Going to pick up a 2015 F250 6.7L CCSB - anything I should look for?

So long story short, my '05 6.0L CCSB was stolen from work last Tuesday (11/12/2019).

Nothing of any sort has shown up.

So I just put a deposit down, and am intending to purchase the vehicle attached below. It's got 146k miles on it.

I'm no stranger to wrenching on a diesel (look up the work I'd done on my 6.0L some time), but figure y'all might be able to better point me to 'trouble spots' with the 6.7L

Thankfully, I hadn't yet gotten around to doing my 4" suspension lift on the '05 6.0L. I do have rear leaves meant for an '08+ (was going to go the PMF bracket route), and full front suspension (upper and lower balljoints, tie rod ends, drag link, Fox shocks for a 4" lift all the way around, Zone 4"-6" radius arms, etc) - I believe the '05-'16 suspension is all the same, minus the longer rear leaves, correct? I can expect to be able to use all my suspension parts on the 2015 I'm planning to pick up?

Obviously, the spare 6.0L + head gaskets + ARP studs are now worthless (unless my '05 turns up!), so I need to figure out what I'm planning on doing there...

But yeah, mostly wondering if all the suspension parts I have will go onto the '15 with minimal fuss, and what issues for the '15 6.7 I should be looking into.

Appreciate any information provided!

Not many issues with the 15 and 16 models (they were essentially the same). The most common issues were the upper oil pan leak and the lower radiator leak on drivers side. My 16 had the upper oil pan leak at 36,000 miles. The fix involves pulling the transmission and transfer case.

Well if you're going to pick it up, then there's nothing to look for! Usually people ask before they go and put a deposit down on one. There is really nothing to be concerned with for a 15+ though. If you intend to keep it as it, there's always a chance emission related components could give you gruff down the line with it already have 146k on it.

If you're going the offroad route then there is really nothing to worry about. Just drive it and have fun. Take care of what kind of fuel you use, be sure to always drain the separator at least once a month and use Ford filters. I can't really speak to suspension aspect of it, but I can't see why they won't work.

Generally speaking you're getting into a very reliable platform that had most of the kinks the early 6.7ls had issues with. If it were me personally... I would find a way to have the emissions devices inspected, to get an idea of what components may give issues sooner than later, change the fluids and filters (there are some breakable plastic fittings fuel filter wise) and just run a fuel additive that's safe for the dpf systems. like optilube, diesel kleen etc... Again you're getting into a totally different platform that at that build year seemed to have all the major concerns worked out etc. You're going to love the raw power and ride of that truck for sure!

My deposit is refundable - until I sign that check tomorrow, I can walk away Sounds like no major issues to speak of, though.

I figure a 400 mile run south on I75 will help ensure the emissions systems have time to do their thing.

Didn't have my 6.0 stolen but did end up selling it this summer and got into a nice 2016 unit. Like they are saying you are going to love that truck. Mine is only an XLT so some differences that you have on interior and screens but I got an Edge CTS to monitor most of my vitals. I just changed the oil for the first time since owning this 16 and to be honest I would rather change the 6.0 twice a week than change this one as often as I intend to. I miss the oil filter on top of the engine already.

I would get on YouTube and watch the videos of www.powerstrokehelp.com. Those guys are awesome. And if you call them they will answer your questions and they are very knowledgeable.

Yeah, I'm already tracking down the various fluids, trying to see what I've got that can still be used (I have multiple 5 gallon buckets of Rotella T6 5w40, for instance, which seems like it'll be fine in the 6.7L)

So after about 600 miles in it - so far, sure, it rides nice. The interior is nice, but I miss having the center jump seat. I'll need to see what's involved in swapping that flow-through console over to the jump seat.

Honestly, though, I miss that 4" MBRP I had on the 6.0

This truck is almost too nice, if that makes sense? It feels like a big car, rather than an honest truck!

I hate the new filter location too, but I learned the trick is to punch a hole in the bottom of the filter (with a big nail/hammer) before you unscrew it... A lot less messy than unscrewing a full oil filter!
