    What were you runnung before ? I love our 11 D max so far. 15k on it and no problems and will run circles around any 7.3,6.0 or 6.4

    I have an 07. I like it but no more pick ups for me. They are scratch & dent magnets!

    When your chevy hits 500K like on most 7.3 then your statement will be relevant ...

    Thanks but I still have 3 7.3 trucks and they have there share of problems too. Rusting oil pans ,cps, rusting fuel tanks , h pops . I wanted to try a new Chevy due to all the problems we have with the Fords. And as I said so far so good. My Ford dealer last week had 34 trucks waiting for thier diesel tech so I had to wait till this week to put my 07 in again.

    I have rusty oil pans but you can't mock one of the best diesels made. The duramax maybe the flavor for the time but don't count Ford down the 2011 and new diesels are made by for ford code name scorpion.

    Spend some time over at the dieselstop.com they are having thier fair share of problems. There was a 2011 450 in my dealers shop for the last 2 weeks waiting for a new motor. It only had 33k on it. One of the local mulch places has a 2011 that has been in the shop 3 times since april 1. The oil pan issue is not just as simple as replacing just the oil pan, you must pull the motor from the truck to replace it which makes it a 2k repair.Hopefully ford does get it right with the new 6.7 but I wont touch one till they have become a proven motor. Now days for the price of a 550 diesel dump you can spend a few k more and buy a freightliner that will make it past 100k.
