How many unmodded trucks with serious issues?

I am NOT questioning the need of many to mod their trucks. As a former owner of two heavily modified Lightnings, I will simply say "I get it."

I am curious of how many folks here have had serious issues with bone stock trucks: Motor, turbo, transmission, etc.

13k daily driver no major issues. Nox sensor at 1300 miles. Just has a loose plug passenger side of the block leaking coolant.Easy fix. Love the truck. The stock tires kind of blow since they are peeling after some towing for a couple of jobs. 14-15k lbs.

The company I work for bought an initial 6 new trucks.... All F550 2wd... All have had atleast one engine, some have had multiple engines.. all have had countless turbos, transmission issues, CAC lines blowing, injection pump failures. We purchased more of them and still having the same issues, although the complete engine failures seem to have slowed.. Now its mainly turbos, fuel leaks, transmission issues, CAC lines, and oil leaks...

20k and not a single problem. The only time my truck gets driven is to either plow snow or haul my lawn trailer. Love this truck!!

we do not tow beyond rated capacity. Trucks are rated for 19,500 lbs. Trucks average 17-18K lbs. The F550 is also detuned from the rated 400/800 to 300/600. All maintnenance is performed by Ford dealerships. Trucks just have not been reliable when put to work on a daily basis.... Hoping things get better, I hear rumors on occasion that some new V-10 gassers are in the future.

The company you work for either has a serious problem with how the trucks are utilized or a very poor maintenance schedule. After our recent discussion on turbo failures, I contacted a friend that owns a large truck service company here in SoCal. His company has service contracts with numerous large companies and he estimates that he has over 100 C&C 6.7 equipped Fords under contract. To date he has not seen 1 total engine failure and only 2 turbo failures, which were referred to a local dealer for replacement under warranty. He also said that with such a dismal failure rate for your company, that Ford would refuse to sell any more trucks to your company as a single engine replacement will wipe out the total Ford profit on 3 trucks.
