I have an 09 Sierra 4x4 CC with a duramax and debating about changing to a 00-02 7.3 f250. This is my 3rd duramax and I just don't pull my 5th wheel enough to justify this new of truck. Will I be happy with a 7.3 with mild mods( tuner/exhaust) or should I just keep mine? I haven't even driven a Ford yet but heard to not get the 6.0, always loved the looks of the 250. My fifth wheel is 38 ft long and about 12k. I know I'm asking a question from the competition, but just wanted some input from 7.3 owners. Thanks.
6.0 is a dang good engine if you take care of it and imo the interior is better then the newer dmax and the new interior on the 6.7 and new dmax arent even comparible. chevy interior is sub par and the exterior to me is not good looking either. if you get head studs put in the 6.0 motor, you cant break this things and it will hang with or even maybe out perform that dmax all day.
dont be scared of a 6.0 cause of what you heard, do some research in the 6.0 section and you will learn there not as bad as people say.
