Exclamation Bye bye duracrap

Hello all, my name is Johnny, my wife and I own and operate a transport company. Currently we have a 2012 duracrap with 200,000 miles on it and it has been in the shop constantly since it was 8,000 miles old. I'm done with it and going back to a ford, we average over 10,000 miles a month. I know they have improved the 6.7 over the years and I am going to ask a question I'm sure has been asked a million times but please be kind since I'm sitting on the side of the road with no time to search, what year is the most reliable 6.7?

Thanks guys and I look forward to being on here!

I'd stick with 2012-14, the 11's I've read had turbo issues.

Any injector or head gasket trouble out of the 6.7s?

I like what I'm hearing!

I figure the egr is a problem on them, it sure was on my 6.0, how hard are the 6.7s to delete? Going truck shopping this weekend.

The 6.7 has had very minimal issues with its drivetrain as far as diesel pickups go. The early trucks had reports of turbo failures along with C&C trucks. In general, they seem to hold their own very well. Physically and structurally the F series drivetrain/frame is top dog for a working truck. EGR issues are nothing compared to the 6.0L you remember. With that said, its good for the health of any diesel engine to delete and kits are becoming available on the market.

Make sure to post pics if you do end up the proud owner of a new truck!

The 200k factor has killed my trade in value and put me upside down in the truck, looks like I will be shifting my focus to a 6.4 instead. Anything to watch out for there?

Thanks for all the replies.

As much as I like my 6.4 you may want to hold out for a 6.7 based off what you use it for. The issues with the 6.4 aren't as frequent as the 6.0 but they are extremely costly when something goes wrong. The 6.4 is considered a fuel pig. I baby it and can average about 17mpg on summer fuel mostly county commuting. If you do get a 6.4 it's important to do the deletes which will cost you around $2k egr, dpf, intake, and a tuner.

Yeah I would see if you could absolutely squeeze for a 6.7, a 2012 6.7 would suit you very well. There are many around here that with about 60,000-70,000 miles that are selling for about 30k.

I would not get a 6.4 if ultimate reliability is what you're looking for.
