    We have two of these trucks at work that are 08 models with diesels with less than 1000 miles on them. In the past two days both of these trucks have been towed to dealership. The trucks loose power then die. Today, our tech overheard that there are having problems with these fuel pumps. I don't know if there has been a recall yet but I'm sure there will be one soon.

    I've had a similar problem on my F550, they thought it was the fuel tank delaminating, which was common but turned out to be fuel filters......

    I have yet to have the air filter get filled with snow/ice.

    The HFCM was replaced last month.
