I thought you said it was a diesel.. Which would mean 7.3 liter or 6.0 liter, both V8s.

Sorry, don't mean to be a pain, but if it's the 6.0 liter V8 diesel from 2004 onwards, then there are known preventative upgrades you might consider on the next one, a ton of known problems and fixes, class action lawsuits, and a whole wealth of information about it.

I don't know any of it. But other folks will around here do, and would be happy to help out.

It's a 6.0L V8 Diesel. We are just frustrated. Looking forward to being able to actually use it. Looks like it's at least 3 weeks away which in the scheme of things isn't that far off.
