Help with Engine Decision
New to the forum but have been following for awhile. I am ready to order my '12 F250 and day now and still cant decide between the gas or diesel (diesel guys dont kil me) I have read threads about people asking if the gas or diesel is for them but it usuually has to do with their towing needs, mileage etc.
For me I do no towing or off roading. Its strictly going to be a street queen like all my trucks have been. I have only had F150's in the past with 6" lift/35's and for this truck it will get a 8" pure performance 4 link lift with 40's. Most people say that the gas engine is more suited for me but is that a good decision for this size lift and tires? Do I need the low end torque to move those tires?
I have never owned a diesel before and was wondering if there is a lot of messing around with that regen system, nox fluid if i dont tow or do a lot of miles? I live in Canada and in the past i have stored my trucks in the winter and i dont imagine i will be rolling in the snow with 40's this year. Also I do not see many people lifting these 2011 with the 6.2L and didnt see anything at Sema
Thoughts?...............Experience so far with you guys with the big lift?
