Cam issue isn’t affecting all trucks. Mechanic buddy says he thinks Fords parts supplier pulled a switch on material type to a cheaper material very common issue in the Auto biz right now. The old switcher oo to cheaper materials once your quality part gets the approval.I had a 3.0 Ecodiesel and it sucked. My first and hopefully only lemon experience and dealing with FCA was a nightmare but they finally bought it back. Other than the motor it was a pretty nice truck. Better equipped than my 2017 3.5L EB but that was my own doing, can't really compare a Laramie to an XLT.
But the 3.5L EB kind of sucks too if they can't figure out this cam phaser crap. Which they won't.
