    I figured since everyone is showing pics of their tow rigs, I would show my score :D Here it is, 01 Ford, 7.3, 4X4, 64,000 miles, auto, etc. Now its time for a trialer...there is always something I need :rolleyes:

    I do that every time I get into it. We do a bunch of work for the Ford dealership here and everytime we get a 6.0 in I cringe when it starts...my boss had one (6.0) and it was in the shop for 3 weeks out of the first month he owned it. :whistle:

    Ours has 12,000 miles on it. It's now on it's second turbo, third set of glow plugs, and third EGR valve, second cam position sensor, and a couple of new injectors. Everybody keeps saying that for every one bad one there are millions of good ones...I must just be lucky. :D Anyways, the rest of the vehicle is excellent and I'm sure it'll do great things. Very sharp looking truck. :thumb:

    When the 6.0 runs right it is AWSOME but it will take some time to get anywhere as reliable as the Cummins.
