    They have been having problems with the newer powerstokes. Boat loads of problems. I would have a better chance tho putting a ford motor in my ford truck rather then a dodge motor in my ford truck.

    Besides, put the motor or a newer version of it back in it, your vehicle will be a lot more stable when you go through your upgrades.
    just because a vehicle or engine is worth more doesnt mean it is better quality. Lol, just thought id say that. Don't mean to sound harsh or anything or to start an argument.

    They are having problems with the 7.3's aswell. My best buddies dad got a 08 7.3 powerstoke. It caught onfire randomly at McDonalds. Also its much harder to fix problems with the new powerstrokes. I have talked to several machine shops, and im good friends with afew diesel experts. They all said that they hatteee working on the new powerstokes. They suggested a 8.3 cummins but they also said that putting a 99 7.3L in my truck wouldn't be a bad idea. From 94-2002 was the best year for powerstokes. 2003 and up they have had major problems.

    Did I miss you saying your truck was all ready a diesel? I think I had the money I would have made the jeep into a diesel. I really want a diesel truck.

    You may also want to think about carefully about the time and costs associated with doing an engine swap. I always have to tease my BF about my engine swap, he said he would have it done in a weekend, well it ended up taking two months all together. Now he is in the process of switching out his wrangler from the 4 banger to the straight six and it's going on about two months now too for that project. You may be better off getting a newer truck with a better engine in it.

    Yes we decided we are getting a new truck instead of replacing the engine.

    We are getting a 350 or a 450. I love me some Fords. I like the cummins motor but I hate the dodge bodies. They rust too easily. And chevy.......i don't like chevy. Costs way to much to fix anything on a chevy and to do any ammount of work on it. But I have to wait till we sell the house before I can even begin to look at trucks.

    So Ford? I don't like the 150 Ford but the 250s and up are OK. Chevy is awesome. Lil expensive, but you are buying the quality, IMO. Dodge is crap. Sorry to any Dodge lovers but I simply can't stand them.
