As a newbie, you'll have to forgive me if I have the wrong forum.
In the past 14 months, I have had 55,000km of the most trouble free driving I have ever experienced! I have a 2011 F350 CC SRW used for everything from towing a 16000lb trailer/skidsteer combo to boucing through bush. This engine/tranny combo is nothing short of amazing.
Just wanted to let the guys suffering from catastrophic engine trauma to hang in there! Considering the level of innovation this engine offers, the reliability rate for the first year are very impressive. My previous truck was a 2005 Dodge 3500 w/cummins. All the dodge guys (myself included) preach about cummins reliability. Well, my Cummins cost me a total of $90,000 in repairs and missed work. Just goes to show you that every manufacturer can suffer from these issues. And dodge has had over 40 years to sort there engines out.
I am a fully converted Blue Oval guy now, even bought my wife a 2012 F150 CC!
