Whats the name of the Dealer? The odds of one dealer seeing two engines have a catastrophic failure like that are not impossible , but rare ........but maybe its a huge dealership that sells several thousand trucks a year?:popcorn:

Thank you sir.:thumbsup

I called the dealer 231-796-2651 and confirmed. He said one has 4-5k and the other around 20k on it. He said both were a first for them.

Engine

the rod had to of come out like a rocket !
what is that, a $10k motor replacement ?

Not even close

we checked on this about a year ago
I think a bare long block that has no turbo or accessories on it was 17k or so at the dealers cost.
