1600 miles and I am real happy about the move from 08 6.4 to 11 6.7. Hate to sound on the band wagon but Ford started something good in 08 with the new body and put a ribbon on it in 11 with this new engine, a/c seats and microsoft. Only time will tell if this truck will hold up. The two big giant cup holders, made for a true king, in the 08 were they best I have ever used and wish I could of fit them in my 6 passenger 2011. Anybody order a six passenger, be advised there is no a/c electric plug in cab nor any air vents behind the front middle seat. I was fine with it when receiving truck, but was just suprised.

black leather in mine with solid silver paint. Has yet to be washed in 1600 miles and is patiently waiting at a dusty heliport for my return. No pics of the truck, but will get some upon my return. The 11 seat backs have electric button lumbar support and I prefer the new seats to the 08, but the 08 seats were also comfortable imo.

Base plate gasket on the bottom of motor was the oil leak on mine. There is an update to the gasket or something when they install. Mine was done back in Jan. and has not leaked a drop since knock on wood.

What your experiences with the MPG on the 2011(not towing) ? Does the 2wd get better MPG than 4wd ?
I really like the 2011 and like to get one in two weeks(waiting for labor day incentives ) I currently have an 05 6.0 and gets 16-18 mpg(not towing)and I really like that
