Yeah, I see that! Guess they sold their IDI's... I got mine in March of 2008. They really are dependable trucks, built back in the day when Ford cared more about longevity...

I do my own wrenching because there aren't any more mechanics to be found who knows these trucks... They either died or retired... I know of two from Oilburners that have left us... It's a shame all of that vast knowledge is gone...

Wonder why I can't see my sig?

Ok, you got me! I always thought that once you go diesel, there was no going back...

On the other hand, I'm hearing alot of complaints about the 6.0, the 6.4 and even the 6.7, so I couldn't blame you there.

i would not own a 6.oh no or a 6.4 if it was free. the 6.7 on the other hand is a really good platform, but way too expensive for my blood.
i paid $21,000 for the gas job with 92k miles. the same truck with diesel would have been at least $45,000.
i really was not looking for another truck, but the 02 was starting to show it's age with 194,000 on it, and the price was rite on the 14.
the fact i also just had knee replacement and was having back problems sealed the deal, as the 14 rides like a car to the 02's riding like a tank .

I still have two IDI , a 90 4x4 bought a couple of years ago that has turned out to be a fairly good truck , and a 93 factory turbo dually that I have used for my heavy hauler for my equipment trailer hauling my 15k Genie man lift. Have had it since 06. Had to build a wide ratio transmission for it to make it a good hauler.

Also have a E-99 PSD 4x4 dually that I really like.

He told me one more like the last one, and I would be joining graywolf.
Not that I care, the site is failing miserably anyway.

Maybe I should post it, but then I would have to end my boycott of that place
