2009 Ford F-350 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
Replaced a 1999 Superduty with this one - a great choice! Highly pleased with the V-10 and 4.10 diff to tow my big gooseneck horse trailer. Gets much better mileage than the '99 it replaced, and pulls with authority. Love the new mirrors, Sync, and Tow Command - installed the ball hitch in the bed, hooked up the trailer, and pulled away. It looks bigger than it drives (good thing), and it gets a lot of positive comments from the folks who own horses and trailers. Ford trucks rule in horse country.
Powerful V-10 engine, Tow/haul mode of transmission, Sync, mirrors, and the quiet ride. If you don't put more than 12K miles/yr, this is the right engine for this workhorse of a truck.
Put the rear view camera somewhere other than the tailgate - I can't use it to hook up the gooseneck! More power for the base engine - tried the 5.4L V-8 and found it was totally inadequate for a work vehicle like this.
