Just bought a new 6.4

Traded my 08 for 2010 on Saturday. Truck is a lariat and pretty well loaded. Sticker price was 58000. Walk out the door TTT with no money out of my pocket for 38300. I was extremely happy with what they gave me for my trade, which really helped make the deal happen for me. The only draw back is starting over with no lift and tires. I asked them about trading tires so I could keep my nittos, but they wanted to knock 1500 off my trade. Heck I didn't pay that much for them new. Hope to get the front windows tinted today and get ready for a trip to S.C. on Wednesday. I already like the new lock out speed for the torque converter. Now it is time to figure out that navigation system.lol That thing has more option and settings than any aftermarket system I have seen and the travel link with the weather forecast and radar is the bomb. Looking forward to using that for hunting and fishing trips.

Holy crap, that's a crazy good deal. Enjoy.

To put things into perspective, my wife just traded in her 08 H2 with 35K miles and they gave her 42K on trade. You truck is 10x's what that thing is/was worth.

Thanks, crazy part is I didn't have to do much fighting with them. This dealer still has over 30 of these trucks on their lot so they are just trying to get rid of them.

Most of the problems they found with the 08 job1 trucks like mine have been corrected.

Just got back from a 1500 mile round trip to S.C. and Ga. and back home. I can not believe the mileage I got on this trip with my 2010. I was lucky to get 12 mpg with my stock 2008. Hand calculated I was getting better than 16mpg in my 2010 and the lie-o-meter was actually right on within .5mpg. I don't know what the change between the two trucks could be other than my 08 had 3:73 gears and 2010 has 3:55 gears. I was planning on putting my Spartan tuner and deleteon this truck, but with this kind of mileage I'm not sure it would be worth the trouble.

The gears make the biggest difference, but the revised stock tuning helps too. I think with the delete on and the 250 loaded, you should be upto 20mpg if not beyond on the HWY.

Yea I figured it (gears) might have a decent impact. I wasn't aware that they had revised the stock tuning on these truck. Whatever FORD did it sure has made a big in my new 6.4. Thanks FORD
