thinking of buying 6.7

I tried this in the general forum but, didn't get much feedback. Maybe putting here will get the result i'm looking for.

I'm considering buying another Powerstorke. The first one didn't work out well, a 2007 F350 6.0.

Anyway, trying to get some feedback on the new trucks. If i buy one it will be a 2012 F350 dually maybe SRW, FX4, Lariat. I live on a gravel road so the first question i have is how well the interiors hold up(i hate rattles). The next question is how well has the new 6.7 powerstorke engine been performing.

anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!!

The interiors of the new trucks are supposed to be real nice from what I've heard. The new engines honestly haven't been out long enough to tell how reliable they really are.

I have been a GM guy all my life but, for some reason i am drawn to the new Ford's. They way they are discounting them right now it's hard to pass up (up to $12k off sticker). I can get Ford's on the AZ plan but, with the discounts going on it right now they are cheaper than the AZ plan by about $4k or atleast according to one dealer i talked to.

2012 F350 here. 7500 miles. No rattles. Pennsylvania roads..... truck is a beast. Consumer reports rated them the most reliable diesel when they tested them. I love the interior. The size and finish really put the FORD on my want list over Ram and GM.

THIS THING ROCKS!

hopefully, i am going to test drive them today. I really not sure why i am looking at new truck cause my current truck get 22mpg on the hwy unloaded, 17 mpg in town, 10 mpg towing all hand calculated and has low miles on it. I just like the difference in interior size. The fords are a lot bigger than my GMC.

One has to wonder how they gave a truck with a two year old drive train the most reliable nod. I like my truck, but what sort of things are they taking into account to determine this?

BTW, what part of Pa are you driving in? I'm in SE Pa, near Philly.

I love my truck and have almost 28K on it right now. I do alot of driving on my ranch in SW Texas (gravel/rocks) and I have 1 rattle/squeek coming from the dash area but only over the really rough stuff on the road it's fine - other than that the interior has held up great no other rattles or squeeks to speak of. Love my truck!
