i dont think theres really much break in too these trucks, just vary your speeds and rpms constantly to work in everything to different temperatures and conditions.

...and do that for at least 500 miles before any long steady trips.

That's B.S for these trucks. These heavy-duty drivetrains are designed and engineered to work from day one. What exactly do you think you are "breaking in"? Some of my trucks that have been worked the hardest from day one, have lasted the longest. I am a believer that especially with today's engineering tolerances, a machine's purpose is to do what it's engineered to do. So as long as you are running the machine within it's design tolerances, (not hooking a 100k lb 50ft semi trailer to a F250) there is no strain on machine components.

B.S.?

Really?

...hmmm....it's not about the drivetrain, it's about the engine.

So all those diesel engineers and mechanics are wrong that there is a break in period for the engine... who'd thunk it?

I'll go with the expert opinion for the engine break in period and then I'll make the engine work.

You may not agree, but it's low quality B.S. to say that what the manufacturer recommendation are is B.S.

You seem pretty adamant about this "break-in" thing! I'm confused though, are you saying there is such a thing as high quality B.S.?? Haha, enjoy your 6.7 man, and I'll do the same.

The high quality stuff is really hard to find...

Adamant...not sure if that's what it is...just been told by those that would know, you have to give the engine a break in period.

In a way iwould have to agree with Nthorseman just in the fact that rings dont even seat in these motor till 100K (which is why regen is such a bad thing extreme temps+ new motor= not a long life expectancy) however you can go about your daily life without worry. Dont go out and go for broke in the thing but taking a trip and towning within what it was defined for isnt gonna hurt anything. Hope this helps
