Might be getting a new Powerstroke...
So it's about time to get a new truck.. And normally we've been totally happy with the Cummins and would've never thought we'd get anything else, except maybe a Duramax. Well now me and my dad have driven all 3 and just liked the powerstroke the best. Dodge basically looks better, it's still the same truck. Duramax hardly felt like a diesel with all the power up top and crazy defueling for shifting (have yet to drive the loaded model). But now the powerstroke had it's power instantly and down low. Lot's of compartments on the interior and extremely roomy, very well thought out interior!
Anyway, we're still working on prices for all 3 for a similar truck, and then seeing what we'll decide, but we're pretty sure gonna go with the Ford. Now for a few questions..
How well has this motor been proven?
Would you trust to void warranty at like 30-50K miles to do all the deletes?
How good is Ford's warranty usually?
What's the maintenance like on this truck, possibly vs. a Cummins?
Any recommend options to get on the truck right away?
Is there anything you would recommend putting on the truck besides gooseneck hitch and auxiliary fuel tank for lots of really heavy towing?
Our normal loads are 25-35K pounds, and our 2 6.7 Cummins have done us pretty good until now. We also put an average of 10K miles a month on the truck. Any thoughts/inputs are appreciated.. I just know Cummins pretty good already so this truck would be totally knew to me, my dad, and our driver.
