Mine is a 2011 F350 dually diesel long bed. Have had zero engine issues in 42,000+ miles. Only issue was a transmission shifting issue that had a service bulletin on and was fixed with no problems.....after I convinced the dealer that it was built in the window of the bulletin.

I was a Die-Hard powerstroke man (5 - 7.3 and 1 - 6.0) until I got my first cummins. Frankly with your 5.9 at only 121K miles I would have to ask - "Why would you want to commit to a $45k+ new truck" when you already have the best rig on the road? BTW you will also probably miss having that Mega Cab space also. And you will not find a more economical truck referring to MPG than the 5.9 cummins motors!
Save the money and keep the 06 dodge - then buy a fun sports car for you and your wife to enjoy for a lot less than a new truck! My 2 cents for what that's worth.

I have a 2013 Lariat, SB, Crew. Sorry, only about 6K miles, all pulling my 5'r. The only problem I have had is a faulty radiator cap. Manifested itself the day I picked up my 5'r, YES THAT DAY. Overheated coming up from 2000 ft to 5000 ft. (hot day as well in Arizona) Stopped to change drivers and all the coolant was on the ground. I only had 750 miles on the truck. FORD had me towed along with the 5r as one unit to my dealer. Seems the radiator cap would not hold the pressure. Cost FORD a pretty penny for a $35.00 part. No problems whatsoever since than but not many miles either. I did purchased an extended warranty. I figured $2300.00 was good for sleeping at night for a 4 year 84,000 mile warranty extension. Figured if anything really ever went wrong I couldn't get FORD to touch it for less than a grand.

The reasoning behind this is my wife's truck is what i like to call a mid life crisis for her(2010 gmc 2500 crew that was upfitted new 6" lift 35 inch tires 20" wheels fender flares push bar ect.) It gets 11 mpg is hard to keep clean since u can't run it through a car wash and is basically a lawn ornimant since it is barley driven so plan is to trade her truck for ford keep caravan we have sell my truck pay off bills and buy a beater car that gets good gas mileage for back and forth to work.

I work for a heavy equip rental and sales company. I have both the 6.7 liter cummins and the 6.7 liter ford. We have not had a minutes trouble with either. We have high mileage over 100k already. Only real difference we see is the ford has better acceleration with equal load and the ford is quieter. The aisin trans in all of the dodges we have has a shudder when taking off, have taken them back to the dealer and they say there is nothing wrong. They are all still running. We run our trucks at 18,500 to 20,000 lbs so they are not being babied.

we have a total of 5 new 6.7 fords in my immediate familys tow fleet now...all the way from a first run 2011 {had to have tranny re programed early on but has been flawless since) up to a new f450...we ALL have daily drivers (mine is an 07 bmw 325i) but the trucks get driven 60-70% of the time because well all just like to drive em!! LOL.. we all tow anywhwere from 1000-2500 miles a year and mine is actually the lightest trailer (9klb loaded travel trailer) and the most modified truck....no other problems for any of us, except an alignment issue after i lifted mine....

funny thing is my bro in law kept his beloved dodge, and my father his denali hd.......but come time to slap on trailers and do the deed its the ford everytime.......i think we all kinda agree that out of all our previous tow vehicles and all things considered we get a better experience and towing satisfaction from the ford....mine is NOT a farm truck...i consider it a LUXURY tow pig...

but i digress....as to longevity who knows...ive seen a few hit the lot with 80+k and running fine....this is by leaps and bounds fords best diesel effort in sometime (if EVER)...sure the 6.0s could be built and made into beasts....

im the youngest of my family with the 6.7 (38) and none of us want to BUILD a bulletproof truck, or have to worry about things breaking ....diligent maintenance is priority and expected.....so far so good...our first ford was purchased in oct of 2010 and has been the benchmark of what we all expect...it tows a 12k ish 5er.....and serves as daily driver too....

in all honesty i have beat on mine a little....it is tuned but not deleted....its been to the track for giggles n just to see how slow it was...LOL.its lifted with 35s and gets taken off road fairly often carries heavy junk in the bed and tows about 2000 miles a year with the travel trailer.....it also is daily driven, many times under 10 miles one way....will it make it to 200k? who knows? time will tell and if it cannot then i will look for something else if and when that time comes....till then ive had mine over 2 yrs and its good as new save for a few dings and doors of normal truck life......remote start , heated seats, rear entertainment system.....this truck was not built to be a work truck....its like a bmw appointed tank.....and i love it ....

Thanks for all the responses we found a truck we both liked kodiak brown f-350 platinum but the numbers are way to far off for it to benefit us like i hoped it would. So it looks like my wife will keep her toy and I guess i will be aiming for the million mile club. Thanks again.
