New 550, Weak points

We got a new 550 6.4 and I was wondering what we need to keep an eye on? We're not gonna tune it or delete anything. Strictly a farm truck with a service bed and crane on it. I was told about Radiators going bad in these trucks. Well inform me.

yes watch the radiator, get the venturi t installed, and be careful driving through tall grass (the dpf gets hot)

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

its just a little thing that goes on the degas bottle to relieve pressure on the radiator so that you don't have radiator problems. You can get them done through ford for free as they released a tsb for it a while back. if you look at your degas bottle and one of the 2 nipples is plugged off and the other has a T in it then you already have it.
