Too many bugs to be worked out and the 6.8 is a wonderful, proven workhorse of an engine. It had some design bugs in its early years but they’re all fixed now. Just my opinion, of course.
I'm all about "tried and true" as well. It took Ford nearly 30 years to perfect the diesel, starting with the original International Harvester, non-turbo model. It originally was the 390 gas engine block made into a diesel. That's why it was so well knows as the "Power Joke". Let them work out the bugs or you'll be eating bugs.
