The Ford's PS 6.7 being so quiet is what really impressed me too beausdog. That and no nasty diesel smell, oh yeah....the 400 HP and 800# of torque is sweet too. I have towed 2x's now with it and the difference from my F150 is tremendous. I can tow with ease now and not worry much about being overloaded. Damn the continental divide..were going camping!!!

I only had to honor of towing with mine stock twice, once with the trailer, and once to pick up my brother in laws 30 something foot enclosed trailer as the tranny on his SECOND 2011 Dodge went out (after that ONE ride towing with my rig he now owns a trouble free 2011 drw f350)

anyway, even at stock power levels the 6.7/tranny combo did nothing but impress me..the shifting program on that thing was one of the best i ever had the pleasure of driving, even compared to my previously custom tuned trucks.

mine is now tuned to around 489rwhp, and 898rwt (on a mustang dyno, not flywheel numbers).....towing my near 10k trailer these days does nothing but make me grin ear to ear!.....ford did it right with this one!!

enjoy

They all have there problems... my neighbor went though a tranny in his Ford with less than 25K on it and Ford isn't honoring the warranty (his lawyers are dealing with it now).

Lemon's are out there is all I'm saying.

I'm sure there was a reason for them not honoring the warranty. Was it tuned?

I'm sure there is more to the story...there are always at least 3 sides to every story....his and fords and the truth lies in the middle. But i dont see ford not honoring the warranty without justifiable proof or alot of circumstantial evidence he went outside the parameters of the truck, like axle bent or cracked because of a heavy load etc.....

It's been a long/expensive road for me. It took me far too long to learn proper weights and towing capacities so it cost me:

2007 Toyota FJ
2007 Chevy Tahoe
2007 Toyota Tundra
2009 Ford F-350 SRW
2011 Ford F-350 DRW

And NOW Ford is coming out with the Super Duty Platinum!

Were those all for the same travel trailer? If so, that was a tough learning experience!

Isn't that a sweet truck! If I had $65k I didn't need, I would have my order in for one already. But, I'm still paying on my truck and fifth wheel, so it'll be a while...
