If job 1 doesn't have the new rod, whose trading their truck in to get it? Sounds like panic over it.

RCD is a pretty reputable shop. I would lean towards believing them that they have access to know that the latest 6.7s have these "upgraded" rods.

No panic...still a 100k warranty, right? Just interesting if Ford decided this needed to be addressed.

Running changes are not unheard of. But if this is true, and a boost in hp or torque is coming, then the early job 1 trucks may be left out?
There has been a lot of talk about 6.7 connecting rods. But I would think the number of affected vehicles is very small.

As speculated, this isn't an issue with the current 6.7's that aren't tuned. It's just a preparatory move to get ready for the 2019 power bump.

Just out of curiosity, but can rods be replaced without taking the top of the engine off? Can it be done from the bottom up? No, I'm not planning to do it but just wondering if the oil pan can be taken off and the crank dropped out to provide access to the connecting rods and wrist pins. I dunno.

No.
And if the wrist pins are larger you may need new pistons as well.

Darn it.... And I thought a new video idea was in the making.

Hmmm
If Ford announces the 2018's will have 1000ft/lb I will lose my mind. I just got my serial number today for my 2017 F450 that should be built in the next few weeks.
I put down $1000. Perhaps the dealer would work with me in getting a 2018.

The power bump comes in 2019 along with the 10 speed trans. No worries for now...

I'd be ok with that. I'm not into testing new transmissions anyway.

Not too sure how much of a test it will be. The Raptor had that 10 speed transmission already and the service guys tell me it has been flawless.

I didn't know they could tow as much as a 6.7 truck.
That's impressive.
