I am a Ford guy. I have had nothing but good luck with my Fords. I drove a few trucks today and I really like the new Ford with a 6.4 but I came accross an 06 with a 6 spd. The Dodge is much cheaper to purchase. I like the fuel economy of the CTD.
I need to know if the 06 is a good truck.
Will it run on bio fuels OK? My old 7.3 would run on butter with no problems (just kidding but it did run very well on bio fuels).
I like this truck but I really think the Ford truck itself is built better. There is no way I would buy a Ford 6.0.
don't know bout the bio fuel but it is a tough truck i agree with you on the body of the ford is better but the cummins is enough for me to stay a dodge owner had a 97 f350 before this one and omg the dif in the two i will stick with the cummins from now on and id much rather the 5.9 over the 6.7 but that is just me ,good luck,

32k and no problems worth mentioning. I think it says in the owners manual that you can run Bio but only a 5 or 10% blend, not real sure on that though. This is the first diesel I've own so I can't compare to other brands but a buddy has an '07 D-max and seems to think my truck has better accel. and he's running a Banks six gun.
I stopped being brand loyal years ago. Used to be a Chevy fan. It's about bang for the buck. I think I got a pretty good deal on the truck I have now 30,500 brand new SLT package. Best Chevy would do was 31k for an extended cab gasser.
The Ford 6.0 is a very fast motor. But...they do have a Head gasket problem. The 6.0 is good with a mild tuner, but if your looking for big #'s go with the cummins. I am still running stock injectors and a stock Cp3 and I produce 506 Hp(No head studs). Granted its not the safest but studs are soon to come.
I'm happy as can be since I dumped the 06 f-350 and got the 06 Dodge. Twice the truck as the Ford, but the Ford did ride a little better. Powerstroke vs Cummins is not even a comparison. How can you compare light duty to medium duty?
