New Ford owner here!!!

I just bought a 2011 F350 CC Longbox Diesel yesterday. I had to do some Christmas shopping today, so I already put 200 miles on it and I couldn't be happier.

I traded a 2006 Dodge Mega-Cab Cummins for it, I loved the Cummins motor but that Dodge pickup is a P.O.S.

Front end was replaced twice in 20,000 miles along with other nickle and dime BS I was always dealing with. I bought the Mega to have the cab size for long trips I take to ride snowmobile.

The new Ford has almost the same size cab, it drives 100% better, and the power is unbelievable. I took my trailer to the dealer with me to try it out with the truck. I knew it would work fine, but when I went to get on the highway I put it to the floor and when I merged I was going 80mph towing my trailer. I was absolutely stunned at the power it put down.

Needless to say I am a believer in the new Ford and the 6.7

If any of you have advice on things I need to do on my new truck let me know please. I intend to keep this for quite awhile and want to keep it as perfect as possible.
