Waiting fore the GM 8.0L big block due out later in 2020 and of course the RAM 9.0L big block

The old mine is bigger, king of the hill is good for us big block folks.

The GM 8.0L big block just might change my mind...would take the new body style and those too many bells and whistles (for me)

I wonder if Ford has fixed the death wobble on the new 2020. Over on the IRV2 site there's a thread about Fords death wobble and the TSB thats out. Looks like a band-aide fix coming Jan.


Unfortunately that always seems to be the case when this issue pops up. The new Jeep and Ram has also had issues with this and difficult to resolve.

They are just hitting the dealers so probably not many yet. Join the Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forum, 2017+Super Duty (ford-truck.com/forums/forum279) and you might get more information. It's a pretty active forum and a few have had their ordered 7.3's delivered. I haven't seen any reports of anyone towing anything yet with either the 7.3 or the newly upgraded 6.7 diesel. Initial reports are good on both.
A friend of mine test drove a 2020 model F-450 diesel, and told me he could tell a pretty significant difference in it versus his 2017 F-450 set up the same way. He said it's a hoss, and it has a little different sound to it when idling, he said a more noticeable lop to it, versus the previous. He was very impressed with the overall performance. I have yet to test drive one, but hope to soon. We have quite a few diesels showing up on our local dealers lots, but no big gasser's yet. You look like you have one coming, how is it speced out, obviously a diesel, single rear wheel, long bed, 4wd, it looks like from your signature. What all will you tow? Sounds like a nice rig!


I pick mine up in the morning. It is being delivered to the dealer this afternoon. Besides the 4X4 Platinum, diesel, long bed it will have the 3.31 e locker, bed spray, 5th wheel prep, upfitter switches, customer installed trailer camera, block heater, rapid heat with 397 alternator, cab lights, and fitted floor mats. It will pull our fifth wheel and bass boat, not at the same time. We are looking at maybe downsizing our fifth wheel in the next year.
Sounds real nice! Post some pictures if you get a chance.

What does that have to do with a thread about the new 7.3 gasser?

What do you need 8 or 9 liters for nowadays? Your signature was last updated in 2015.

I like the '17-'19 Super Duty's, but I really like the '20 Super Duty... Here's a guy from your neck of the woods who I like to watch who just purchased a '20 Super Duty jewel. [emoticon]

I'm talking to myself to resist the urge...

I also like this one!

I've driven mine for a couple of days now. It is much more solid in the front end than what my 17 was. I had to change the steering stabilizer in the 17 to get rid of the bump steer. I've intentionally driven the 20 over some bad roads to see what happens and nothing but normal. No shaking or anything and that was before I changed the shocks. I had ordered a set of Fox 2.0 shocks before I got it. That is one of the first things I do when I get a new truck, get the factory ones off and put a set of good ones on. The ride with the Fox shocks is really much smoother and controlled.

Power wise there is a noticeable difference in the seat of the pants torque. The 10 speed is almost like driving the wife's Subaru with its CVT. Very smooth with very little feel of any shifting. I had the adaptive cruise set at 75 on the way home and got stuck behind a car going 60. When I moved over to go around it got back to 75 very quickly but never shifted out of 10th gear. It will be a while before I tow anything so can't say anything about that yet.
