Thanks guys. The 7.3 is definitely a BEAST! Never know your towing.

Pretty sure he was referring to the fact that Ford doesn't produce then anymore.

The International 7.3 responds well to mods, the new ford diesel is almost twice as powerful. I loved my 7.3, but the new diesels are way more powerful and not nearly as loud. Going through drive throughs i would have to shut it down to order.

Great truck for pulling a great boat though!

Bought a new to me x45... My old Tundra would pull her but for "safety" reasons, my wife agreed I needed a new truck too. 2015 GMC 2500HD with duramax
