What does a guy have to know about these trucks Im picking one up today?
Drive hard and make it work, the 6.7 and the dpf don't like easy driving, another words have a heavy foot on the go pedal. Must keep the exhaust hot to keep the dpf clean. That doesn't mean you can't do city driving, stop-n-go, but don't do it all the time. I am at 85,000 miles on my 07 and no problems except a water pump leak.
Oh yea, most people will recomend to leave the EB on even when not towing. Good Luck
