It's that time....

I have decided it's time to retire my 2000 F-350 for a new 6.7 at some point this summer. Do you gentelmen have any dealers to recommend? Preferably west side of the detroit metro area. I have not been to one since the warrenty expired on current truck back in '04. I do all my own repairs and am a little out of the loop far as whos the best right now. I wouldn like to buy from the dealer I would bring it to for service for the extra goodwill that provides. Thanks guys!

I can not recommend a dealer, but i would recommend doing some reading on the problems that they are having with the 6.7.

I have also been looking at a new 6.7 to replace my early 99 7.3 PSD, but have not like what i have been reading.

I can send you the links that are from another forum if you like, just send me a PM.

I have been spending quite a bit of time in the 6.7 forums. I don't buy anything first year of production because you will always have a few teething issues. I've been talking to a few buddies outside of FTE and heard nothing but good things about the engine-one works in the towing industry and 6.7 trucks have been model "employees" and if problems are widespread he will also be towing them-which he was with the 6.4s-has yet to tow a 6.7. The other is actually a Ford employee working in there technical assistance call center which says the only repeat issue on the 6.7 they have had has been CONTAMINATED fuel. I am a dealer tech (not Ford unfortunetly) and we probably get one or two vehicles a month that get "food posioning" and just need fresh fuel. The only time I see Bosch common rail pumps get chewed up are the ones that get driven running poorly until they run no more or get "pond scum" from somewhere.

With that said...........I wish you the best of luck.

I have come to realize that no engine will ever duplicate the 7.3s reliability again due to ever increasing regulation and i'm ok with that. Sorry if I came on a little strong.....just a little tired of all the paranoid speculation in the 6.7 forums based off one regular FTE member and a few new members stirring the pot with alleged problems. I need a bigger truck-Its something I will just have to live with.

I would be interested in talking to you about your current truck when the time comes to replace it.

Shoot me a PM sometime.
