2008-2010 Ford 6.4l diesel

Any still towing with a '08-'10 diesel 6.4l. mine just turned 225,000 miles and all original except turbos were replaced under warranty at 14,000 miles. Has anyone had the front cover replaced and willing to share what the repair cost you? Thanks in advance.

FWIW - I pulled 3 different 5th wheels with my stock 2009 F350, SRW. They were a 25+2 Alpenlite, a 31' Augusta Alpenlite and a Wildcat Max 262RGX (about 30'). Never had any issues and have been very happy with my F350. Went to a class C MH, so just use it for the GN horse trailer and utility trailer when needed now.

Sell it while it's still running good. As you can see in my sig I'm a ford guy but, the 6.4 is the worst one to have. The 6.4 is like what a 6.0 is to a 7.3 IMHO but at least with a 6.0 it's redeemable. The 6.4 is cost prohibitive and not worth the effort to fix.

Let er rip.

Here’s a link to my expensive problem. Camp!

Start with post #34 and then in post number #41 I posted the pictures of the $5100.00 repair bill. Less than 70,000 miles on the truck. I will never buy another Ford.

So you bought the 2010 new or pre-owned?
