RE: 2017 F-450

the only gain I saw with the 450 (on paper) would be the bigger rear axle and wheels, ratings were the same 14k gvwr. So for me that's all I cared about.

RE: 2017 F-450

Well for me it was still worth the price, yes my highway fuel mileage isn't what my 2011 with 3:55 gears got, but the turning and ability to park is awesome.

RE: 2017 F-450

Ok, I will believe you but I don't understand why they don't then state that 3:73 is deleted for that reason. I did once try to find where ford states exactly what makes the HD tow, not sure where they've hidden that info. I see that KR 350 drw is still on the lot since January, im sure eventually someone will get a good deal on it.

RE: 2017 F-450

Sorry buddy but you are wrong and here is an example window sticker from a 2016 drw sitting on the lot. http://www.windowsticker.forddirect.com/windowsticker.pdf?vin=1FT8W3DTXGEB01440 notice the HD tow package and gear set are 2 separate options, HD tow gives you the wide track. So if they were a package why would they be listed as 2 separate items with separate pricing?

RE: 2017 F-450

4:30 gears were not part of the HD tow package, that was an additional $350 on the 2016 models and so far I have not regretted getting either option! BTW....believe it or not I didn't opt for the 450 because I didn't want the 19.5" wheels, maybe I will regret that someday ...that day hasn't arrived yet.

RE: A good friend

I had a 08 6.4, the truck was deleted, once that is done it will run great. They did have some with radiator issues, but by now I would think those would be mostly resolved. I never owned a 6.0 but have a friend with a diesel performance shop, he can bullet proof one for under $4k, so if it hasn't been done I would plan for it. For that size trailer and trying to keep on a budget like I can imagine he might be on, I would look for a gas engine truck, gm 6.0 or ford v10. Maybe even consider a 1/2 ton, I cant imagine a 21' weighting that much as most 1/2 tons can now tow 10k lbs.

RE: 2017 Ford Super Duty Tech and Specs Revealed

my fathers 07 gmc dmax dually just turned 33k miles, he is now replacing brake lines and contemplating a new truck. He is 3 years into retirement, my suggestion was to keep his current truck and dump some maintenance items into and he should still be ahead.

RE: Truck Theft - on the news last night

I finally agree with Perrysburg on something! Ford will build me another truck, if you want it just please make certain I don't get it back! This once happened to me with a jeep, it was recovered and the inside was destroyed, vehicle was never the same after insurance fixed it.

RE: 2017 Ford Super Duty Tech and Specs Revealed

I totally agree and with pricing of vehicles heading to $100k I cant believe there is no profit for them to build more here. Recently my wife went to replace her caddy and looked at an escalade(she was dreaming!) Anyway, they had one on sale for $94k! with a sticker of 97k! She ended up with at an infiniti dealer and they had a QX80 in the showroom I believe is a Nissan armada dressed up, it was on sale for $81k. All this technology is driving the pricing of cars way up, you cant even buy a Hyundai that isn't loaded with tech. and I bet most of it is made dirt cheap in countries like china!

RE: fantastic fan create-a-breeze

I just changed out the bathroom vent fan with a vortex rather than a fantastic fan. The reason I went this route was I have a roof vent cover installed and only needed a replacement vent fan add in the ease of installation, less than 20 minutes and no disturbing the roof. Also the vortex I found was $48, much cheaper than the fantastic. I have a fantastic fan in my garage and it is nice and quiet, the vortex not so quiet but it definitely pulls a lot more air than the stock fan did.

RE: 2008 duramax and 2011 power stroke issues?

My point....there are a lot of ford trucks out there that have been trouble free! Some people make the 2011 ford 6.7 seem like it had the same amount of issues as a 2004 6.0 BTW turtle I never said the ford 6.7 was the best engine made or even second best.

RE: 2008 duramax and 2011 power stroke issues?

Once again I had the only good ford diesel as my 2011 ran 110k miles with zero issues, I only traded it in because it was a f250 and I needed my payload. But hey my pervious 2008 6.4 ford was also a unicorn and is still running with almost 300k miles, friend bought it and has loved it....truck was a regular cab. If your looking at a ford truck on a dealers lot ask for an oasis report this will show what has been done to the truck.

RE: 2017 Ford Super Duty Tech and Specs Revealed

biggest thing that bothers me about my truck that I dislike is the top of the dash. mine is hard plastic with a door up top that houses the AV connections, I think the Ram and Denali were much nice having a leather like cover. Stupid but it is something that for some reason has started to bother me. Even my wife's 2010 Cadillac has a leather dash cover. other than that honestly having driven all 3 brand duallys I don't think you could go wrong with any brand.

RE: 2017 Ford Super Duty Tech and Specs Revealed

I haven't really found the wood part of the wheel to be an issue and in the winter I wont find the heated part to be one either. The wood part of my wheel is black. It gets pretty hot. mine is wood colored, medium brown ish, as is the other fake wood parts on the dash. Fill in your profile so we can see what truck you have. The LongHorn and Limited both have all real wood. sorry not a ram, I own a ford. I almost bought a ram limited, it was a very close decision. 2016 f350 crew cab dually, heavy tow with 4:30 gears and platinum package.
