Nice. Get that 500 miles on it for "break-in" and hook up. You're gonna love the way it pulls your trailer. Congratulations.

No can do, I'm leaving for South Padre Island after work today. Short pull though, about 30 miles one way. She's currently at 360 miles as of lunchtime today.I'll go easy on her though.

Maiden Voyage was great, averaged 11 mpg. Plenty of power in the face of a strong head wind.

STAY AWAY FROM THE CAMPER DEALERS! Now you will want a bigger and heavier trailer!!! Congrats on the truck, she is beautiful! Also glad you went with the 350, it has a higher payload to help with that 5th wheel that's coming next

I average 12. 5 on the drive home. I was impressed by the amount of power even compared with my old 6.4, which pulled very well. I climbed the Queen Isabella Causeway like I was running empty!

Yup...like I say, "I'm not a big believer in a "night and day" difference, but this is as close as it comes". And I believe that too! I was the same way about my 6.4L. The 6.7 though just blows it away.

Funny thing is though, a lot of people still want to mod it for more power or mileage, or whatever. Dang...it just doesn't need it.

Nice looking truck GASPEDDLER! Almost the same coloring as my new RAM I would have considered Ford also but up here in my neck of the woods I just couldn't beat the deal I got on the RAM vs. the prices I had been quoted on the Ford's and Chevy's. Enjoy!

Great to have you aboard! I just returned from a 600 mile trip and averaged 10.6 with my F350 6.7 and loved it. It's my first as well as my FL38 Cedar Creek Custom. See you on the road!
