    Well threads over a year old, how do you like? What I've learned talking to 6.7 owners is they start like a Gasser even in the cold. No more 7.3 miss and knock till oil reaches op temp. I've heard they're good motors. I'm a Dodge/Cummins guy but to each there own. My 6.7 Cummins is nice but I think I'm going to sell it and stick with the 5.9

    As for parking, and the extra cost of owning a diesel. Just excuses for guys that can't make up their mind, scared or their wife secretly hold their jewels in her purse .

    My 10 and my 94 both land yachts the 94 at 23ft bumper to bumper and the 2010 at 21ft, never had issues parking either of em. Just need to learn to drive

    Just curious why you would sell the 6.7 and go with a 5.9? I would never go back to a 5.9.

    I really like this truck, I have about 40,000 km or 25,000 miles on it and I wouldn't trade it back for a half ton or a gas truck anytime soon.

    Starts good, gets good mileage, can pull like no tomorrow, I'm quite happy with it.

    Parked next to a Smart car the other day, I don't know how anyone can drive one of those things...

    Nice rig! I've had em all at one point or another...Fords have given the best result in my case. I've owned one diesel Ford, 08' F-350. Only other diesel was a 07' Ram 2500. Gotta say, the F-series was so much more refined as a vehicle in general. The Dodge was like driving a tractor compared to the ford...and who wants to drive a lame ass tractor??????

    Nice ride, congrats! Diesel enthusiasts will argue until they die about whats best etc, I don't think you can really go wrong with anything that new, no matter what it is. My old man recently picked up a 2015 Chevy with the Duramax, impressive truck. I've taken a few rides in basically the exact same truck you have there, driven a dodge, and do a fair amount of tugging around a Ditch Witch or Skidsteer for work with a 2006 Duramax. They're all great machines, comes down to personal preference. I own a gasser and the next truck I buy will be a diesel.

    Might want some meatier tires on there come winter time!

    Fair enough. The 2nd gens have a spot in my heart too. As do the 1st gens. I'm keeping my eye out for a 12v reg cab. You should delete yours and it won't have expensive issues. It'll be a whole new truck.

    Another big turn off is I like to customize and tinker I can't do that with the 4th gen, if I do something to it its going to be correct with the right tools and parts, I couldn't do that on it cause its expensive so just the basics
