Ive had my LML for almost 2 years and it is SO feaking nice and refreshing driving a silent, smooth, non-smelly, reliable truck. Yes, I said reliable. It has 125k miles on it and has never given me a single issue. No DEF warnings (other than when I have to fill it), no "continue driving, cleaning exhaust filter" messages, no check engine lights.

125k miles on my LLY, I was on my third engine, 2nd set of front wheel bearings and brakes, and had misc drips here and there, etc. (ok yes, sometimes things happen and start leaking when swapping engines, but thats besides the point).

Some day if/when I have money, maybe Ill build a dedicated race/toy truck for grins. But a built/modded daily driver that I take on long trips etc? Screw that.


I don't disagree with everything your saying. So don't take this wrong.

But the truck I drive every single day is a 2005 LLY, has 145,000 miles on it, original engine including head bolts, transmission was built 90K ago, has twins, and 35% over injectors. It gets great fuel mileage, doesn't rattle, doesn't smoke unless you floor it from idle, doesn't leak a drop of anything, has never once let me down, and has a good bit more then 500RWHP.

If things are done correctly, modified trucks can be just as, and most times MORE reliable then stock trucks.

And finally, if you look at the Ford websites/forums, the guys running around with the stupid Mexico tune are actually having more problems than the 100% stock guys lol.
LMAO this is my favorite post on a forum ever, everything is so true...

They have a warranty...and the amount of people ive seen complaining about L5P emissions issues is far FAR less than the people complaining about other random glitches like shifting, ghost throttle, etc. Its too early to cry fowl on the L5P emissions system.

Should of Bought a Cummins! You can make 800hp on stock motor and get 25mpg with 35's towing 15k running 80

On a serious note though thanks for the great info Ben
Someone will end up with a backdoor code at some point just because there is to much money to be made.
I do thoroughly enjoy the L5p platform and the realiabilty it has shown so far!
Last time I took my Lly on a long trip it left me stranded in a autozone parking lot and cost be 4 hours on my trip

I bought an LMM cuz I wanted
To fool around building it.

If I got an l5p I'd have no issues keeping it stock for a while. Regardless of any trans pacific hauls

Not the mention Ben, your old truck was an LLY and black at that, you know my thoughts on the curse of the black LLY's.

I gave up and just bought a gasser to mod. Much cheaper and just as fun. Well almost... Lol...

I love driving my stock 16, it's almost silent, I can jump on it and not spew smoke and it's still got tons of power. I'm going to wait a couple years before I jump into an l5p, I've heard of changes coming and I know they are having issues with emissions sensors...

I just can't bring myself to spend the money on what new and even used diesel cost now. Now if I needed it to tow alot with well ok. What's the diesel option cost now an extra $15k?

I love my LBZ with 180k on it and over 500hp it's been problem free. I take it on every road trip we make. Our yearly trip to see family is a 14hr drive stright through. We only took the Tahoe last time because my wife was almost 9 months pregnant. It was hard for her to get in and out of my truck and the rougher ride too.
