I'm looking to trade my 2013 Big Horn with a 5.7L for a 2011 2500 Lariet LWB with the Cummins diesel that only has 16000 miles on it. I plan on using it to tow a fifth wheel. Anything I should be aware of in the diesel rig? Thanks,Hammer

I know a few folks with the 6 speed manual that had to upgrade their clutches. Might add some sort of a lift pump to take some load off the fuel injection pump. Remove any crap in or on the exhaust that you dare, hehe. Great motor!

you shouldn't have any problems with it. 16,000 miles is nothing. I tow trailer with my truck frequently. replaced stock clutch at 140,000.

*Laramie... Lariat is ford. Regardless.. I bought my 08 6.7 used with 16k miles and around 30K I got fed up with horrific fuel mileage and dpf issues, did a full delete with H&S Mini Maxx and holy hell what a different truck it was. Almost 20mpg hand calculated, longer oil change intervals.. They're excellent motors once you take the EPA shit off..
