Easiest deal I ever made. It took about 1½-2 weeks in all.

It's an '08 Lariat, CC, LB, 5.4 V8, 3:73 gears. I have plenty of power for the rolling hills in eastern OK. The truck handles my 34', 7,800 lb loaded with a little over 1,000 lb hitch weight tt with ease. Very stable in any conditions. I'm very satisfied with the truck's performance.

I got the 5.4 V8 instead of a V10 because I felt it would have enough power for my needs and it does. I also thought I might get better gas milage. I was wrong. My mpg's, empty - 15 - loaded - 8.5. If I had to do it over again I would probably get the V10. Empty about the same MPG's but better when towing. Like most people, I would never complain about more power.

I didn't consider a diesel because I don't do enough towing to justify the added intial cost or the higher maintenance cost. Like I mentioned earlier, I do most of my towing in eastern OK so I don't need the power.

Hope this helps. Good Luck.


Thanks for the great info, grhodes50!!
I was looking at the 5.4 units as well, thinking about the every day commuter and the MPG's, thinking it would be a best compromise.
Then I read these two lines and my view changed real quick;

If I had to do it over again I would probably get the V10
&
I would never complain about more power.

So I went for the V10.....

Drove it home today and I was all....

Ended up with a 2008 F250, 6.8L V-10 4.10 gears, Crew Cab 6.5 bed, 4WD Lariat, got a helluva deal on it.




Rides like a champ, power to spare, looks pretty good too!
I think it will do a lot better job on our trailer than the 1/2 ton....
