Searching for a new truck I have a few quick q's though

How much power are the stock auto and manual transmissions good to?

How is everybody liking the 6.7 now?

What should I look for that may be wrong with these trucks?

They are great trucks in stock form you can run a tuner on them as long as you dont go out and thrash on it the tranny or clutch will hold. They perform even better with the dpf deleted on them. As far as things to look for just the basic you would look for on any other new or used truck.

I am really happy with my truck thus far. Granted I don't have enough time on it to know about issues. But it sure does drive like a dream. With the Standard trans, I'm pulling about 16-17mpg mixed city/highway with all emissions systems intact, which is about the same as my 24v. And I have done as well as 19 on the freeway. So mileage doesn't seem to suffer, and I'm sure with the deletes it'd be even better.
