Got my 08

Hey guys...finally picked up my 08...this thing is a dream. The ride, handling, the power is pretty much the same as a 6.0 since i have the de-tuned 325hp but a whole lot smoother. I think most of all im impressed with the brakes. I towed my 300C from where i took delivery back home which was around 600kms with ease. I had to jam on the brakes a couple of times for stop and go traffic on the freeway and it didn't even feel like here was anything behind me. Anywho, i'm gonna go giver her a bath then i'll post some pics.


cheers,

Chris

Congrats Chris...

I had to drop my '06 off at the stealership to have the EGR replaced... There was a '08 450 next to me that they started up and MAN is that thing quite... Just like my 6.0 I'll give the 6.4 a couple of years before I think about getting into one... Other then the flaming tailpipe recall they seem to be doing well though....

Ken....

hey guys...sorry to keep you waiting for so long

After washing her yesterday it decided to rain so i was able to snap a few $hitty pictures...this should hold ya'll over for now till i can snap some decent ones.

PS..the fuel mileage SUCKS. It's killing me right now. When i first picked the truck up it was reading 36L per 100kms..it's down to around 26 now but My 6.0 250 with the 100hp tune gets 16.5L per 100kms..half the amount of fuel
