Its a chevy so I'm positive its good. But I got a 2014 lifted with 35" s and average 12 miles to the gallon with a 5.3 so it can't be to great on fuel!!

Informal poll. Guess everyone scrapped them before 100k which if really bad for ford trying to build a diesel motor without advice. oops 2 motors the 6.4 has less than great results too. Powerstoke our customers and watch them run?

I got a 6.0 powerstroke. It's only good because I did away with all the epa crap and fixed all the other stuff. It's been to Alaska twice pulling big loads everytime.

My sister had one in 2wd. Got 18 mpg hwy the time I drove it, hand calculated. 4wd could throw that out the window though, especially with leveling kit and tires/ lift and 35s. Do yourself a favor and leave it stock as possible for your needs. Every time I buy tires I get a little closer to stock and loosen my torsion bars and cut down my rear blocks on the band saw. Everyone knows that series of engines holds up well so I don't think you can go wrong there. Oh yeah, keep your foot out of it. That's the source of bad mileage for me in my LBZ.
