7.3 in a 2008 S.D ??

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you were gonna trade in your old truck for a brand new one, would you ever consider buying an 08 S.D. with a 7.3 if they made em? I ask this cause in the trucking world you can order what they call a glider kit. Which is a cab and chassis, sometimes they come as a rolling chassis with axles and sometimes non at all. Then you put in your own reman or take out engine/trans combo. Saves a ton of money over new and the BEST part no emission motors. There are a ton of 08 semi tractor glider kits for sale now that are running pre 03 emission engines. So you get the comforts of a new style truck with the older style engines. Just a thought but if someone started a company assembling ford trucks in this fasion would you guys be interested?

I'd put a 6.0 in it. I'm still partial to the 05-07 body. The new look hasn't grown on me yet.

it would still be out of my price range. LOL if some one offered that ford would be selling more full rollers than turn key trucks LOL and the company building the 7.3 08's wouldnt be able to keep up with production.

7.3 in '08

That would be great. I personally love the power of my 6.0 but wish it had the reliability record of my old 7.3. (My new truck only has 3200 miles on it yet though!). I always wondered why Ford offers their medium duty trucks with the same model Cummins the Dodge has but doesn't offer it in the pick up truck line? Must be some contractual reason.

well offer the 7.3 or the 6.0 and with every 6.0 they will come with aftermarket headstuds and head gaskets, egr delete and an aftermarket turbo.
