Talking Finally got a Powerstroke

After dealing with multiple "stealerships", I traded in my '09 HUMMER H3T for the '11 F250 at Covert Ford in Austin TX. I've loved the Ford PSD for 5 years now since I was first introduced and the timing was finally right for me to have one of my own. Didn't get everything I wanted, but got some extra stuff I didn't ask for. I'm happy regardless!

They're iPhone pics, not the best. More to come eventually.

Beautiful!

Keep us posted on mileage and how she drives. I'm torn on gas/diesel.

Thanks.

Still on the first tank and only 15X miles and she's up to 16MPG now (according to the truck). We'll see how much more I can get outta this tank!

So far, I'm loving every aspect of this baby!

Wow very nice truck man.

As far as comparison to the Tundra, it's my roommates. My comparison...blows it out the water. Interior, exterior, quality EVERYTHING. The Tundra is a damn good truck though, not dissing it. It's just that Ford seems to have zeroed in and definitely got this one right.

Wow, two very good looking 2011's and welcome to the Org. JG903, I want one just like what you have. Let us know how the Big 350 does on fuel MPG. Will you be pulling a fifthwheel?

So far I am still on my first tank and I am counting my miles as well. I want to see what it comes out to be. First tank is going to be a little skewed. Coming home I got it up to 90 on a few occasions and was doing 75-80 on highways. I just had to get the feel of it.

Oh and this is my daily vehicle. Every once in a while I will tow a gooseneck with around 10K lbs on it. Nothing this bad boy can handle. I went for overkill. Better to have more power and control than not enough.

Good to hear! I am trading my Tundra in on a 350 when it comes in!
