I have seen nothing so far with F250s and F350s. Except for a few and i mean 3-4 DEF sending units.

F450 and F550s lose turbos the pickups have no problems that i have seen of to date. There are many guys who use these both as daily drivers and workers that are out of Base warranty-100k+ but they have serviced these trucks religiously. They also report between 18 and as high as 26mpg.

I have driven a few for simple things like complaints of a transmission not shifting properly. Simple update fixes it. These things really HAUL i am a fan of them. If they built a 250 with independent front suspension i would have a green lariat in my driveway.

That is super exciting. They are state of the art and MPG is terrific. Even if I got a lot more than 30k I personally would drive my 7.3 until it gave up or it got real ratty and unreliable before I dropped that much loot on a new truck, but that's just me and I know this isn't the kind of forum for that kind of advice...
Your 7.3 is solid, right?

I know some guys who work as Ford dealer mechanics like ol' Chevy guy and they say the same thing... little if any common issues with these new trucks.

Good luck - I am envious.
