"Bought this truck from a friend as the 3rd owner with 190K miles. It came to me well maintained and in good condition. I was used as a daily driver and hauler for a restaurant business. Couldn't be happier in the 3 years I've had it. It runs strong and provide good highway mileage. The city mileage is equal to my wife's Lexus GS. Has a huge crew cab for carrying people and the full size bed is a must. The 7.3 is a bit louder than the newer Fords, but it doesn't have any of the issues and is nearly bullet proof. A good looking, strong running vehicle that I expect to put another 200K miles on."
Cons: "can't keep it running lots of engine problems"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"BUT what a nightmare of a vehicle as far as transmission and engine problems why do you think an eleven year old truck has such low mileage. Because it's has SAT broke down most of the time we have owned it. It towed great handled great when it ran it was great but we had problems from the start of buying it new off the lot. Nightmare!"
"Bought this truck from an older man, who had ordered it out from the factory. Hadn't done any research on the V10 and did not know they were gas guzzlers. We got a very nice surprise in that this one gets approx. 16 mpg. around town and 20 mpg on HWY. We have come to the conclusion this is so, because the original owner used AMSOIL in it from day one. ?
Anyway, it has been a fabulous rig for us and most of the miles are HWY."
Pros: "Durability, will pull two dodges, chevy up a hill"
Cons: "Gas Mileage is low 12 MPG average for me"

"Just like the others Gas Mileage is the only problem I have had with this truck. I have never had to replace one part on it by a breakdown.
I have done about 2 k worth of extra Maintenance every 4 years and just spent 15 k loading it with extras like Mechanical Running Boards, Leather, Headers Dual Exhaust, ARE MX Topper w/ Hatch Back Dual Door, Front and Rear Ranch Hand legend bumpers, New high Performance Shocks. I am a contractor and I have owned trucks for more than 30 years this is the best truck ever! I have rescued many Dodge owners and pulled them and the trailer they were hauling up hills they could not make it up."
"Ford knows there is a problem with the 6.0 diesel engine. Ford rep told me all the problems/repairs that I have had with this truck. Suggested I put it up for sale on internet because none of the dealers will give you anything for it on trade-in! Why can't I get Ford to recall or fix the truck at their cost. Have put $27,500.00 into the repairs since Sept. 2011. Still not running right. Finally going to get rid of truck!"
