Are you happy?
I'm now in the market for a new truck and wanted your opinions, My 6.0 is becoming a repair bill that I just can't keep up with, and I've come to the conclusion it's time to trade in before the ship goes down. I'm just going to be outright honest and say I'm not positive it will be a blue oval again, Im looking at the Ford and the Ram. Id be using the truck as a daily driver, towing a skid steer, and snow plowing (as a snow plow business) and on the side towing and hauling jobs. I'm 20 years old and really just need the diesel for its power pushing snow and hauling equipment, and I was going to go Lariat again for the fact I sit in it everyday of the week. I don't plan on doing any tunes, deleting any EGRs or parts etc.. the only thing I'd change is an exhaust and throw in my strobe lights. I don't want to get ripped apart on the forum I'm just trying to give you guys my situation, I've seen a lot of the horror stories on here of people with 6.7's and problems are still occuring, This truck is going to be my work lively hood and even if she is under warranty, I can't be telling commercial business's and 30 residents "sorry I'm in the shop again" and at the price tag of these trucks, I morally and personally don't want to be sitting in the shop. But enough of me ranting about my psycho personal life, I just want to know, are you guys happy with your 6.7? Is there more to this new motor and truck then the horrors of the 6.0 and some of the 6.7 stories I come across? Or do I bite the bullet and try Cummins?
again this isn't to offend anyone, Im on my own out here and dont really have anyone family or friend wise to turn to for advice on these trucks or situations, what are your thoughts?
Thank you in advance - Jay
