there is no new Flash for the F450 out yet to help its horrific MPG they hooked my truck up today and no new flash out yet

Your '08 has EPA fingerprints all over it, your '03 doesn't. All new diesels are screwed with the DPF and regen killing mpg's.

So I should stick with my 6.0 and not trade for a new 6.4?

Thanks Scuff, Dealer here and I are back and forth with each other. I know what I want is a long shot so it more than likely wont happen.

Looking at an 08 F250 or F350SW crew cab 4x4 lariat 6.4, trying to get them at 31K OTD. I know its a stretch but we will see.

My 6.4 stroke has less problems (none) then my brothers 6.7 CTD (more time in the shop then on the road). And if I have as many problems as he does then I will file a lawsuit against Ford just as he has against Chrysler. Not that he will ever win.
