    6.7 Super Duty Maintenence/Mods

    2012 XLT 4 door 8' bed FX4

    250k miles
    S&B intake
    EZ link
    exhaust
    silicone intercooler pipe (exploded factory one)
    rebuilt transmission (wasn't trashed, but was worn, lower stall converter installed)
    replaced plate between motor and transmission (it was cracked)
    rancho 9000 xl adjustable shocks
    new body bushings (kevlar type)
    new tie rod/drag link w/ ends
    new rancho 7000 series stabilizer
    one new injector (cyl 1)

    other than that, been pretty much trouble free. some oil lines "were replaced" early on, by a shop that "fixed these leaks" many times. turned out to be the crack in the adapter plate between motor and tranny that was filled with pookie when I found my new "trusted shop"

      I'm at about 95k on my 2016. I need to do the diffs and transmission fluid/filter.


      Are you lifted? Otherwise I'd probably just buy OEM or equivalent Napa parts for sway bar bushings

        Not lifted, but it gets quite a workout. When I'm not hauling a trailer, I'm running around with a hot tune and I'm kinda an asshole. It's got the factory "tow package" option which I think has beefed up sway bars or something along those lines. I was thinking the same as that's my go to for replacement parts. Just checking in to see if there was something even better out there before I go through the trouble.

          Whose tunes are you running?

          I do the same, street or extreme tune if I'm empty and feeling sassy and tow tune otherwise

              how do you like them?


              I have heard great things. I'm running Tyrant tunes and am happy. If they weren't so damn expensive I'd pick up some PPEI and Proven tunes to compare them to.

                They are great! Way smoother than the h&s I had.

                    I believe they stopped releasing them, but some shops bought a bunch when they found out this was the case. Ppei has promised to continue to support existing tunes

                          Someone who isn't me was able to find offroad tuning through 3rd party dealers for moving the horse trailers around the X's property

                            I just ordered a case of Mercon LV and the trans pan filter for the tranny, 2 quarts of t case fluid, and 7 quarts of gear oil for the diffs on my truck.

                              After lots of procrasturbation I did the transmission drain/fill at 97k rather than dropping the pan and filter. The filter never came and I ended up getting a refund from Amazon for it.

                              The fluid was dark but not burnt. With the 7~ quarts of new fluid it does shift a little less hard into 5th when doing a moderate acceleration from 0-45 then feathering off to 50. A few more drain/fills wouldn't hurt.

                              Also got around to the tcase and rear diff. still need to do the front.
