Scorpion IN, Duramax OUT!

I recently traded my 2010 GMC Duramax for my 2011 F250 Diesel and am happy to say that it was a great decision.
Thought I'd share my excitment.
I'm a rookie on this site but not a rookie to diesel forums.
I had a lot of problems with my DMax so I'm looking forward to my Super Duty.
3000 miles on it and already way better fuel mileage, so much nicer to drive, and my neighbours appreciate how quiet it is compared to my GM which I honeslty never thought was loud at all.
This new Ford diesel is just so amazingly quiet.

Bigger tires on the way, and hoping someone builds an aftermarket airdam for it.

Otherwise 12 years and 9 GM trucks later, glad to be back to Ford!

Glad to hear it. Out of curiosity, what made you come back after so many GM products?

You may already know this or came across it already in the other thread,You want to change the Dam you have for a 2 WD dam,they are a lot shorter and look great!

Just taking it off looks like Crap! IMHO But the 2 WD Dam Looks Great!

i have driven both stock off the lot and from a 30 mph roll "top of second" that 6.7 walks that durapad every time.the durapad does start catching back up but only because the scorpion shuts off at 94 and it gets there pretty dam quick.

the sole reason that durapad can run any where near the 6.7 is because the durapad is 1000 lbs less.that is alot of weight to take off thats the only way chevy can stay in the game.

look at stock boost levels and you will see what i'm talking about.well till next time going to close on one of my new houses.

The 2011 Duramax may do that, but when my 2010 Duramax started vibrating like a 1976 bulldozer at idle and my dealer told me it was normal, I realized they knew nothing about what they sell.
When the front bumber rusted after 6 months I was bummed. When the rear rusted out after 8 months I was pissed.
When my truck which I use for work spent 11 working days in the dealership in February which only had like 20 working days, I realized that my issues were not gonna stop or get settled at a dealership that sells Duramax's but didn't know what I was talking about when I told them the LB7 didn't even vibrate as much as my LMM! The service manager who claimed to know everything about my truck did not know what LB7 or LMM meaned.

GM could make the greatest vehicle in the world, without good supporting dealerships and service what's the point. I will never go back.
My Powerstroke is awesome.
Compared to my Duramax it's effortless to drive.

I couldn't fit 33's under my Duramax without spending a pile of cash lifting and leveling. I have 35's under my F250, stock and it looks sweet.

I could go on.
Best decision I made.

Thank for all the welcome back notes. I feel at home!
