I just bought a 2012 f-250 with 60k miles a few days ago and just curious if theres anything I should know or should watch out for. this is my first diesel truck.

Dad has a 2015 and it's a damn impressive truck. Kyle has a 15 also with exhaust and tune and it's downright retarded.

I recently bought a 2005 F250 with the 6.0. Been tinkering with HP Tuners on the 6.0 trucks a little. My brother's F350 responded with some tire spinning shifts and rolling smoke.

I don't have any plans to change the truck at all. Im afraid to do to much and end up creating more problems than good from it.

I heard on the Internet that the turbo (turbos?) will explode on the 11-12's. Bad bearings or wheels or something. They say just to swap a 13+ turbo and it's good to go.

Just drive it and tune out anybody on the internet. They are beast of trucks. I have had a 2011 6.7 and now my 15'. Both with mods. Think the only problem out of either is a blown fuse LOL

Neil is correct, SOME had turbo issues early on, like 2011 mainly but not a common issue so don't sweat it.

I traded it in at Lynn Layton Ford last week, it had 161k miles on it and I was ready for something different. it had been a good truck for me.

good to hear. ive found that the only post on the internet are when people have problems! ive waited until I found a truck I felt comfortable with and not abused. ill roll grampa style without touching anything but tint and the cleaning products!

well we done a fund raiser for a family that don't exist and was able to come up with just enough money to put down on it and get some beer, the only catch is I have to share with everyone in the trailer park!

How many miles on the 6.7? is it still warrantied? If not, ditch the DEF shit and put chip/exhaust on it. I probably avg a solid 3-4mpg better, at these fuel prices its not a big deal. At $4/gallon it paid for itself rather quickly :lol:

Shopping for wheel/tire combos for mine as we speak
