Im not new into diesel, I have been driving diesels for ten years just much bigger.I have been around powerstrokes all my life. I just know nothing of this motor.
Just do some searching here on the general and problems boards. ALOT of info here.
I bought an 08 with (9/07 build date) with 77K on it for $28k. (Was actually going to buy an 09 Cummins but the dealer had it labeled an auto when it was a standard
) The 6.4L has by far the best interior and creature comforts I have seen.
As far as the engine, I believe as long as you do the necessary deletes (EGR,DPF/CAT), or preventive maintenance as I call it, and keep up religiously with scheduled maintenance you will be one happy 6.4 owner. Just remember alot of people on these forums come here because of problems and are looking for solutions and ideas.
