Thumbs up Loving the 12 F250 PSD

I have had her 1 week now. I am not missing my 08 Duramax. I love everything about my truck so far (except the pavement bounce I get on the interstate - still researching what I might do about this).

10 - Body & Paint Fit & Finish
9 - Ride Comfort (would be a 10 except for above mentioned pavement bounce)
10 - Interior and dash layout, seats, ergonomics
10 - Handling & Drive-ability - great maneuverability and comfort through the corners - stout, yet very very easy to drive for extended periods
9 - Exterior Design & Beauty - love the look of the truck - look of rugged quality
10 - Transmission - I know everyone raves about the Allison, but I prefer the 2012 Torqueflite to the Allison in my 08. I also drove (4) different 2012 Duramax trucks before making my decision and 2 of 4 of these trucks shifted about like my 08 and 2 shifted better than my 08. On the other hand, 4/4 PSD Torquflite's drove like the one I bought - awesome! I preferred the Ford tranny over better of the (4) 2012 Duramax trucks I drove. The tranny is one of the favorite things that I like about this truck!
9 - Scorpion motor - very very smooth and powerful. I may change this to a 10 or move down to an 8 over time just depending upon fuel mileage and dependability etc., but so far the smoothness and power delivery is awesome. It has less power than my deleted and chipped Duramax but who cares, the Scorpion has plenty of juice!
10 - Turns better than my 08 Duramax - gets in and out of parking spaces easier and backs up and generally gets around easier - power sterring and backup camera and power folding mirrors are sweet
9 - SYNC - is doing almost everything I want (except text) at this point
10 - Little things - the way the blinkers work, the remote start, the tailgate step, the driver's door keypad to unlock, the instrument panel layout - the more I get to know my truck the more I see how well thought out a Ford is compared to the 08 GMC and the 07 Didge Megacab I had prior to the 08

I am a happy camper so far!
