Cab off for majors like heads and turbo??? Or is there really easier access?

In my mind this is a MAJOR advantage and reason to look at an upgrade... If it is still a cab off for heads, then I am not excited... At all.....

Lousy fender design for the Dually with half doughnut sliced fenders like 1956 or something... Urea, resistance to programming, and new engine bugs to be worked out.. Lowered spec for the F-450 to 350 size gear.. I will look in 2011, but: For me, the only real attraction is IF they have designed an "In chassis" cab left on access for something like head gaskets or a Turbo removal and repair.

Anyone know?

My F-450 King Ranch CC, 4x4, DRW, Spartan 210 Tow, is pure love!!!

That was going to be the content matter of my next post.. Because I noticed he said Spartan 210 Tow. So I was wondering how that was going to work if it was "resistant to programming"..

We will see on the programming... I hear from the inside, Ford is just tired of the battle...

What about the Cab off, back to the Post... Actual access for turbo/ or head work or not?

I agree, Ford is prolly tired of the battle.. But what made the 6.0l was the ability to custom tune it.. That's the entire reason I got my 6.0l.. I'm afraid if I couldn't custom tune my truck as easily as I do mine now, I will never get a newer one.. Just my .02

So, anyone looking at the motor to see if the heads can come off without the cab off? Turbo OK? This would be a major advantage to me if we could do major Service without pulling the cab.

With Air Brakes and Air Bag suspension added, with controls and safety gear, on my King Ranch F-450, it is too much work to unhook to pull the cab. Heads and turbo off without pulling the cab is a major advantage to upgrade in 2011... Or not

The reason I ask and it is important: Right now, my 09 F-450, CC DRW LWB King Ranch, 210 Tow Performance package, 500 + HP, is pulling like a FREIGHT TRAIN in total luxury... The last of the Big Gear F-450 AND King Ranch interior... If you can't get the heads off with the cab on, on the 6.7, I am going to dig in here for the long haul with more Custom Work.... Bull Bar, Winch, and so on...

If the heads can come off without the cab on the 6.7, I will stay put and wait for the road upgrades to be done on the 6.7 and order edition II in 2011 as our major tow vehicle at Bushtracker .... maybe....

Well I look at it this way, they made it possible to do the head studs on the 6.4s without pulling the cab.. So obviously they realized that pulling the cab to get to the engines on the 6.0s was a terrible idea.... lol

Yep, I remember reading an article a while back that went into alot of detail about the 6.7L. It stated that heads and turbos can be taken off with out taking the whole cab off, along with many other critical parts. A big plus! Ford has really done their homework! I hope this motor is going to be great, sounds like it is....

Saweeeeeet.. I'll be waiting for some job2 trucks to get used some (if there are issues with job1's) and donate the 6.0l to some needy car lot..
