Wow couldn't see them from my computer, but can from my phone, nice!!!!!




Do you need to break that thing in before towing? My OM said to not tow until after 1,000 miles on the truck!!!!!

The best way to break in a diesel is to work it.

New Truck Deal Done

Yes, the owners manual says to drive 1000 miles before towing!

The deal was unbelievable. The truck sat on the dealers lot since last October. No one test drove it at all. They gave me top dollar for the King Ranch and close to 22k off the truck plus a lot more for being a repeat customer. It has all the options except remote start, adding that.

Just looking was how I bought the King Ranch replacing the 2009 XLT 5 litre. It works twice!
By the time I get it it will have 500 km on it getting the Hitch installed under bed puck system and the line X spray in liner. My preferred Trailer Dealer were I spent 85k in last 3 years really threw in the towel, for my business and the Ford dealer. They refused to put the hitch on for 4 weeks maybe 4 days couldn't decide.

Break in is short jont on back roads with varying speed and no cruise. Lots of stops just taking it easy. The truck will be half loaded so I am not worried. Others have said drive it and on the Powerstroke forum that seems to be a common way to do it.

I will report back on the trip and towing experience.

I assume it's new- will you get enough miles in before Thursday for the engine break-in? My Ram said 500 miles. But, I ended up throwing a little 3,500 lb. pop-up behind it almost right away.
Thanks Doug

The rockwood is half the capacity so It will be costing running back road routes. The run into Killarney is a secondary highway and at the most I will do 40 mph.

I can tell you that you will notice a world of difference from a gasser to the diesel. The smile on your face will be there for a few weeks.

We have a trip planned right after we pickup the new truck on Wednesday to burn some more miles into her before the Madian Voyage Thursday.

Congrats on your beautiful new truck.... from a woman's perspective, name it Ruby and tell the DW you just bought a real gem. You'll love towing with it. You won't be able to wipe the grin off your face, especially on the first big hill you encounter. Have a great first trip.
