    I just love how nice the 6.4 was that I looked at. I read horror stories though of their fuel mileage and problems. Who of you has one currently or has had one and did you like it or have any problems?

    I had one. Fuel mileage is horrible unless you delete the DPF, cat and tune it.

    Here's my '09. I love everything about the truck except the fuel mileage is rediculous.

    It pulls that 9,000 travel trailer quite easily.

    yeah thats why we stick with 6.0s until i can afford 08s+ and do all that lol. But knew a guy that had one with all this done and milage wasnt bad at all after that work and was a bad truck! id still get one.. just know that id have to do all the work to make it "acceptable" in my mind.

    only reason i havent done the DPF delete and tuned mine is becuz it voids tht nice 100,000 mile warranty!!

    I know what you mean, that would be a tough choice.
