Now my wife is getting mad that I am always taking her car to tow my trailer. So I need to get the Tundra out of the garage and get a Super Duty in it. Just dont want to regret my purchase in a year.
Get the 2011 Powerstroke! It'll be a good motor, it has to be. If its not then Fords just gonna be the class clown in the diesel market, they won't ever be taken seriously again. This is it, sink or swim, it HAS to work or they pack up and leave diesel world IMO. Trust Ford with it. If there's any problems you will be taken care of. I've read about a couple minor issues with the 6.7 and the extent Ford is going through to find and fix the problem is just unbelievable. Ford even paid for one guys hotel for him and his horses! They got your back this time, blame falls on them not International.
Have you taken of of these things for a ride yet?? They are so awesome, this is a home run truck IMO! If you havn't gone for a ride yet, then get down to the dealer when you can and go for a ride! You will be converted!!
Glad to see you wanting to make the switch! Always good to see! Ford has really been making a honest effort to be a better company, to make a quality product. And it shows in their vehicles! Great job Ford!!!
