Popular Post Rob Posted February 16, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted February 16, 2021 Found this truck as a possible candidate to replace my trusty, but crusty old Dodge which I've been forced to removed from service. The frame has literally rusted in two and the truck is no longer safe to operate; nor worth the effort to repair. I've located this truck which is a 2007, and supposedly from Texas. No other history than that I'm afraid. The selling dealership only knows it is a new car trade and has no history. Odometer shows 189K so one of the better 6.0 diesels from what I've heard and read. It did start right up cold at -2 degrees yesterday but I did not drive it. I'm told it has yet to go through their shop for checkover as it's just been received so not ready to sell it yet. I know these diesels can be problematic if updates have not been done and maintenance routines are kept strict. Also I feel front ends are originally weak but aftermarket parts take care of this. I'm concerned about the engine and whether it may or may not have EGR problems, sticking vanes in the turbocharger, cracked or leaking degas tank, etc. I've not looked into any of this as well as a hot restart problem these are known for before upgrades. I have the vin and going to speak with a couple of Ford dealerships to see if anything can be learned for history today but that won't do much for the aftermarket. The selling dealer tells me he'll get the information from the original owner for me to speak with also. Here are a couple photos. Very clean truck and shows honest. I'm wanting four door for the expanding family and a standard cab pickup is just too small any longer. Length of course does not concern me. Any advice or wisdom to share? Thanks, Not the "showiest" damned thing, but if proven reliable it will fit the need as I need a work truck. 3 Quote Plodding along with no job nor practical application for my existence, but still trying to fix what's broke.
