2009 Ford F-350 Super Duty Regular Cab XL 2dr Regular Cab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
This F-350 is the second F-series new truck i have purchased. There was a Toyota Tundra in between that I should have left @ the dealership. Ford means quality in the F series, engineered by people that know trucks. I was so glad to get back into a Ford after that Tundra. The only down side to the F-350 is it is a little underpowered. You must use the tow/haul mode on steep hills and w/loads. I have had two 3800# loads in the bed, traveled 50 miles home up a long, steep mountain grade, slowing a bit but turning, braking and general handling was superior. I have owned this truck almost one year now and always look forward to driving it. What a blessing it is
Always an improvement could be better gas mileage. It gets about 14 MPG by the way. That's mostly freeway and some city driving. Am finding mileage gets better as more engine miles are put on the vehicle. The standard AM/FM radio was replaced after purchase.
