One thing for sure is.......F-150 ecoboosts are generally not a good choice in a large fleet application. Mainly because driver's like and enjoy the power and typically will rod the **** out of them. They don't care about the company's trucks and they will spin the tires frequently and you will be repairing the re-diff on a regular basis. Because of the way they drive them you really don't see fuel economy any better than the old 4.6 or 5.4 either (although they are capable of really good economy).
You're better off with less power in a fleet truck!
your right chris, you might be better off with the 3.7L engine to get job done..i can tell you if you drive the EB hard it sucks gas big time and you got no better gas mileage than a SD. Sorry to hear of mech issues with your fleet. I hope Ford stands behind its product and helps you with at least the parts. Makes you wish Ford offered a 150k warranty but at your failures they would be belly up..hope your able to get resolution..
