I love my 2016 Duramax.   Just hit 30,000 miles with about 8,000 of those towing 14,500 lbs of 5th wheel with zero problems.  The ride and power are great.

Check back with us when it hits 60k.  :yike:

Ford out sells Dodge and Chevy by a country mile.
There are reasons why and it ain't because they are cheaper.

I just sold my 2010 6.4 F-350 with 250,000 miles on it.
It never broke.

Bought a new one in a 2017 without sitting in the cab or driving one.
They are straight up awesome.

I pull a 6 horse goose-neck and it roars over all the mountain passes from here to Salmon Idaho at normal driving speed.

The only problem I have with it is the truck and myself are both here in this armpit of a state.
Can't wait till it heads to the Rockies for good.

Go buy the truck you already know you want.

This is so uncommon, for Ford's.

Thats not true... If the right guy takes care of a diesel pickup it will last for half a million miles. It's all preference. That said, Chevy seems to put plastic parts in places where there should be metal or something stronger, like door handles and tailgates. An insurance adjuster even admitted to me one time that Chevy has the worst reputation for "normal wear and tear" and they always save money on Chevy owners claims... :yike:

As far as deletes go.....is that something that some shops will do for a customer or is that something a mechanic would/could get in trouble for doing?

Cummins.

Nice!

I bought a 2004 2500 Ram Cummings brand new, 180000+ miles still in love, unless it gets totaled will never need another one.  :twocents:

Ford never made a good diesel engine before!  7.3 was international.  6.7 well time will tell, 6.4 was claimed to be awesome too!  Duramax is solid.  Cummins has been king since inception, so what 27+years?  2/3 the parts to brake or replace sums it up.  Now trucks-not engines is a whole other story.  Superpoopy has to be toughest imop.
