Ask and ye shall receive!!

2.99 a gallon at the pump, which is not bad considering if you buy it in a gallon jug it is 5.99 a gallon.

Could someone just buy one so we can get a real world review

Kinda leaning toward the f-250 6.2.......at the end of 2011. I'd like to hit the mountain area of N.C and Tenn.......with comfort of mind.

What does being tall have to do with this thread and toughness??........ Basketball players are considered tough .....lol

Should have posted your tall / you pump heavy iron several days a week / hit a MMA gym to train / and have great cardio.........

Why do these threads always get off track ??

I should be buying an ecoboost this summer. I think its the best overall setup for towing/everyday use/mpg's. I'm not too worried about it. It's technology and I love it.

If I could have waited, I would have purchased the 2011 with the Ecoboost Engine. This will undoubtedly be a BIG seller. As it is I ended up purchasing the 2010 5.4 back in June 2010 with the Max trailer tow package (11,200 lb). Ordered the truck with the tow mirrors, tailgate step, Sync, premium sound with subwoofer. Extremely happy with the towing of our 2008 8317ss. With the Ecoboost we would have had more horse power, more torque and better fuel economy. Yes, the big trailers will require a bigger truck but for my trailer loaded at around 7000lbs towing is awesomely sweet.

I am sure that the Dodge, Chev and Toyota groupies like their vehicles just as we love our particular RV's and think they are the best but for those interested in the Ford products, here are some great links for you all...

Yeah, we probably have the Ford guys talking to the Ford guys here but these videos are quite convincing to me. I looked at the competition last time around but wound up with another Ford for these very reasons. (The Truth about Trucks)

In dealers lots here in Miami, FL. The Ecoboost carries a $1750 premium on the base XLT model. See attached window sticker of a unit in stock.

Hey Oregon, what is the tongue weight on your trailer? Just wondering if you have weighed it.
