I pull 12K with my 6.2 AND it has the much maligned and vilified 3.73 gears in it. It pulls great. No complaints. Love the truck, love the 6 spd auto trans. Love that super steep 1st gear. Manual...

I just completed a 3K mile round trip unloaded to Phoenix, AZ and back. All highway (obviously), mix of flat land, rolling hills and mountain grades. I averaged between 70 and 80 mph, the only time I...

We stayed in West Yellowstone, at the KOA when we went in '09. Great CG, very clean and quiet, with plenty of amenities. It really wasn't a problem for us to travel into the park each day to see the...

I wouldn't take it for free.

Vehicle fires get very, very hot. Like changing temper in steel and iron hot. Let alone the aluminum parts.

There's nothing on that engine that I would trust to use...

My last attempt at communicating with you.

You can't get advice to help your specific case, unless you give us SPECIFIC details.

All you've given us so far is you have these old trucks sitting...

You are firmly in the dually F350 range in my opinion. If you go 6.2 gas, then I think the 4.30's are almost mandatory as well.

And this is from a guy that pulls 12K with a 6.2 gas and 3.73 gears....

For me, it's a combination of things really.

First, I don't pull heavy all the time. If I did, I would seriously consider the 6.7. The highest percentage of my driven miles are unloaded or...

Well, you don't know me. But, I don't regret my truck having 3.73's. Just completed a week long trip through Blackhills/Mt. Rushmore and back pulling 12k. Truck performed fantastic. I'm as happy...

I'm still running my original battery in my '12 as well, and it gets down to -40 here in winter, and +95 in summer... Don't know about the dealer's "junk" comment. I think I would ignore anything...
