  I've heard more bad about a 6.0 and would never buy one.  6.4s don't sound much better.  I've heard 6.7s could ingest injector pieces and some ceramic balls from the turbo? as well injector pump issues.   My 7.3 has been good but I'd much rather have a Cummins :) :)  Whatever I end up with needs to be work ready. I don't want issues beyond regular maintenance for a while.  There's a good looking 5500 Ram Cummins in Da UP but it's got a 9' box and I'd prefer a 10' and a 4500 Chevy Duramax Downstate but it's a 4 door cab and f550s are around.  I should hear what the insurance wants to do with mine tomorrow.  A 2001 F550 dump with considerable cancer and 247101 miles isn't worth much in their eyes I'm sure.

Hope you find a good vehicle. A couple weeks ago my sister was t boned in a newer Subaru forester by a full sized RAM pickup running a light. Luckily the Subaru saved her but was totaled and folded in half. They actually gave her over book value due to the increase in used car prices right now so check that you get extra. The big problem is she felt fine at the accident scene but 2 days later her ears filled with fluid and she lost her hearing. Got some back now but the damage is permanent and caused by her head being tossed around from the side hit.  Whiplash issues can show up several days later so take it easy for a couple days. She called right after the accident and I asked what hit her and she said it said RAM and had a big Trump flag in the back. I told her it was payback for voting for Biden and that didn't go over so well :-\

I didn't have rental/lease coverage.


I was thinking that the insurance of person at fault would pay for a rental, perhaps it does not work that way there.

That sure would be a good question to ask.

It's Michigan's No Fault Insurance Law and why attorneys need to be involved :(

  The truck's totaled but I've got parts to put it back together.  Hopefully it'll be on road for Monday.  New wheel bearing/hub assembly, brake rotor and new pads and we'll see if a new caliper is required.  After the buy back amount was subtracted from the settlement I still collect almost twice what I paid for the old gal five or six or so years back.  It'll work.
  I'm going back to the Dr. tomorrow.  Ribs aren't right.  It suxs.

The problem with ribs is that you have to breathe . That rib pain well take time, it's miserable. Reminds me of my motorcycle days. Good deal on the buy back.

Please let us know what the doctor says about those ribs. 

Because of a genetic condition called scoliosis my rib cartilage became inflamed. Doctor called it chondrites and it took my breath away, literally. Its a 10 on the pain scale, so you sure are not over reacting.

Well in the case of truck settling out with insurance that is a bit of lemonade from the lemons!

No obvious fractures on x-rays.  They're sending them for further analysis by a radiologist.   If there's no improvement in a week they'll recommend a CT scan.  I got a prescription for ibuprofen.   I've been busted up before.  Compound leg fracture etc.  It hurt.  This is a different hurt.  It suxs.

Don't be in a hurry to sign off for a quick settlement on an injury claim, talk to a good lawyer. I was hit by a drunk in 1976, my neck still gives me grief from whiplash. The guy should be nailed to the wall for packing that much behind an F-150, fortunately double towing with light vehicles is not legal on our roads.

  Got a call from the clinic and was told the radiologist believes there's a fracture in a rib.  X-rays don't always show rib damage well.
  I lost a wheel off this truck a couple winters ago, maybe three, because the tire place didn't properly torque them either time I was there in 24 hours.  Long story...  I suffered whiplash from that.  Bothered me for over a year.  No legal recourse for the injury because it's a soft tissue injury that doesn't show on an x-ray.  They did grudgingly fix the truck.

I didn't see this until now, bummer. My wreck was September 17th and chest still isn't right but it is getting better slowly, you are younger so maybe will heal faster. Good luck with it all!
