A new tow beast for the 295RST

After 4 great years with my 2012 Ecobeast it was time to upgrade the tow beast. The ecobeast was still performing perfectly well, but a number of factors made it the right time to move to the new truck.

Towing concerns, I have no more towing concerns!

Welcome

Welcome to 6.7L FORD diesel. I know you will enjoy it. Your towing will be changed completely.

Yeah went from 2014 F150 EB SCREW SB to 2016 F350 6.7 PSD SCREW SB and it is amazing the difference and for me at 10,500 miles I do pretty well with Fuel.

Enjoy the New Ride, Happy Trails and Safe Towing

Fuel not so good on my end thus far, low fuel mileage but the truck is still VERY new.

Did you get short box or long and is that XLT or Lariat? I looked at silver and grey but went with a white King Ranch in the end

Probably won't get much better than that. In fact, that 20 mpg highway is great, I would have to drive 65 mph or less to get that. I am on my 2nd one and they both have been about the same, 17/18 highway (80+ mph) 14-15 city and 10-11 towing my Crusader 315
