Yes but I'm around a ton of 2008 International 3300s with MF7s with 50k miles averaging every day and they all work fine. And to whoever asked it, they use advanced EGR, not SCR. The basis is SCR costs the money for the fluid and the EGR is a simpler, no fluid required system.

Yep same powerjoke thats been trouble free since i deleted her and put an h&s in. Same powerjoke that puts down ~600whp and ~1200wtq with 2k or less in mods. Do your hw, most job 1s were the trouble makers, all the newer ones are mostly running fine.

I think there is always a consensus that if somebody has trouble with a particular truck, that everybody else has trouble with the same truck. We have about 21 vehicles with many different makes, and we have one of every diesel ford practically made. I must say aside from the tranny blowing at 15 miles on our 05 ford f550 6 liter, we have had pretty good luck with our ford diesels. We have had very few issues with the ford diesel motors aside from normal wear and tear. We went with the international because it is more truck than an f550, and we felt it is much much simpler. To look under the hood of the 6.7 liter powerstrokes is just down right sickening to even begin to work on. Not to mention getting more payload for less money for a work truck just made more sense to us.

You really do make some dumb posts. I'm around quite a few 6.4's and everyone who has one loves it with a tune and deletes. Stock their really nothing exciting and the emissions stuff sucks but as with anything there is ways around it.

I agree. I got an 2004 6.0 powerstroke. 100% stock and it has never cost me a dime. Its been a great motor. Couldnt ask for more. My buddy has a 6.4 and it has also been a good motor to him.

You always going to have haters. of every truck.

I own a 6.4 and let me tell you, she is a beast for towing all stock.Only problem I had was a leaking brake line. The problem is that people buy these trucks to go and showoff and not use them for their intended use which would be for towing ect.
Regardless congrats on the new truck

my 2004 does it all, i pull the bobcat/mini with my 150hp gearhead tune and can get 20mpg empty if I stay out of it, been that way for over 60k (at 97k now), ive had more "ford" problems then motor problems, this spring/summer shes getting freshend up with brakes/ball joints/ beds coming off painting the frame, new bed sides/cab corners etc. Ive never driven the maxxforce7, but the maxxforce 13 I had pulling doubles in my old pro star did real good on fuel (over 8 mpg) but was just gutless (but it could of also been the gearing my cheapo company had it specd for)

The one I was around was nothing but problems they were trying to get Ford to buy it back lemon law. I don't think you should have to delete and mod your truck for it to be good, for the expensive cost it should be smooth sailing from day 1

its really not fords fault, ALL the new trucks have to comply with al gore tree hugging standards, its why my 04 will be the last diesel I own, atleast for a while.

I still want to know what the empty weight is and what it is licensed for?

I am also very skeptical of the 6.4, would much rather have the 466 in a regular lo pro IH.

no it is not the same 6.4l as the pickups, the ealier maxxforce 7 was, but in 2010 they redesigned it again, it is a pretty good motor, the ones that we have sold have only had some minnor programing issues for emmisions. The guys like them. They seem to have thebugs worked out of them now.

in correct, most 4000 series have a maxxforce DT in them. the 7 are for light duty work. I had to run a performance Diag. on a 4300 with a 24' flat bed. Owner said it would not get out of its own shadow when loaded. Come to find out he was loading that truck with 16k on top of what it already weighed. The 7 is a pretty snappy motor when spec.ed correctly

Looking for this info also. Could you PM a ballpark cost of what it was as it sits. We are selling a truck now trying to decide what route to go.

We have yet to put this on a scale. I am told by the body installer it will legally hold 4.5 ton. Price wise, i beleive all said and done the truck was $58000.

Yeah, let us know what it scales. That is a painful number but it's pay to play, right?

Just to let you know, my 4x4 550 scales empty at 9700 and is tagged at 20,000...
