I traded in my 2013 F150 FX4 Ecoboost on my 2013 F350 FX4. I did appreciate my F150, it has more interior room than the F350 and the ride was exceptional with my leveling kit and Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks. The performance of the Eco is impressive also.

But, all that being said, I by far enjoy, appreciate and work my F350 much more than the F150 ever provided me.

Of course I have been driving Superduty trucks with various diesel and PSD drivetrains since 1997, so they just feel right to me. Kind of like those perfect fitting Levi jeans, old well worn cowboy boots or leather gloves that you have owned for way too many years. There just non replaceable.....LOL!!!!

Get a Chip or Tuner, your mileage will go way up and you will not lose any performance. I run 22-24 mpg day driving, 14-16 towing. I have 165,00 on the clock. I have a Super Chip and it is fine with me. Talk to some guys on this forum to fix up and 'spend your money'

My 2 cents

With 2013 F-350 w/ 6.7 SRW I'm getting 10-11 pulling 40' fiver and get 22 around town without! I was surprised to see it go up a bunch after crossing over 10K miles (yes...it's only got 10.5K miles...I'm saving it for retirement LOL). VERY pleased with mileage and just about everything else...it just pulls and pulls and pulls.
PS. Get the best hitch you can...makes an incredible difference!

Which Hitch I was looking at the Reese 26K? Even though max trailer I will get is 12500#'s also looking at 2015 F350 with Crew 4X4 6&3/4 foot box. Which gears are best for Mileage 3.55 is what I have now in my 150
