I was looking for more info than that, maybe like yea i have 35K miles and no problems or I have 5K miles and already have had issues, etc. I know its early but hoping for the best on these 11's. Also swa on another thread where someone said they are sluggish was aso wishin that was true as well. but again theyre new and im sure theyre not all the same, I've had ford diesels since 85 or 84 whenever they came out, dont want to change now. I still have a 96,04 and 05 and soon to have a 01 service truck

Picked mine up last month and I really like it. It has 2700 miles on it now with no issues. It pulls awesome. Have not had anything over 16000lbs behind it yet but it handled that better then the my cummins. And in noway is it sluggish. Raced my buddy in his 07 duramax 2500 4x4 with the PPE set on 90hp and I had him beat to about 65 or 70. After that he pulled from me but not by much. My truck is a F350 4x4 dually.

I have 3000 miles on mine and I have had only problem I had was the hood alarm sensor was loose and needed to be tightened so the alarm would not keep going off. I have pulled a 14k 5er with no problems.

I think you meant scared, if indeed you are scarred, if it is emotional their is a diesel addiction therapy group...:hehe:

I have close to 20,000 on mine, pulled 8000 lb rv about 20% of that, just hooked up to a fifth wheel, will weigh it soon, 14,000 maybe... no issues, runs great.. just maintainance so far.

Has a buddy with a 5.9 cummins, he can't believe the difference between the two, the 6.7 outpulls, out performs his dodge. He is thinking of getting a 6.7 dodge!!??? Go figure!!

2750 miles on mine. Drives as good as Momma's 750 BMW and ironically gets better mileage. Very impressed so far. Towed the boat (6k lbs.) over Vail pass this weekend. I really like the trucks intuative trailer manners. Towing the race car tailer (12k lbs.) this weeked so we will see.
