LOL. Good stuff.

Nice to see that in AU you can make your car look all outbackish from the get go.

my 1999 F250 did get better fuel mileage but the 6.0 you mash the gas you better be hanging on! 2004 F250 XLT CC, LB 6spd automatic

[QUOTE=Smalltimer1]Do you own a 6.0???:confused:[/QUOTE

I own my own business and also own a farm.

The one my Middle brother owns is a 2004 F350 and it has been to the dealer with fuel and turbo problems. He wants to buy a Duramax because his son, my Nephew, has a Duramax and is all grins and giggles, and I can see why after driving it..

My Uncle has a 2005 F250 and it also has been to the dealership to replace the turbo which failed...The truck has fewer than 15,000 miles.
My youngest brother owns a Toyota dealership and has a 2001 PSD 7.3 that he pulls his trailer with, but that doesn't count, cause he lives in Olathe Kansas.

Both are dissapointed because they traded...you guessed it...reliable 7.3s in on the new models...

I grew up owning Ford trucks and am brand loyal. My first Ford truck was a NEW 1972 model.

I currently own a 7.3 F 350 flatbed and love it. I replaced the turbo at 110,000 miles after running intake and exhaust mods with a Superchips programmer.
I replaced both batteries and all the battery wires at 98k and thats all I have had to do.

Ford still sells the 7.3 in the export market. For a good reason.:p :p :p :p

I've had zero problems with my 6.0....no plans on stepping backwards to a 7-3 or down to a dura-maxipad either with questionable aluminum head construction. One of the guys in the FD lost his Dura to a warped head this past year.

edit: I also run my own operation and work on the family farm as well...

Funny, I did the currency conversion and in good old US greenbacks it's $59K+ starting price.
