New Truck

Do you guys think that I am crazy if I trade my 2000 F350 - 7.3 on a 2007 - 6.0 Diesel. I love my truck, but it has close to 200,000 miles on it and if I keep it I will probably need to spend a few dollars on it like front hubs, bearings, water pump, brakes and the like soon. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif

You can’t even see the engine it has so much stuff on top and around it. It must be a nightmare to work on one of those engines!

The biggest concern about jumping to the 2007 is not that it has a 6.0L in it, but rather the complicated emmission systems that "true" 2007's and later will have. Notcie the ULSD (Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel) stickers on pumps lately? starting 2007 stricter emmissions will be imposed on diesel vehicles, causing more equipment, higher prices, and more problems. From what I have heard from a Ford Repair manager replacing this stuff will make catlytic convertor problems of the 70's look like nothing. My suggestion: If you really want a new truck get an 06 (pre new equipment), or a low mileage 7.3L. But what do I know I was born in Conroe! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

No you are absolutely right. What I meant by "true" 2007's were those made to be sold after January 1st 2007.
