Well, I read more than I post (which everyone in the universe is glad for lol) and figure that a 6.7 under warranty is better than the threat of a 6.4, so I bought one.

2017 with 20k, had everything exactly as I wanted except one thing. Anyone have recommendations on returning a lift to stock suspension?

Wow, I guess I'm the ONLY one with a 11-15 6.7 that hasn't had any trouble out of it! I feel honored. Really now, when you look at the active topics on this website, how many threads are even in the 6.7 forums? I only see one or two on average. That should tell you something. Early on there was a lot of "SKY IS FALLING" comments in reference to the water in fuel issue but there's not much mention of this anymore. Whatever! I have 184K on my June 2010 build 6.7 and love it!

Whats your point of the post? You can go get a Duramax or Cummins. I love my 2018 6.7l. Fords been in house since 2011 and they got this motor down. Appears you did not do your research when you purchased that 6.4. All trucks have their good and bad years. So your post sounds like rant post that should be deleted as it really does not add any value here. Good luck on your journey!

Thank you for the welcome and I appreciate it. Many forums do not allow a page long rant about nothing as it starts a bunch of more rants but I will follow your rules, your forum. I have been on forums for the past 20 years with dozens of vehicles and people like that just irritate the crap out of me. I really do not get what the point of OP is? He complains about a truck that has over 200k then bashes everything else? Yes, I understand post counts and being a "newbie on this forum" but I found the post to be useless. I have owned many HD trucks. 3 Fords 2005 F-250 King Ranch 6.0, 2009 F-350 6.4 Lariat and my current 2018 6.7l. Also owned 2 RAMS - 2012 Cummins 6.7l HO 2500 Big Horn and a 2016 2500 PowerWagon with the 6.4l HEMI and one Chevy, a 2015 Duramax 6.6l 3500. Funny thing is the Duramax gave me the most trouble out of all my trucks!Perhaps I got a lemon with the Chevy but never complained about it. So I have owned my fare share of trucks and all have gremlins. I will play nice and avoid any issues and only reply to relevant posts that make sense.

Dang thats alot of vehicles.

I know some forums have “senior rights” and “cliques” and thread count heirarchy. You won’t find that here. Its just a bunch of guys trying to help others out.

Lol, sorry I am used to other forums. I was bad and older and wiser now bought too many trucks wasted lots of money. I loved that power wagon! But it could not pull my new trailer like I am used to with owning prior diesels and pulling my older trailers. That 6.4l HEMI is a great motor but peak Tq. and HP were at high RPs, so that thing would scream loud! plus shift up and down and was averaging 4-5 miles per gallon when towing and bad sway with the softer coils in the rear now with current rig averaging 11.5 mpgs and why I got this Ford after much research I like that I still have rear locker and front hubs! plus this 6,7l is a beast and got the bugs worked out. Most of the forums are pretty harsh so it is nice to hear that community here. Sorry about that everybody! I look forward to positive comments!

Gonna assume that’s directed at me, but if not, the points still remain.

I did 2 years of research before buying a very low mileage and very well cared for 6.4. The crux of all of that research is that if you are mechanically inclined, do (sometimes expensive) preventive maintenance, don’t over tune, and watch the cooling system like a hawk, the 6.4 is a really good motor.

Hogwash. That motor isn’t good durability-wise, and last I checked before I traded it in it still had a big blue oval on the front hat said “Ford.” Not only was the motor bad, but the front end was/is a death trap regardless of how much money and parts were thrown at it. Ford knew it, knows it, even sent me correspondence addressing it (no recall of course, just a suggestion t slow down if it starts shaking. Which I assume also implied “hopefully before the right front wheel separates and crashes your truck?”)

Since the 2011 switch, there are still some bothersome things like the death wobble, but I believe the 6.7 is a real solution and I now have a 2017 I bought a few weeks ago as a CPO vehicle. I have LOTS of reading to do, and I missed the convo for a while for an elk hunting trip, but I’ll be back to reading until I feel I have something useful to offer. Hoping not to ask dumb questions.
