New F350

I'm about ready to bit the bullet and trade my F250 PS for a new F350 PS CC Dully!! I have read everything I can find ref. the new 6.7 and there is not much out there as yet. I hope I'm not making a big mistake. I have driven the new Dodge cummins, Chev. Dmax, and the Ford, I like the ride and looks of the Ford best but am still nerves about the new engine. After all, I have dealt with the 6.0 for the past 5 years and want to rid myself of it now that the warranty is over. I guess I'm looking for a warm fuzzy from current owners of the new 6.7!! Am I making a big mistake in buying the new Ford???

I'm also looking to upgrade to the 2011 F350 dually, CC with the new engine / transmission.

Read lots of negative from the Rumble in the Rockies. I've pulled over that route with my 6.0 and it was slow up and scary down. I'm more interested on hearing from guys towing over 20k and the new Ford exhaust brake.

Thanks in advance.

Well MP-John, looks like no one is having problems or they want us to jump in with them?

I have a 2011 F-350 CC 4x4 Dually and love it. It rides better than my 06 F-250 and gets better fuel mileage. I was worried about the new motor as well but so far it has been fantastic!

IMO, unless you NEED a new truck, I'd wait for the 2012 MY. Given how competitive this segment is, I'm sure that Ford will have some nice changes. After that MY 2014 will be a big change with engine re-certifications. Always something...
