New to Ford after 20yrs with Dodge

I just purchased a new F350 after being a Dodge guy for the past 20yrs. Traded a 2003 Dually for my new 350. Gotta say I am impressed so far! So are there any issues with Ford trucks that I need to look out for? Maintenace needs? I have a Readylift leveling kit on the way so the mod bug has already bitten me!

2012 F350, Lariat, FX4, CCSB, ReadyLift 3.5" SST, 37" Toyo Mt, BMF Novakanes 20x9's, Firestone air bags, Air-Lift 72000, Rigid D2's

15k miles and no worries. I did have a message to check coolant additive. Went to stealership and 21 bucks later, no problems what-so-ever.... It won't be long.... before you forget you ever owned a dodge! lol welcome to the org

94% of all Dodge Cummins trucks from1992 through 2012 are still on the road today..... The other 6% made it home.....

If it still runs when you delete it, you don't need it!

Mine is on order. B here in 3-4 weeks. I have had 4 dodges. Just sold my 07 3500 to get my new 350. Can't part with my 1st gen 12v but she's different than the newer ones.

You'll be delighted to have something other than a 48RE slush box shifting your diesel truck. The power of the 6.7 Ford is equivalent to a moderately tuned 5.9 CTD. You should really enjoy your new ride. Congrats and good luck!

I agree, I just sold my 06 ram 2500....this engine and trans combo are NICE! This is my first ford ever, since 2002 I've driven cummins and I'm liking the powerstroke/torqshift.

48re was exactly why I got rid of mine. And the front end. Spent tons on the trans and frontend. No better. I put 180000 on my 07 but it was constantly something. Like a kid waiting for Christmas while I'm waiting on my truck to come in. I'm welding out of my brothers truck till I get mine. Gotta take off a week fly home, pick up truck, go home take bed off and build new bed. Then b back to pa in 8 days. Gonna b a hard working vacation of sorts.
