Soon to be a New 2012 6.7L F350 King Ranch Dually Owner

After looking around for the past couple weeks, and deciding to go with a 350 or 450, I just agreed to purchase a new 2012 F350 Dually King Ranch in the Black/Tan color. I have to drive a little ways to get it (6hrs), but do not mind because I got a pretty good deal on it and it is on the way to my home from where I am at. Will hopefully get to go pick it up Monday.


I sold my 2003 7.3l that I have had for 3 years. Hopefully I do not regret selling this truck. I had a lot of fun modifying it and driving it. Just needed a bigger truck for towing purposes.

Looking forward to learning a lot more about this truck from all you guys.

You should love the truck. I hear they are getting the best fuel mileage when pulling heavy loads. I hope to get one in the next year or two before the crazy EPA BS forces radical changes in our trucks.

Picked up the new truck today.

All I can say is that was a pretty comfortable 400 mile trip today. I love the AC seats, the hands free talk system is the best so far (comparing to my wife's Acadia and my Sisters jeep patriot). The power is nice and I average 16 mpg at 75mph. Hoping the MPG's improve and I am sure they will as I get it broken in.

Looking forward to hooking this thing up to my 5'ver and seeing how it handles it.
