    I'd have to agree. What a hassle. And I'm a Ford guy. I'll stick to the gas engines for now.

    For big or major repairs, I could see that beeing okay. You wouldnt need to lift it for most repairs. But I put a 3 inch body lift on my chevy, and the engine sits 3" lower than the body know, and it makes it a pain working on many things.

    I bought an 08 f250 at the end of the summer. I have owned Ford trucks with nothing but diesels for the last 20 years and have been satisfied. When I learned that working on the 6.4L required pulling the cab I didn't want any part of that. I went with the gas motor.
    The potential for problems was not worth it for my situation.

    Just think when the trucks get rusty. But I'm sure all the bolts have plenty of antiseize on them from the factory:rolleyes: You guys better get under your trucks now and put Fluid Flim or something on those cab mounts and whatever else
