2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab XLT 4dr SuperCab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I own a 2008 F250 turbo diesel Ford. It is the worst truck that Ford has ever made. I am on my third motor, with only 30,000 miles. That's right 30k miles. absolute garbage motor. The 1st motor blew up at 15 K. the 2nd went at 20 K .The 3rd at 29K. I obviously don't drive this truck hard or a lot; so there is no reason for motor failures. It has so many repair items documented by Carfax that I can't sell it without a huge loss of money. Stay away from the 6.4 turbo diesel. Ford mechanics admit that it is junk(off the record of course) I finally sold it and took a 10k loss. Good riddance

I purchased my 2008 ford Super duty in 2007, One of the first. I now have 218,000 on the 5.4 gas engine. Only 1 set of brakes. New alternator at 100,000 mls. I am a stone mason and work my truck hard. Around 120,000 mls the truck made a engine noise when I started it, almost 100,000 mls later I have the same noise. No change, I always change my oil, I love my truck, Would never buy anything but a ford truck period!

I bought this vehicle used in 2009 with 32,000 miles in the XLT trim. The vehicle had a bad front end and lousey fuel mileage. I knew this when I purchased the vehicle. I have invested in a chip to improve fuel mileage along with a banks air filter and magpro exhaust system which improved fuel mileage from 12 to 18/20 mph. Different tires also helped improve fuel mileage. I installed heavy duty air shocks and replaced the front springs with heaover springs and stabilizer bar to the front end. I also installed side step bars, tool box, backup camera, fog lights and trailer brake and other items. This was cheaper than buying a more expensive vehicle from the dealer
The desial 6.4 liter motor is great and pulls my 14 foot covered trailer like it is not there. It has been driven a cross the country twice. This will be the last truck I buy- five to date.
Utilize some of the upgrades I used to improve vehicle fuel mileage and front end stability.

I put a Bank's toaner on it to improve fuel mileage and the dealership blames everything that goes wrong on the tuner. I had to take it off. With the tuner I got 21+ mpg hwy, 18mpg in town. Without tuner 12.5 Hwy., 8.5 around town. I do not understand why ford won't offer something that can improve the mpg.
Teh The towing of anything
Partnership with Bank's Power. Then you could not mention cumming's or Duramax in the same paragraph with FORD.
