so first time getting truck stuck in the snow! was pushing snow with the bumper... infront of city hall of all places lol.

Anyhow the truck having the ecoboost is just like a turbo diesel when getting stuck. you gotta step on the pedal and wait for them turbos to kick in! truck just walked out of the snow like super duty!

oh also having the rear axle lock on, over 50km/hr (30mph) it automatically disengages and then when you slow down under that again it engages again. if above 30km/hr it shows on the dash that will engage when under 30km/hr.

I'd upgrade to an F250. I picked up a brand new F250 400HP/800ft.lbs. 6.7 V8 Diesel loaded Lariet with leather, electronic locking rear axle, rear view camra, two tone paint, blue tooth, etc. for $43K.
It get's 20 MPG at 75MPH not towing, and 11 to 12 towing my 10K lb. work and play trailer at 65MPH.

Did you buy from Rountree Moore Ford? They have some real clowns working there. I would hate to have been an uneducated buyer and bought from them

Len & Cheri, Thank you for expressing your concerns. No, I bought it at the Ford dealership in Stark Florida.
As far as being an uneducated buyer, all the F250 Ford trucks are built at the same factory, so the particular Ford dealership really isn't that important. Myself, I try to buy the best value for the amount I spend / can afford.
I also do my own maintenance.
You calling hard working people "clowns" seems pretty uneducated to me.

Well, if you bought your truck from them you'd know why I call them clowns. There were a few of them that are the typical used car sales person type. If you went in there as an "uneducated buyer", they would have no problem taking advantage of you. Now what does that have to do with where the truck was built or whether or not you do you own maintenance? Apparently, you completely missed my point.

I also completely disagree on saying a dealership isn't important when purchasing a vehicle. In fact, the dealership is a huge part of the buying experience. The way a dealer treats the customer has a large part in whether or not buyer that customer buys from that manufacturer again.

If you wish to call people who take advantage of customers as "hard working" that's your choice. I will continue to call them how I see them.
