After all the insurance is delt with if it does not get found I am looking for suggestions on a new truck, I have it down to a new 2011 ford 6.7,2010 6.4 ford or a dodge diesel of some kind, but really leaning towards the new fords as I hear the motors are great. Any advice or experinces would be great thanks.
Sorry to hear about the loss.
For, when it comes to looking for a new truck I would be weary of the 6.4 litre fords. The 08s were having endless amount of issues with every mechanical part accept for the tranny. Quite a few of the 2010s have been blowing clouds of white smoke, because of some egr design flaw. Besides that, I haven't heard about much of the 010s having any other issues.
When it comes to the new 2011s I haven't been hearing too much issues with them so far, though most of the guys only have 30 000km on them and that would probably be too early to tell if they were mechanically reliable or not. There has also been a few cases now where the 6.7s would be moving along then they would suddenly lose a great amount of power and almost stall, then run fine again the next minute.
There was also an issue with the transmission surging on some of them. Some of them also had a leaking oil pan gasket that I believe they have fixed now.
Here's a link to the forum I got a great deal of the info from. http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/
