I also had reliability issues with it. The only thing I will miss about the ford is my heated seats and back up sensors. Otherwise this chevy wins hands down.
What year F-250 did you have and what diesel engine?

I had a 5.7 hemi it was a decent truck but I wasn't impressed with the power or the handling while towing.

08 Sequoia. Traded in our 07 Ford Edge specifically to tow a damper that we didn't have at the time....call it planning for the future.

09 f250 w/ 6.4 smoked like a chimney during regent (never could find a reason or solution), tranny jumping at times, high pitch whine at times when turned on and at low speeds, vibration thru gas pedal when towing sometimes, driving at highway speed I would have a sudden brief loss of power. None of these intermittent issues could ever be found or replicated by dealership, no codes. They did replace two batteries and a rear axle seal for me last month. I finally had enough. It towed my tt like it wasn't even there though.


Autorot8, nice looking ram. We almost bought a Cummins but the price wasn't right.

Did you drive a 6.7 at all? I never did hear a lot of good about the 6.0 or 6.4 but I do love my 6.7 it has been a great truck. I just hope that it will have the longevity of the 7.3.

No, I know too many on rv.net and FTE that have had major issues with the 6.7 and ford trying to Welch on the warranty. But let's let this thread get back on track with pics.
