Ours was the 5.4 and I'm ok with getting a bad truck but when something is bad you expect it to be fixable. I gave for over 4 months to "fix" it and before returning it on lease had some aftermarket guys look at it to which they told me to run. I'm surprised how you can write off the idea of spending upwards of $75k on something that never worked properly and then the company you purchase it from telling you it's designed to overheat and stall out. Thats like you installing an irrigation system that has a valve stuck in the open position and flooding someone's yard and telling the HO that its operating within spec.
