I'm in the same boat as you. I have 50K on my 06 and was already at the dealer looking at trading it in. Mine has never been to the shop for anything. I have decided at this point to keep my 6.0 as I don't forsee any problems in the future. I hae bought the ScangaugeII and all the results are good on mine. As nice as the 2011 was that I looked at, MSRP of 61700, I personally think getting rid of my 6.0 now would be foolish on my part. I could of walked out the door with a fully loaded 2011 for 30300 with my truck on trade.

If you haven't got a Scangauge you should and see what your numbers are.

I think you posted in the wrong spot to.

I have a 06, We have the new ones in the shop...I dont know 50 grand for almost a stripper when I bought my lariat for 30 out the door new.

Personally me, they are sick on the inside and look pretty good, but there is ALOT of monitoring systems on the truck...Which is fine and dandy, but for a newer truck I would wait and see what happens first with the new engine and truck design.

I can say Im glad I got a 6.0 instead of a 6.4 when they were the hot thing to have. Too many cab offs to count with the 6.4's

I love the 6.0 but get that stc fitting off the back of that pump. at 45k the trucks barely broken in but they still have some weak spots (obviously)

I'd let the 6.7 go for a few years and see what these things do with some miles on them. we already know what the 6.0 is capable of

I have had both. I love my 6.7, however if I had the year you have I would spend the $ bulletproofing it and wait to see what the common problems will be on the 6.7. Its much cheeper to go that route than to buy a new truck. Good luck!

Spend the 5k bulletproofing your truck and drive it for 400,000 miles. 5k is alot less than you will loose buying a new or newer truck.
