Bought a "New" truck

Came across a 2011 F250 XLT Power Stroke with 14,012 miles on it. So almost new old stock!

Traded in my 2010 Sierra 1500 SLE that had 107k on it. Came with a 6 year/100,000 mile extended warranty. They gave me a price I could not walk away from. Even though the tires on it have little use I got them to toss in 4 new Cooper Discover AT3 tires to boot!

Congrats.

Didn't that year have an issue with glow plugs? I'd check into making sure any tsb or recall on that was performed.

Nice truck that's the same truck I use at work to pull a gooseneck trailer with only differences we have a gas motor. I've been impressed with it whenever I use it I like having a long box just seems handy for when you're hauling lumber/parts.

You too? I did that prior to purchasing it.

I don't want to "dampen" your happiness with the truck as it is a GREAT truck and you will love it but I did want to mention something else. The 2011 and 2012 models had turbocharger issues... Garrett used ceramic ball bearings instead of steel in them. This was fixed in 2013 models but the turbo issues with the '11 and '12 can cause the engine to grenade if those bearings start to disintegrate.

I would make sure it does not already have any turbo issues as a new 6.7 is about $15K installed by a dealer if outside warranty. If the turbo is OK and you drive it like a human you should be OK but it will be something you will have to deal with at some point. If you hear any "whining" sound at low RPM's use that extended warranty to INSIST the turbo be replaced with the upgraded model.

Glow plugs should have been fixed under warranty as they can also grenade the engine if they break lose inside the cylinder.

These are the only issues I am aware of with the "un-tuned" 6.7 and the ones to keep a watch on with the early models. Otherwise it is a great engine and a great truck. I love my F-350 and would not trade it for anything else.

Enjoy it!
