New Tow Vehicle

We traded in our '09 F150 for a 2011 F250 Lariat FX4 about a month ago. Got the diesel 6.7 with the nav package, tow package, heated and cooled seats, all for $300 over dealer invoice. Truck is not even broke in yet and I'm seeing about 5 mpg's better while towing, not to mention that the over all "tow experience" is significantly better. Well worth the extra $$$ IMHO.

Congrats on the new truck.

You have an awesome truck! My truck has 22000 miles and consistently does 12 to 13 mpg pulling my fifth wheel. The 800 ft lbs of torque and the 400 horsepower makes the hills disappear and the trailer behind you forgettable. Congrats and enjoy your truck.

Congratulations! I haven't even pulled my 5er yet with mine. I can't wait. Even without pulling, the difference between that and my 2008 6.4L is night and day.
