I am thinking about buying a 2001 F-350 dually 5.4 liter with 70,000 miles. I am wondering what ya"ll think of the engine?

Gassers are good in 1/2-tons and smaller, IMO. Won't own anything 3/4-ton or bigger without the diesel.

I got a similar truck when my 03 6.0 was in the shop as a loaner. I was less than impressed, would barely get out of its own way power wise. I got 7-10 Mpg pulling my 18ft car trailer around with fence post and stuff.

I am wondering how much do you think it will take to put A Fummins in it?

i just drove our work last weekend, 2001 4x4 single rear wheel and it was joke... it has 126k on it but i think my wifes chevy 1500 2wd is a better work truck.

we also have a 1997 chevy with a 454 and a set of duals...it too is useless...big trucks need diesel power.

The toes you step on today, may be connected to the aZZ you kiss tomorrow.



2007 6.0L 4x4 its got a bullet proof egr cooler,two sets of D-plugs, blue spring return valve, air raid filter,with the zood, B&W hide-a-hitch.
