Like what? Only thing that's an issue is the radiator and the oil cooler. Other than that, all the Big 3 suffer from the same problems in the emissions category... It robs power, is problematic, and guzzles fuel.

well if you like the style, but don't really need to haul or tow, you might consider a gas model...

The 6.4 engine is a great engine and the body style of the 08-10 models is awesome. They changed up the body style for the 11 and newer trucks and it doesn't have that truck look anymore to allot of people.

Engine wise, it has allot of power but it drinks fuel like we do water. It's also very sensitive to driving styles. This is a truck that performs great on the hwy at speed, and not so well as a grocery getter. Keep up with the maintenance, drain the water separator regularly and the truck will last a long time. Slack off on any of that and it could cost you.

Injekter, PM sent.

Not to familiar with the 7.3 myself, but from what owners have mentioned in the past, it's a very reliable motor and allot easier to work on compared to the newer engines.
