Really like this truck. Pulled 10k pounds of hay easily and now pull a toy hauler/front deck, so 1400# on the tongue. Put on a Reese Class V Titan hitch and air bags. No sweat. Mileage could be better, and my '86 F250 6.9, while a smoker, is much quieter and it has the dimmer switch on the floor where they belong. Wish Ford still made the 7.3. Not perfect but sure beats a Chev or Fiat Ram imho!
My truck has the 7.3 diesel that
averages 16 mpg. I drive it rather hard
and have had no porblems with it. The
auto trans shifts a bit hard, though
acceptably. Build quality is good, not
up to Lexus/Acura/Infinity standards
though. Without Cummins, Dodge wouldn't
sell a single HD truck. Cummins is an
awesome engine, but resides in a piece
of junk "truck". I don't even need to
speak about Chevy, all their trucks do
is look good in ads and showrooms. Ford
is the best HD truck around, just look
at tow trucks, construction sites and
ambulances...all Ford 1 ton vehicles!
