I had a friend of mine who is a truck and car nut looking for me. He sent me a TXT this morning and said he bought my truck and needed the insurance stuff so he could drive it of the lot. I got it sight unseen and He sent me the pictures after the fact. I had to that point no idea what it was going to be. Chevy Dodge Ford..... and I did not really care as long as my parameters were met. I said get me a Diesel 4 door truck. He also had my max budget.
I like the cummins engine better than the ford, but dodge can't build a transmission to save their life. I know how to work on diesels and have not much of an idea on Transmissions. So this worked out just fine for me.
The most problems that the 6.7 seems to have involve the EPA exhaust and fuel system..... well that stuff is going to be next to the truck in short order anyway and wrapped up in a tarp. Problem #1 solved.
I had an inkling that I was going to end up with a Ford as he has 3 of them ... 250, 350 and 450 all of them diesels
I have had a couple of ford cars in the past and hope they build a better truck than they do cars lol

Nice looking beasty there. Never been around a 6.7 but sure liked my 7.3's I had. I wish they made em yet and put an older style Allison behind them. They would of been as near bulletproof as you could get then Imo.

Got her home. I drove up with the GMC train from the admiral, borrowed my buddies trailer, stuck the GMC on that and towed it home. 5 hours each way . Its already got the DEF crap taken out and is straight piped with a 5 inch pipe and is chipped. I.ll change the tuner on it though as this guy went just for power and I want something adjustable. All thats left for me to do is the tuner change, EGR and throttle body delete and a cold air intake with a decent filter. I am shooting for 20 mpg on the economy mapping and enough power to move the moon on the top power setup. One bit at a time as I have to go down to Hilton Head Island next monday for about a week and I want to take the 250 with me on that trip as I have a fuel tank to bring back home to eld.

Less than at the moment. The beast did 12.5 MPG towing that car hauler loaded with the GMC Train through the smokey mountains. My dodge will drink to the tune of 6 mpg or even less doing the same thing.

Hi Scuba -

Nice new vechile!

Since it is a Ford, you may consider using Ford diesel fuel conditioner. It has extra lubricants for the fuel system and cetane booster. It might help you get your 20 mpg.

In June of 2019, got my new F-350 6.7 diesel Crewcab shortbed Lariat Ultimate with many options, except no sunroof. It has 16,000 miles and the mpg is still improving. I put on a fiberglass cap which hides tools and gear, plus it controls that turbulent sailboat fuel that reduces mpg.

I have towed with it a bumper pull equipment trailer grossing about 15,000. The pulling, controlling, and easy stopping is oautstanding! I love mine. Hopefully yours is great too.

That looks like a mean truck in great shape. Nice buy!
