Bought this truck new for pulling a 31 ft. camper and have loved every mile. Pulling power is excellent and gets decent MPG for a large crew cab. I have had the truck for 5 years and no issues. I had one recall but that was for the tires. I now have 43,000 miles on it and do not plan on getting rid of it any time soon. Did I tell you the pulling power is amazing!
It was time to trade out of my 92 F250. It gave me good service for 18 Years. This new one is my third truck. If this one gives me as good of service as the previous two fords, I will be happy. This is my first diesel. I pull a 30 foot 5th wheel. Looking forward to the power of the diesel. So far I love the truck. The ride and comfort inside are great. Still learning how to use all the conveniences. The color (Red) with the chrome package is a real eye pleaser. It has most of the bells and whistles. I love the tailgate step and folding mirrors. Makes it easy to get int he garage. Was worried it would not fit but it does. I could not ask for more at this time.
This is one very srong pulling truck. nice ride,looks great,Love that turbo feel and sound. Make's almost any pulling job seem like it isnt even there. I average 17.0 mpg 65mph. 10,000 mile's on it now.
This 6.4L diesel F-250 is my fourth Ford deisel ( 2 - 7.3L's and one 6.0L ) and it seems to be the best engine design yet - had a slight fuel problem with the 6.0L. The 6.4L has plenty of power and the truck rides extremely well. Mileage is lousy, only 13 - 14 mpg( 4WD hurts )but the trade off in power and safety and comfort are worth it. Especially like the navigation system, Sync, power folding mirrors, and interior roominess. Wife loves the heated leather seats. The tailgate step is great as are the 6" cab steps in the chrome pkge. I would HIGHLY recommend getting the electic auxillary cab heater ( one of the only options I passed up ), because of the increased cooling system capacity. HAPPY
