if you do the fan shroud delete, you can use how long handle 1/2 inch ratchet or breaker bar. No need to have a special tool to do the job. Any work you do around the front end of the engine you will thank yourself for that fan shroud delete

One of the fellows who did it a few years back toes a 5th wheeler that is around 12,000 lb if I remember correctly. He has had no temperature issues pulling in California in summertime.

Welp, not sure if you guys heard or not, but my 6.7 already blew up. I always missed my 6.0 so instead of buying another 6.7 or going to an F-150 I'm coming back to 6.0 life. I looked at this truck today (along with 13 others in the past 2 weeks), and I'm picking this one up tomorrow. Anyone know if the owner of it is around the forums? I know it has a couple issues like a blower motor and some power steering issue but the thing I'm most confused about is the head studs on this truck. When he bought it one side was studded and one was not. The not studded side blew up and he got a new head and head studs but only had that side studded. If the other side is good and studded I don't see a reason to pull the heads but I'm also not a mechanic and I don't know if the other head is warped or cracked or anything. I talked to the shop and they just do what the customer says, if someone says they want 1 head dealt with then they do 1 head. The guys total bill for a new head and studding 1 head along with a couple other things was $10,800 and that was done 3k miles ago.

Please post a pic of the engine bay.

Sounds kinda dangerous if engine is running and fan is all exposed.

Good looking truck but $11k to do only one head? FACK!!! Remind me to not go there

People never have enough time/money to do the job right, but somehow they always find the time/money to do it twice
