Ask Ford.. I just replaced them. I honestly have no idea why they designed them like this.
I do, some dipshit engineer was thinking, "how can we screw with people today, Hey I got it, lets bury the radiator so the entire front has to come off, and then let use two thermostats, and Hey Joe, you still have them funky hoses, cool, lets throw them in the too"
Have you worked on one of these newer trucks? The radiator hoses have a circle clip and o-rings instead of hose clamps. I'll post pictures of them tomorrow. It's crazy.
I should have bought a new intercooler too but it's pretty easy to swap out so I'll get one in a few months.
mine so new the only things I have changed so far are oil and fuel filter(s)
there is frame fuel filter and a engine fuel filter ( in a diesel ) they are stupid easy to change, you just have to remember to pressurize the system before you start the engine
Yep I've got to do them too when I get to that point. Doing preventive maintenance on the cooling system since it's one of the 6.4's problem areas. I've got a cooling system filter I'll be adding.
I'm going to Yellowstone & Rushmore & then Nebraska in Oct with my sister & BIL so I'm trying to get everything ready.
IDK how much time you have, but you could do Rushmore and Custer State Park in one day.
another really cool place that few know about is the Calvin Coolidge Fire Tower right off rt-87.
We did not do the Needles highway, thats going to be next year, we hope
One is a bypass t-stat, it opens earlier than the other and allows the coolant to cycle through the engine to allow for faster warm ups, the other opens up flow through the radiator....Ask Ford.. I just replaced them. I honestly have no idea why they designed them like this.

OK I'd always wondered what they were for. I put stock Motorcraft t-stats in it. There are aftermarket ones that have different temps but I figured stock was OK.
hope much did that misimoto run you. i haven’t bought one yet. but i know i’ll need to. last i saw they were $850. but that was Alaska prices pre-plandemic
