It Kind of sucks but it's better than

After pulling my camper to Toledo Bend State Park, the return fuel line on my 02 7.3 with 106k miles on it rubbed a hole in it. The truck managed to make it to the local ford dealership where we set up camp and had to wait on the repair to make it home. Do these lines break often?
While there I looked at a few of the the newer trucks. The MSRP of 67K dollars made me not feel quite so bad when i had to write the check for $300 for the repairs. I paid 13.5k for my truck and just don't see how people could spend that kind of dough on an unproven truck. I mean with all the problems I've heard about with the 6.0 and 6.4 diesels, I just don't know if i would trust the 6.7.
Love my 7.3 and kudos to the ford dealearship in Natchitoches, La for getting us back on the road even though the part had to come from Memphis. My truck can break every trip before I'll spend that kind of dough. I plan to run my truck till it absolutely blows up. Ben a great truck so far. Happy thanksgiving to all.

my Dad's 2000 had the same fuel line rupture earlier this year. The dealer he went to told him that they keep that line in stock because it's so common. not an expensive part, but the install is tricky from what they told him. My 2002 has not had an issue with that, but I don't drive in a high vibration environment (Dad travels on gravel ALOT).

Mine broke on top the engine where it looked like a clamp secured it to the motor or something.

Mine rubbed a hole in it too, but only cost around $10 to fix. Separated it at the factory quick connection, cut a piece of fuel line to slip over hole and 4 hose clamps later no more leak.
