I hear little issues to watch for, but nothing like I had to learn on my old 6.0. Is the factory programming decent on the 6.7? After Ford dealerships kept flashing my 6.0, the truck turned into a turd and I paid to have my FICM repaired and re-flashed to bring it back to where it was power wise when it was new.

Kper05.....can I ask why you said that you want a DEF truck over a non DEF truck?

Am I reading y'all correctly that Cab and Chassis models had a lower output (guessing via the tune) from the factory? Since I am only looking at F450 & F550 that pretty much means I will be corralled into a lower output engine. My old truck was a 13' stake bed body so the ~200" wheelbase truck is what I start with. Bummer to hear that Ford de-tunes the F450 F550 C&C :-\
This is correct in the Cab & Chassis but, there is a pickup version of the F450 that has the full power motor, I have one. You can still put a flatbed on it, it's just a little more work since the bed rails are a little different. A 13' bed would be a little long, 10' is probably the max I would go on mine, it will be getting a flatbed soon, most likely 8 - 9 feet. The power reduction in the C&C is more than just de-tuning, the turbo is smaller and there are some other mechanical differences in the motor, it's done to improve longevity.

Also, it is possible to have a 6.7 that doesn't need DEF, it just requires putting it on a weight loss program and changing the programming. My truck doesn't require DEF.

Others have already said it but, if you can go a 2015 or later. I limited my search to trucks 2103+, the 2015+ were just a bit out of my budget.

Ford didn't design or build the 6.0 and 6.4 engines. International did and sold them to Ford. The 6.7 is Ford designed and built.
