    Get a dodge, that will be my next truck. The two dumps I've had were both fords and I wish I never got rid of the 97 couldnt kill the truck, and I really put it to work. But my 04 6.0 is nothing but issues. Last year I put $11,000 into it in what I consider non routine maitnance. Was actually at the dealership last night working out a deal on a new 3500 dodge. I've always had dodges for personal trucks, but everyone I know that uses them for work trucks says they are much better now, and there alot cheaper then ford it seems.

    again, the point of this thread was NO MORE FORDS. Ive already paid about $32K for this truck, i still owe $19K, they only want to give me $21-$22K for it. that is nuts. that would be like renting a truck for $10K a year. no thanks, in two years it will still be worth mid to lower $20K's and I'll trade it in then ONCE the warranty is up and I have some equity. back in August they were offering me $28K

    Ford screwed the pooch when the 7.3 went away. They got too complex with the 6 series and rushed them into production.

    yeah I was just saying they seem to be doing well. Im still undecided on what ill replace my duramax with in a couple years, gonna give the 6.7s and the new duramaxs a couple years and see how they are

    Yea wasn't even looking but found a deal the other day on the dodge, going tomorrow to see if it will all work out. Like I said I already had 11,000 into my truck last year time to eat my losses and step into something new. And to think its going to cost me less for a brand new dodge then it would for a used ford.

    I personally think im done with diesels after this one. I have 4 now and im getting tired of them. Luckily, 3 are 7.3's and ill most likely keep them over my 08'. i think my next is a GM 6.0L gas job. not worth the $8500 diesel option anymore with all the issues and fuel prices. it really wasnt worth it when i got my 08' but i refuse to get a ford gas engine and was still loyal to my fords

    The only good think I have heard about the 6.4 is it has lots of power. Nothing else.
