Family is split between fords and chevys and I'll never buy a ford with the troubles we have had. All the way from the 6.9idi to the 6.7 power stroke. Fuel pumps going, injectors needing rebuilds at 2600$ a set, high pressure oil pump needing replacement at 1000$. Oil coolers leaking in the 6.0, headhaskets on the 6.0 if u don't treat them right. Oil pressure regulators. Have you ever changed a serpentine belt on a 6.0l ?.

99 cummins has 300k on it and put 3 vp44 in it and 2 transmissions. My 01 has the 6 speed nv5600, tows anything great and pulls the hills at 68mph no issues at all. Injectors are cheap, headstuds are cheap for mild hp increase security.
Yes dodge trucks do rust away but I have seen plenty of fords in the same boat.

Never had a chevy. But they ride a lot smoother due to the independent front suspension.


Buy a truck from the lower states that don't use salt and your ahead of the game. Auto or stick they both need work.
