3 06 work trucks all turds!!!

My buddy works for a pipline company that uses ford dually flat beds one single cab, two crew cab all 2wd, one of the crew cabs is a standard the rest are auto. One thing they all have in common is they are weak!!!! He will put it to the floor and it has as much get up and go as a pinto!!

I dont get it because every 6.0 I've drove including mine are pretty bad to the bone. Any Idea's on why they are so much different? they all have under 50,000 miles.

My dad had a '04 f-250 that is all stock. It is really peppy. I test drove a '05 f-350 cab/chassis and it would not get out of it's own way. It only had 26,000 miles on it. May be a different tune or something between the years?

Being pipeline trucks, they are most likely 450 or 550s. The 4.88 gears in those trucks make them feel like slugs. Also if you weighed them, I bet you would find that they are grossing over 15,000 lbs with all the junk that they carry! Double the weight of any pickup and it's going to feel slow.

I was thinking the same thing. I also think the 450s and 550s are turned down a little more for longevity sake.

I think they are 450's now that you mention it. I wouldnt think theres that much extra wieght but I guess a bunch of little things add up.

I will let him know about the gearing, his boss said that they were all geting programers.

The turbo lag on 6 speeds are the worst. My brothers truck you can let the clutch out in 1st and out the pedal to the floor and it wont go anywere. Its a pedal game with those trucks.

i don't get how 4:88's would make a vehicle feel less responsive?..if anything it should make it feel like it has more acceleration and theoretically it would.

As for the tuning..unlike the 6.4 i don't think ford turned down the 6.0 on the cab chassis trucks.

These are pipe line trucks with 50000miles on them...these things are probably beat to hell and back. 50000 would probably be more like 150000 in the real world.
