6.4 good motor??

Does the 6.4 have any production problems? also will it withstand upgrades on stock internals? i know the 6.0 had bad head problems and was wondering if they fixed all of this in the 6.4?

6.4 internals can withstand the most upgrades its an extremely powerful engine. You will here some horror stories but many other like me will tell you with proper maintenance its by far the best diesel truck they have owned. If your looking at modding a diesel truck the 6.4 is by far your best choice

And the can of worms has been open.

Buy an 09-10 if u plan on keeping her stock. By then most kinks were out.

Great motor. Can't go wrong. Good luck!

Doesn't matter what year, 08, 09 or 10. They are pretty much the same thing now after all the TSB's.

The 6.4L is one of, if not, the toughest, most mod friendly platforms there is.
