Market value (trade in):

2006 F-350 Super Cab, 2 wd, 6.0, 70,000 miles

In good condition:

$17,500

kbb.com

Based on above valuation formula, if it had mods or had major repairs, it should sell for between $2,500 to $7,500


Want a bargain?

2006 E-350 Extended Van, 2wd, 6.0, 70,000 miles,

In good condition:

$10,925


Except you are more likely to pay more based on the above valuation formula if you find a E van that has not been modded and have a clean OASIS report.

Since you say this is the case, you should be able to find tons of credible links to all of these failed engines. Please do.


Well, I am certain there are a TON of failed Cummins 5.9's in Rams.

After all, in the millio or so that were sold, I'm sure at least two had problems. A Cummins ISB is about 1000lbs. Therefore, at least one ton of Cummins engines failed!

I hope you guys don't think I dislike the cummins or think I am saying its unreliable but there are plenty of known problems that cummins has had in the past. That actually does remind me that a friend of mine had a Cummins 8.9 ISL in his Monaco motorhome that threw a rod. Took it in for warranty and Cummins told him MANY of the ISLs had rod problems. Usually within the first 50,000 miles. I will see if I can find a link for that as well just so its verified that the recall exists....

Here are some links if that makes you happy.

In electronics terms, you are just going to cause him to go non linear.




I was tempted to post my high performance and money saving RV mod for when I have the site next door to him...

But it is already on another thread.

Something about local black water dumping.

What links when they are infallible like people who know all causes and cures?

Talking about that, can you cure thyself?

I keep reading your dribble and it's exhausting. I even checked out your other posts in other threads. Are you snowed in or something? Geez...you need push back on that keyboard and have a sip of Crown, shovel snow, go curling, take up needle point and try not to come on too strong here.

BTW, my post is meant to be light hearted.

At least 2 of them worked for me when I copied the text onto the browser, the rest can be found by googling.

Got to be able to do the equivalent of holding a wrench to do that.

What happens when you get people talking theory and don't ever wrench, so to speak, on the internet.
