New injectors $600
New 6.7 $60,000

You want to spend the extra $59,400?:hehe:

When I bought my 6.0 I planned on studding it etc. because it would be reliable and wayyyyy cheaper than a new truck. Think about how much money you would have to spend to equal a new 6.7. It's crazy IMO.

I could have bought a newer truck, no 6.7 but a solid 08 or 09 but I prefer the 05-07 exterior and they are a ton cheaper because everyone is afraid of the 6.0. I have bulletproofed it, lifted it, modded it and done a bunch of other stuff for the price of the stock 6.4 and a solid 30k cheaper than a new one

Buy a Ferrari. Lol. IMO you can get more out of a well put together 6.0 than you would out of a 6.7 and the 6.7 grill looks like the word FORD with parenthesis around it. Lol

It would only be about 12k to get into a new one, crew.cab... It's hard to decide... I'm not all there when it comes to working on these...

keep it, and bulletproof it. and when the motor does go out, drop a cummins in it. that's my plan.

Since you plow as well you would have to change over the mounts and lights which is more $$$
Dad will do that... I'm going to see how much it would be to boot and go from there... my dad is just really into the new ford and cummins motor because his company is running those and are doing so good for them!

Just curious, why would you ask for opinions, if you aren't gonna use the ones offered.....seems like your mind was already made up????:dunno:

Give the 6.7 a little while, people will probably find bugs and stuff wrong with it. The new fronts of Ford's are ridiculously big to me anyway. Looks were better to me.

I say keep it. The 6.7 is new and relatively unproven at this point. People are discovering its strengths and faults as we speak. With the 6.0, you know what you have, and there is tons of info on how to keep it running great

Who knows but the bean counters.I believe that Kentucky truck will not be in jeopardy,its where the super dutys are made and other products.

After i reread the article,it states that the F150 will be ONE of the biggest trucks......................

Lincoln was the best limo,now look at it.

Mercury is gone.

Hope it was a slip of the tongue :confused:
