Hows she holden up?

How many 6.4s are still running around on here? I've heard so many horror stories about theses engines, kinda been wondering if I should have bought one.

I'm sure Ryan will comment on his. I know a few guys with them with them that have never had any issues. People are quick to whine and post it across the internet whereas the people that are happy rarely say anything.

Look at the 6.0..I have one...no issues apart from a FICM. A good friend has one, a 2003 with 250k miles on it...FICM, set of injectors.

When I had my C7 Cat, the HEUI pump was (according to the net) likely to explode daily.

Drive the truck and enjoy it Mike!

Are you a O/O?
I love it, and drive it all the time, taken many trips in it, just been scared I have a 20K + time bomb sitting in my shed.

I don't Mike, not a 6.4...I have a 6.0.

Two good friends have the 6.4's.

If you are that worried, sell it and get a Dodge Eco Diesel.





Sorry...couldn't help myself!

100k on mine, only issue I ever had was the radiator 3 times. 2 were warranty, the first was believed to be from the sticking t-stat and the redesigned t-stat housing. The second and third were from flex I guess. I installed a Mishimoto in it the last time and got Vince's fix for the separation, while I couldn't cut the pin off the new radiator, (lifetime warranty) I removed the locating shim. I change my fuel filters every 10K and oil and filter every 5K religiously. I also do not let it idle if I can help it.

When Dodge and GM build something that will compete with the F450, we'll talk.
