I was thinking to myself...self so many people have such a bad impression of the 6.5, so why dont we start a thread about how great ours have been?? Here goes: I love my 6.5. It has been running flawlessly for quite a while now. I had to replace a few items that I would expect too with 120k on the clock (i.e. PMD, Glow plugs, fuel shut off switch, wastegate solonoid) I drive 100+ miles a day for work w/ ~1000lbs in the bed and it loves every minute of it. It is so comfy to drive and will cruise effortlessly on the freeway all day long. I average 14+mpg at 6000ft elev. on winter fuel with a lumber rack and 4.10s (a gas motor would get me about 10-11 on a good day) My truck looks awesome and will go though any amount of snow I can throw at it. I pulled 8500lbs from CA to Denver and was able to maintain 65+mph on all but the biggest/longest grades. So that is how I feel about my 6.5 so how about you???
