RE: Ford running out of diesel engines

Sounds like they need to go back to the Cummins for the 650 and up. Exactly. We just passed on ordering 3 new F750 dump trucks at my work in large part because of the Ford 6.7L being the only diesel engine available in them. We went with Freightliner M2's with the 6.7L Cummins. :) Cummins welcomes you and your company to the CP4.2 world. Also your shop better switch over to 10W30 oil and not run the standard 15W40 that everybody and their brother runs. Back in early March I was on a Ram/Jeep/Chrysler lot looking at a Wrangler and noticed that 50% of the RAM HD trucks were gas powered. If you only include SRW trucks they're were more Hemi's than Cummins powered trucks. I never in the history of looking at HD trucks have I seen so many gas engines in HD trucks. Later walked over to the Ford lot next door (same dealer) and they were all Power Strokes. It would be interesting to know if the 6.7L Cummins in the heavier applications like the Freightliner M2 use the CP4. Anyone know? Shiner? If they end up being a POS I won’t hesitate to post with that information. With respect to the HD Rams being 50% gassers, that is definitely not the situation in my neck of the woods. I would estimate well over 95% of HD Rams here having the Cummins. With respect to my work, we currently have a contract with Ford for supply of vehicles up to and including F550 but we don’t buy any diesels, they are all gas. Prior to about 2015 many of the HD Fords were diesel but there were too many expensive repairs that completely changed the philosophy of vehicle specs.. Interesting How the FISH is so informed on CTD and RAM. :B I just had a look at the website of the dealer I bought my truck from; they have 30-Ram 3500's in stock and every one of them is a CTD. ;)

RE: What's up with the DEF Delete?

In my search for a truck it seems like any 2015-2016 F350 SRW is gone the day it hits the lot. I did find a very nice lower mileage in great shape but the salesmen told me it had the DEF delete done. From what I understand it removes all the mechanical parts for the DEF and re-programs the computer. He says it's a service his shop offers and has become fairly popular. Claims to still pass emissions etc but offers better MPG and HP, but frankly, it makes me nervous. I feel like I'd rather have a stock truck. I called my mechanic and he didn't know much about it. Is this something to stay away from? What exactly are you looking for? I'm looking to trade my 15 Silverado 3500 SRW CCSB 54k miles one owner. Can give you more details if interested. Thanks for the offer. Looking specifically for a 2015 or newer F350 6.7l with under 100k miles. Heading to a dealership today which has about 4 on hand. My 2007 f150 has been fairly trouble free for 250k miles so I've become brand loyal. Nothing at all wrong with Chevy or Dodge, but it has to be a Ford for me. JMHO but be careful with brand loyalty. I was a die hard Ford man too and my last Ford diesel turned me on to the truck in my sig, which I'm very happy with. Your F150 is a completely different animal than a 2015 and up F350.

RE: New Ram is awsome!

Yep, they are really awesome trucks with a fantastic powerplant. We love our 2013 too. :C

RE: 2021 Ford F150 Revealed

Yep, it looks great as expected. Good job Ford! It truly is pretty tough to go wrong with an F-150.

RE: What's with Bio diesel?

Thanks for the replies. It makes sense and no reason to exclude these. Curious though why F350's are so hard to find? I've looked at countless places for these trucks and at best there are only a handful for sale. I can't stomach the sticker on a new one but even those seem pretty rare. I guess it's just supply and demand and people probably keep them forever. I think it has way more to do with your location than anything. Up here, there are PLENTY of 6.7L F-350's for sale.

RE: 2012 Ram diesel with over 1million miles

Very impressive. I'm even more impressed with how clean and in good condition the exterior still is. These stories are one of the reasons I went with the Ram/Cummins.

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

WTH does the border being closed due to the Rona have to do with pepper spray? Now don’t you be bringing common sense into this discussion now.....:B

RE: Tire Balance

Discount Tire balanced both sets of GY ENDURANCE tires I have purchased without asking to do so. Discount Tire in Burlington gave me the absolute best service at a tire shop I’ve ever had by far. In and out in an hour with 4 new BF Goodrich Commercial T/A’s, balanced and dressed perfectly for a great price on my last fiver. I was totally impressed.

RE: Anyone order a new Ford 7.3 gas?

The FORD 7.3 Gas is Fords knock off of the GM LS engine line. It certainly has proven an effective design, why fight with an overhead cam, especially for HD use. Exactly right. It’s pretty tough to argue the durability of the LS engines. It is one of the main reasons I bought a Yukon 5.3L instead of a Ford with the 5.4L.

RE: Burbman Crosses over to the Dark Side....

Congratulations! You’re going to love it! I’m sure it will be tough to let the Burb go, though. We love the 2001 Yukon we bought to tow our boat.

RE: New Heavy Chevy!

More good news the more I look into the truck. Carb is a 750 Edelbrock. Good size for that motor happy w that. And mates up nice with the Performer 2 intake. Better news is it’s a Vortec Gen VI motor not a gen v TBI. Same benefits as the TBI with 1 piece main seals but has roller cam and a bit better ports. Provided it’s stock of course. Looks like it and idles almost too smooth for a carb big block. Still not a monster power engine but not gutless by any means. That's great! The Vortec is a huge upgrade from TBI.

RE: Anyone order a new Ford 7.3 gas?

I nearly bought one two days ago from Elk Grove Ford. The MSRP was $50,480 without the options. I could have bought it for $46,852.38 out the door. My Grand Son is a Homicide Det in Sac Ca and the owner Cole Wood who is the owner of Elk G Ford, sponsors my GS Homicide partner in Race Car. Cole loves Law E and Service People so he more or less sells the cars etc at his costs. 430 HP at 5500 RPM 3,55 axle ratio I decided at my age that I did not need that much truck so decided on a 2020 XLT F250 Ford for $40K OTD So you bought the 6.2L?
