I really hope Ford didnt take a step back with this tranny. The extra gear is nice, but if it makes it any weaker, it would almost be worth it to have the 5R110 (I think thats what came behind the 6.4)

When I bought my 2003 6.0L It was one of the first production builds. The first week of production. I had it less than a month and the tranny failed. The dealer replaced the tranny. They were instructed by Ford to not even Open it up. Just send the whole thing back to the factory. Well it took about a week for Ford to ship out a new tranny and the dealer to get it switched out. I drove that truck for 80+ thousand miles and never had another thought about the tranny.

Hearing about one tranny failing doesn't scare me away from Ford. If I start hearing about LOTS of tranny's failing, I get nervous.

My tranny went out in 2006 Tundra 5.7 (First year for 5.7 and 6-speed). It did scare me and Toyota took a couple weeks to get the whole tranny replaced. But, I missed owning a diesel, and being upset about the tranny and longing for diesel power again, I traded the Tundra in on a Dodge Cummins and the cummins never let me down.

This post is nearly incoherent. The title is not related to the body, the whole thing is like massive run-on conversation between two dudes on a street corner. Did they teach English at all in Kalifornia? Its obviously NOT an issue with a 6.7L Powerstroke. If the steering wheel falls off...is that a 6.7 Issue too?

There isn't even a point. One truck? And you hope Ford gets out of their slump? Look around! Do you see any shortage of Powerstrokes on the road?

This is the first time I've heard of a dealer replacing an entire truck for a recurring transmission issue. Has Ford no replacement transmissions? And a totally new truck at 20K?

Maybe I'm just grumpy cause I ran my finger through the wire wheel polishing some bolts. Kinda burns beyond the bleeding and missing skin. Sorry.
