2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty XL 4dr SuperCab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
Due to the extra purchase cost I got the gas v8. The diesel is needed for heavy pulling, but the gas V8 will do, just slower. Very happy with the truck overall though it did stall out completely one time for no reason and no code was recorded. The built in trailer brake system is a must for towing, but it does hold up the RPM's at times a bit too long and when coasting it will kick up and you have to tap the gas to get it to shift. But great overall. I can't even feel our 4 horse trailer behind it. The interior is very comfortable and large. The engine is thirsty. 12 MPG normally and 9 MPG towing. Fit and finish all are very good.
Built in trailer brake system.
Gas mileage in this day and age should be better and fine tune the trailer system and transmission linkup. Should work smoother with the gas engine.
