Very nice truck, congrads. I have a 2011 F250, CC, diesel, RWD, longbed, not as nice as yours, only an XLT. The sticker on mine reads its weight as 6,500 llbs, but when ready to go, it is almost 7,500 lbs. Rated at 10,000 lbs less the 7,500 lbs, should have a payload of about 2,500 lbs. Good Luck Please take care of the truck because the dealer told me you don't want to pay to repair the motor. They stated that it was so expensive.

Very nice.

I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as we enjoy our F350. Learning curve on all the bells and whistles takes some time. Been in the truck since June, still learning. Milage is better than my ould supercharged 2002 F150, holding at 17.5 mpg unloaded. No pull time yet, but if I'm near 8 -10 pulling the Cardinal I'll be happy. Our old 93 Pace Arrow DP was running 8-10 mpg with a flat tow Jeep Liberty.

Enjoy, have a good day.

Dave

Nice! Used to be strictly Chevy for our construction company and personal vehicles. One Ford and I was hooked. You'll love it. Read up on the maintenance issues on diesel truck forums and edumacate yourself on what to look for-especially what color diesel pump nozzles are! LOL

I looked at a 2013 F-250 Crew with diesel and 4x4 - the yellow sticker payload was a whopping 1950 lbs!

Would not work for me - I would be at or over payload after 4-5 large adults in the cab and with 900 lbs of tongue weight on the hitch. Would not be able to put any additional weight in the bed without going over recommended payload.
