WHOOOO Stop!

Have about 400 miles on my new 2012 F-250 4X4 CC, nice truck but it seems to need a lot of brake peddle to get the thing stopped. Is this trait normal for a 2012? I get into my Raptor and almost skid to a stop because i`m using the same pressure as i do on the F-250.

I've heard of few people here that commented about that in the past. I don't own a 6.7L but when I fully load my 6.0L or 6.4L it take a little bit to stop. Maybe a 6.7L owner will chime in on the subject.

Can't say I have ever had that issue, even pulling my boat. I know you have different brake system than I do. Mine was the last year they had the hydro boost brake system.

I noticed that too when I first got mine. I think now that the glaze on the pads wore off it stops easier. Of course I'm not going back and forth between vehicles so it may be that I adjusted to it

Your truck is normal. The brake material Ford is using on the Super Duty is very long lasting so it is slow to break-in. Expect the brakes to be trouble free - - - once they seat, and last a long time.

I had a new 2011 F250 before trading for a new 2012 F450. BOTH trucks were the same.

The first 500 miles make you worry about stopping quickly and I even found myself leaving extra room in heavy stop and go traffic. Once they hit 500 miles the brakes had improved a lot.

It will take 2000 miles normal use before the brakes will reach what I consider 100%. At that point you will be very pleased and have a ton more confidence.

Seating the brakes and setting the rear end gears are the reason Ford recommends putting at least 500 miles on a new truck before loading heavy or towing. This is excellent advice for ANY new truck BTW.

Believe me, after two thousand miles you will be saying Ford has great brakes but they do need time to seat the parts when new. I'm kinda thinking these brake systems will last far past 100k miles for normal driving and hauling.

I hope you are right. Seem to wear though with all the dust that accumulates on the rims in 1500 miles.

Man I'm still waiting for mine to break in. I feel like it should have happened by now

Ya, 500 miles isn't enough for everything to get situated yet.
