RE: Thoughts on this Truck

As we look at FW's - we are simultaneously looking for a truck. I have been focusing on 2015-2019 F350 6.7 l Diesel, under 100k miles and under $39k. While this truck is about 4 hours away, the price seems pretty good for this low mileage, one owner and no accidents. I'd love some input. I plan on heading that way this weekend to take a look. I have been having a hard time finding these closer to home and either the price is right but miles are high, or vice versa. link Based on the pictures I think it would be worth your time to take a closer look in person.

RE: 2020 F250XL 6.2 V8

I'm not against higher RPM's or even the noise from a gasser. I'm more pro diesel because I want a relaxing tow with less input from me, the driver. A gasser requires more input, that means pressing a little harder on the accelerator, letting the truck find the right gear, maintaining the right gear, down shifting as required, holding the gear as required. More effort to descend a steep grade. A gasser requires more input. Now some may consider that extra input part of the fun and I get that. Sort of like why some enjoy driving a manual transmission. Personally relaxing and enjoying the ride with little driver input is my idea of idea of a smooth trip. The diesel takes all the work (driver input) out of the equation. Some may consider me a lazy driver because I want the truck to drive itself with out input from me, to some degree you are correct. That's why I paid more for a diesel performance. I would think the new 10 speed would require less driver input since the PCM/ECM has more gears to choose from for the right situation.

RE: 2021 Ford F150 Revealed

I Now there need to work on putting max tow and max payload on the same truck so that you handle the tongue weight of the trailer. They did, it is called a F250/F350! The bad thing about that are the gas engine options if you only need to use the max payload or tow rating just a few times a year. It would suck to have to go from 17-18 mpg combined in a 3.5L Ecoboost to 12-14 mpg combined in a 7.3L all year round just to tow 10-11k a few times a year. If someone towed/hauled that amount of weight several times a year then I can see the need for a F250/350, but not for once or twice a year like many of the guys at my summer RV park do. Per Fuelly a 2019 3.5EB F150 averages 15.32 mpg, while a 2019 6.2 F250 averages 11.37. If you drive 12,000 miles a year with gas at $2.50/gal, that's a difference of $680/yr or $56/mo. If that's a deal breaker pulling a camper around may not be a very wise hobby from a financial standpoint. True, but I think I would want to be put out of my misery if I had to drive a F250 6.2L versus an 3.5 Ecoboost towing 10k or even as a daily. I like the Ecoboost for the same reason I like diesels, low end torque and plenty of it. I agree... I would much rather drive a 3.5 EB as a daily driver and towing.

I sure like this new truck and I'm glad Ford didn't go crazy with the design. Link Link 2

RE: 2020 F250XL 6.2 V8

I don't recall but I think the 6.2 can be equipped with the 10 speed transmission otherwise if going with a 6 speed I would go with the 4.30 gears for sure. I would also give a hard look at the 7.3 with the 10 speed as this will probably be a little better towing experience.

RE: Just wondering

So you're out on your boat in 5 foot seas. Why would you want to shut off your engine? With 5 foot seas I wouldn't even consider going fishing in the first place. Having said that most people who offshore fish don't turn their engines off until they get back to the dock.

RE: Used Diesel Truck Miles: How many is too many

If your looking to purchase a 1-3 year old truck you might as well purchase a new one. Dang, we are thinking alike more and more!!! Next thing you know he will be buying a RAM and be putting a B&W hitch in it. We bought a Ford Edge ST with Eco-boost 2.7L twin turbo 335HP 380 lb ft of torque today. Things happen. Chris My parents purchased their first Ford (Edge Titanium) last year. Never thought that would happen.

RE: "Auxillary" Fuel tank vs installing a new/larger tank

You may want to check out S&B fuel tanks. Read some pretty good reviews about them. S&B Tanks

RE: Ok what truck to buy ?

Just left the Dodge dealership and was told the HD's are moving to America, built alongside the half tons. Fish always seems to forget this when he bashes RAM manufacturing. That is the Ford Powerstroke diesels are made in Mexico. All vehicles more or less have parts from all over the globe. Made and assembled are not necessarily the same. But he bought a 3rd gen RAM that have been used hard and put away wet, and has never gotten over his mistake. Call it what you want but read the fine print...

RE: What's with Bio diesel?

My 2012 6.7 PSD can run 100% #2 diesel without any Bio diesel and up to 20% Bio diesel. I typically try to stay away from gas stations that sell 20% Bio diesel.

RE: Need tow vehicle - preferably under 10k Here is a link he sent me. Could it be aftermarket mods? He installed front fenders, hood, grill (insert portion is aftermarket), headlights, and rear view mirrors from a '11-'16 Super Duty and a aftermarket front bumper.

RE: Ok what truck to buy ?

One truck is "Made in USA" and the other truck is "Made in Mexico". Choose wisely...

RE: Hemi Camshaft Failure Mystery Explained

I visited a Ram dealer back in early March to look at some Jeep Wranglers and couldn't help notice that 50% of RAM HD trucks on the lot were powered by Hemi engines. I've never seen this many in HD trucks and this area is surrounded by farmers and ranchers who historically purchased diesels for the most part.

RE: First tow results

That rig looks like a jewel... Not surprised with the performance and fuel economy improvements. HEY! I beat you to the “JEWEL” comment. :B One knows a jewel when he sees a jewel. :B
