Gotta love what Ford has done to the F250 with SYNC and other features. You can see more pics on my facebook page.

Nice truck. Makes me want to run down to my Ford dealer and trade, but you know who says NO WAY.

Don't sweat it...just do it!! I cannot believe this but this unit is making me like driving it more than a Mustang and the torque, man it is a stump puller.

How many miles did you have on the one you had before this one? My '08 only has 66K on it so it's bearly broken in.

It had 118K on it and it needed a few things done to it. It's still a good truck but I just wanted to get into the 21st century and not stay in the 20th like Robert. :rotf:

Larry ... I had 2 08's and now have 2 2011's and do not regret changing one bit. I have had one just over a year and the other I just traded for a few months ago. The gas savings are tremendous especially if you are pulling a trailer daily like I do. The one that is my work truck and does not have the big rims & tires can really get good gas mileage. On the highway if not loaded the 2011's can get 20mpg!! The power difference and just plain strength of the vehicle is huge. Pulling my 46' gooseneck I can tell a big difference in just the strength of the drivetrain of the 2011. I just hook up the trailer, set the cruise, and sit back and enjoy the ride. With the amount of driving that mine are used for I am saving about 20% on fuel every week! For me that is huge. When they are both heavily loaded (the 08 vs. the 2011) the gas mileage difference is not as huge, but you will still notice it at the pump. Downside ... short bed gas tank is only 26 gallons and you have the DEF fluid, but they are really quiet and do drive great.

Heed my warning though ... don't go drive one if you don't want to buy one.:D

And by the way, SNAKBITN is just a whining, cheating #$&&y!

Coyote....what? :rotf:

Larry, this is my first week with the truck and I am getting 19.0 mpg going back and forth to work right now. They said I can expect in between 20 - 22 mpg out of this truck on the highway. They also did a test on these trucks which was very impressive and they got 34 mpg. That's right 34 mpg, read the story here: http://www.thefordstory.com/our-articles/trucks/superduty/journalists-squeeze-2011-ford-super-duty%C2%AE-for-impressive-fuel-economy/

I do not look to get much difference pulling a trailer but since it is my daily driver, I can live with 22 mpg and have the luxury of a Cadillac. I'm just loving this truck, I cannot say it enough. Go ahead and test drive one, they are extremely quiet (they sound like a gas engine) and I unintentionally spun the wheels tonight, they have that much torque.

My truck has the 3.31 gears and 18 inch wheels. That's the fuel mileage combination I wanted. I thought if I had 800 ft/lbs or torque, why would I worry about having 3.55's for take off? :)

You are just jealous that you don't have one! If you wouldn't buy 2 of everything and break half of it then you would be able to afford one! Oh, and let's not even go near the SPA thing. :D

My goal is 21+ mpg and I ended the week with 20.7 mpg so not too bad. :)
