New to 6.7's

Hello everyone,

As my title says I made the switch from a 2002 F350 7.3L to a 2018 F250 6.7, so far I don't regret it. It was a long decision making process for me. I can definitely say the power/torque on demand is night and day compared to my 7.3L.

I made the same switch. It is night and day. Rides so much better. Has all the new comforts. Towed so much better.

Similar story here. Went from a 97 F-350 crew cab 7.3 to a 2016 F-350 crew cab 6.7. I had that old girl for 20+ years - and still loved it. But the pressure from wifey to get out of that old truck (sigh . .) and move into the 21st century was just more than I could handle. So I got the new-to-me truck, and I haven't looked back. Though there's still technology to be mastered, this truck has more go power and stopping power (and towing power) than that old truck had with all the performance enhancing add-ons I spent fortunes on.

You will love your new ride!

Congrats, I think something over looked is the night and day of steering.

No effort on turning those big boys.

Man that American Flag sign is Awesome!
When I made the switch I went with the long bed from short bed, because I tow a fifth wheel toy hauler and hated the sliding hitches. I had the auto slider from pullrite but had issues with it.

Yea my 7.3 short bed could not pull a u-turn in a lot of places that this long bed can. The feel is defiantly different also.

On my rural back road in the 6.0 at times I have to have both hands on the wheel and My 6.0 front has been gone thru and in great condition, but in that 6.7 I can handle it with one hand with just the thumb and index finger, not that I condone that type of driving. I'm just impressed with the power steering and ease of turning on 6.7. I'd like to say The trucks have changed but the 6.7 really don't drive like a truck to me.
