Not if you have a gantry:-huh. My garage is a bit light on cab removal stuff. Thanks for the comments. Sounds like I can get the routine stuff done without major disassembly.

Cheers,

Hopefully none!

I was just wondering if the cab removal "feature" was part of the 6.2. By most accounts it is a good truck, except transmission gremlins have not been completely eradicated. Saw there is a TSB for...

Does cab need to be removed on 6.2l gas?

I am considering a 2013 F250 or 350 4x4 in the near future. I have been reading that the 6.7 need the cab removed for many repairs, but I am wondering if that is true for the 6.2 gasser?

I like...

Good points, Moto Me

I'd also add the GM debacle with the 5.7/6.2 offerings in the late 70's to early 80's didn't help the diesel cause. It is interesting to see that the little VW rabbit/caddy pick ups are fetching...

Yikes!

My 6.0 has almost exactly that, and I'm out of warranty (over 5 years).

Nothing wrong with Cummins...by most accounts they make a pretty solid product. A 3.9 could work if they can tune it up...

You should see some of the new diesels

I agree the old diesels were both noisy and smelly, but these new diesels are quiet and clean, and I mean really quiet and really clean. Plus, they get better fuel mileage. It would depend on the...

Agree with this...

My 6.0 PSD is bone stock and I have no trouble moving through traffic. The new Cummins is so quiet that I had to double check to make sure there was a "C" on the badge.

How come these phantom diesel's are always 2 years out. The F150 was supposed to get one in 2009, now that appears tabled. Ranger diesel still has yet to appear. Baby duramax is still a dream...

No ricer here...

Although I will own up to being a 2x ford owner, with the current rig being a F250 PSD. My PSD gets the same mileage as my old 4.6 Triton. I did use the search feature, and saw some discussions,...

Any idea why this is so?

I am wondering why Europe is so obviously diesel heavy and the US is not. Diesel can be very clean (the EU has at least as strict emissions standards as the US) I am starting to think that in a free...

How come no US Ranger Diesel?

I was searching around and noticed that the UK has a nice little ranger pick up with a 2.5 L diesel. I have been long hoping a company would introduce a small or mid-size pick up with a diesel motor...
