    I'd ask for a new truck. That's ridiculous at 750 miles and already in the shop.

    please don't get me started. My 05 6.0 psd got bought back @ 28,000 miles.
    The 03 d-max with the ez- vee is running strong with 80,000 miles. No frame issues. Each truck has its pros and cons. I really believe some of it has to do with the driver and how you treat the equiptment. I bet i could bust the frame on a ford if i really tried. I bet you could smoke an allison trans if you tried.

    yea i hope not either. they have been pretty solid though from what i have heard so far and from the tests they ran with them. the guy i sub for now has two 6.4's (08 F350 had since last year and 08 F550 just purchased) and a 6.0 he just sold and all ran/run flawless. he did have trouble though with there 04 6.0 that was bought back by ford. time will tell though, i do know they are harsh on fuel with the new emissions nonsense on them .:gunsfiring:
