Moved from 6.4L to 6.7L!

I made a move last Friday that I didn't think I would. But with the rebates on the '13s going on and mine '10 still under warranty, I got a heck of a deal on trade. Too good in fact to pass up. The '10 only had 21k miles on her and 13k of that was pulling the 5er. She did a marvelous job. I hope it continues. Can't wait to install all my goodies along with the hitch and head out for the mountains in a few weeks. Here is a pic of the '10

And here is her replacement.

You are seriously going to love the difference between the 6.4L and the 6.7L. I love my '08, but the first time I hooked up my 5th wheel, it was an incredible difference. I've always said I am not a believer in a "night and day" difference, but this was about as close as it came. It is truly a whole new experience.

Let us know after the first tow...if you can get the smile off your face!

Great looking truck! I am mostly a Chevy guy but have owned a couple of Fords over the years. My question is ride quality when towing? I never have found a post that compares, let say 07 and 08's to the new 13 and 14 trucks. Both Ford , Chevy and Dodge. Everyone should know they can all pull most anything out there, but the ride???

Is that a short box?

I will wait and see what the 2015's offer, I may just run my 2010 for a few more years.

not crazy about the rear fenders, but that can be overlooked with the proper amount of horsepower/torque

Very nice and good luck with it! I'm interested in finding out how you find it towing compared to the 6.4. I have a 6 4 and pull a 42 footer and think it pulls great. Well, it does, but really have no comparison as its our first 5er. Be interested to get your honest take on it after some towing. Let us know. Enjoy!

Nope, it is a long bed just looks funny the way I took the pic.
Thanks guys. I hope I love it as much if not more than the '10. Can't wait to see!!!
