Saying Thanks

I would like to say thanks for everyone on this forum for some great information in the past. I will be leaving the ford owningship position on Saturday and taking a Dodge owner spot. After endless issues on my 06 and lemon law case its time to move on. I'm also down sizing I just dont need that much truck for the prices to run it anymore. I have bought a 2008 Dodge 1500 SLT cool chrome.

Once again thanks for the help and information along the way.

2008 Dodge 1500 Quad Cab SLT

2006 F-350 4x4 Crew Cab SB 6.0L Diesel Lariat (trade)
1996 F-250 CC SWB 7.3L XLT traded

oops I thought he was going to another diesel, well if he had, I would have felt the same. I don't know much about Dodge gasser engines. I guess they are ok.

MarkFord14, sorry for your troubles. I would hate to lose my diesel, let alone go through a buy-back to do it. Enjoy the 1500!

No, George, some people will always choose a Dodge/Cummins instead of a Ford/whatever diesel they have out at the time Ford doesn't have a built-in exhaust brake or thumb-control manual shift on their 6-speed. It's fun!

SCT? So your warranty is void and non-EPA compliant now? I'm thinking about doing the same to pick up 4-5 mpg. 375 or so at the wheels?
