Getting a new truck 2008

About to take the leap of faith. Not a technician by any means but not even close to being new to diesels. Im aware of that the 6.4's are capable of and aware that when they fail they fail hard. I hit the problems forum and im tired of reading that. I wanna know are more people satisfied and having no issues or are more people having issues and hating there lives. Its hard to find happy people because they dont say anything theres no reason to so it makes every engine seem like they are all failing when really its closer to like 5 percent. Just wanna hear some good if there is honest good stuff to hear.

This is my second 6.4. My first, a 2008, had a radiator issue that was handled under warranty. I had it for 2 years with no other problems. It was a great truck. My 2010 has been flawless. I have 2 friends that both own 2009 models. Both could not be happier. Is this what you want to hear?

Getting a new truck 2008

I bought my 08 job 1 with 112,xxx miles. It now has 127,xxx. It was already deleted when I got it. I checked the oasis report- it's had a new radiator and the updated hoses, I've changed the glow plug harness on driver side bc it was leaking on #1 glow plug, and replaced the front cover bc it was leaking, new belt tensioners, replaced cam sensor bc it was leaking, and that's it. Nothing major at all. I'm running the h&s mini maxx on the hot damn 300 on the hot level.

Getting a new truck 2008

2008 Job 2 over here. Love my truck. Actually buying another car so I don't have to DD the truck so I can keep it around longer! There isn't another truck on the market I would trade it for. Bought it at 58k miles, currently at 87k. First oil change I thought I was having cavitation issues, but my front cover looked like its brand new. Had radiator hoses leak (as they were the single O-ring design). Other than that, no issues at all. It runs flawless.
