Here's what I found out about Ford's competition diesel engines:

Chevy Duramax-
-Fuel starvation issues
-faulty water pumps
-overheating issues
-Injector issues including the harness
-glow plug failures
-Aluminum cylinder heads vs cast irn block
-Turbo oil injection problems
-Allison tranny goes into "Limp" mode
-DEF freezing in cold climates

Here are issues with the Dodge Cummins:
-DEF failures, many but most with faulty sensors which shuts down the engine
-O2 sensor failures
-Turbo failures
-Drive train issues, many
-Suspension issues
-Transmission problems, many
-Beware of buying any used Dodge Cummins from 2001,2003, 2006, 2007,2010

2008 F-250 4X4 Lariat V-10
2002 Airstream Classic 30' w/SO #2074
2007 Kubota 900 RTV
1996 Ford Bronco
