Real man's truck

my adult life and have had three
Fords. So far the F-250, 7.3L, Lariat
has been the best of the lot when it
comes to perfomance, comfort, ride,
style and just plain mojo. It looks

(diesel) mileage. My last truck, an F-
150 supercab, gas, ran for almost
235,000 miles before I sold it so it
remains to be seen if the F-250 is that
durable and reliable. We will see if

The A/C needs more btu's, down south it
is just not enough for the hot days.
