getting a new 6.7

Ok so i have a bunch of stuff that needs fixing on my 2000 7.3. Sick of working on things (not engine related), so i went and found a 6.7 that i want. They are in the process of doing a dealer trade for me to get it. I have been reading about some of the issues with them. I thought they were doing fairly well, but i see a bunch of them with new engines now? What gives. I hope i am not making a huge mistake as i really like the new ones. The one i found is a job #2 so hopefully it has the oil pan upgrade. I just need to hear more from guys that are happy with them, both in reliability and in mpg. This will be my first new diesel. I want to just leave it stock and reliable. They have enough power for everything i do. So should i still do it?

Just got mine. Consumer Reports rates the SD diesel higher than GM or Dodge and a good rating. So, that's pretty impartial.
This site, like the Ram and GM sites, has people with issues and people that are happy. People search for answers...and this site offers them. So, you'll see the problems portrayed.
I have a whopping 55 miles on mine. But, I expect good things.

Man i hope so. My brother ordered a job #1 2012 last year and he has only had an issue with the NOx sensor that has now been recalled. I am really excited to get it, i just hope it stays reliable.

I love my truck, and don't regret the purchase. I've had a few issues with it, one being the turbo.. other than that, a reflash has been the fix for everything else. mileage will depend on how its driven, power is great right out of the gate. mine has been tuned before and it is a serious powerhouse when tuned. I have a 2011, and have 16200 miles on it. been a great vehicle.

Dan:

I've had mine since last August....almost 12,000 miles on it and absolutely love it. I'm also in Minnesota. No problems what so ever with my truck. This truck has been the easiest starting diesel I've owned...not that we had a bad winter. As far as tuning goes...that's really a personal issue...guess I'd recommend driving it a while in stock form before you decide .

BTW, now that we have summer diesel..mpg's are going up for me. All winter I ran Cenex WinterMaster and averaged 14.5-15 mpg...but that's running in town ( Willmar )...now it's 16+ in town on RoadMaster. Got 21.5 running from here to Ogilve and back...on WinterMaster.....so I'm more than pleased with fuel economy.

Good Luck....No worries on the new PSD!

Wayne

Hey Wayne. Nice to have another MN member on here. I haven't been on in a while so i suppose there are a few more northern members that i am not aware of. I hear they are easy starting engines, even though like you said this last winter was not a good one. Hopefully everything works out to get this thing.

I have a Job 1 truck, I bought it in December of 2010. I haven't had one single issue with it, except for the a$$ clown who rear ended me while he was texting and driving last summer. I drove it for about 10,000 miles before I tuned/deleted it, and honestly, I loved it stock just as much as I love it tuned!

I sold my 2002 F350 7.3 to buy a 2011 Lariat 6.7 Job 2 in November 2010. I have 44k miles on it without any problems. I live near a ski area in Colorado, and tow a 4 horse trailer at high altitudes. These are great trucks. No tune on mine, strictly stock.

Just picked mine up last week, built 11-15-2011 and still has the composit oil pan. Is there really a steel one now?
