2012 F-350 SRW

Well after being out of the diesel seen for about a year now, I have decided to get back into it. I shouldn't say "decided," more like "needed" because I just recently purchased a 2013 Keystone Raptor toy hauler and my little Chevy 1500 just isn't going to cut it.

I found a left over 2012 F-350 SRW (new) at a dealership and I am currently working a deal. It is an XLT that has some pretty good options, but most importantly the diesel. My question guys and forgive me for asking, but anything I should know about the 12 models or any 11+ Super Duty?

I'm pretty stoked to get it or any new truck. This Chevy I got wasn't my first choice, but it was required to pull my other camper and boat. It did it's job, but it needs to move on...

I recently upgraded from my '01 F250 7.3 to a 2012 F350 SRW also for pulling my camper. I got a crew cab long bed XLT with alot of options and love it. I pulled my 32ft 5th wheel last weekend for the first time with the new truck and it was unreal how great it tows. The newer diesels are going to be a little more expensive to maintain than your previous half ton but that's the nature of the diesel. I say go for it and don't look back. I thought I would regret selling my 01 7.3, I miss it, but I would never want to go back to it after having this new 6.7. Good luck, post pics if you get it.

I recently purchased a 2012 f350 dually. It has been great so far, but I still have less than a 1,000 miles on it.

I previously had a 7.3l and like the post above, I loved that truck but the features of the newer diesels are great.

I would suggest you look at your load ratings on the SRW before you make your purchase. I have a 40' fifth wheel an that is why I chose the drw. It really did not cost much more than the SRW and you can probably find leftover 2012's still just like I did.

Goo luck with the new purchase and they are a blast to drive.

You'll love it. I came from a line of Tundras, which were fantastic for me. But, this truck is just awesome. The powertrain is smooth. My Dad has two 7.3s...one with gear vendors splitter and full banks upgrade. It's a mean machine. But he wants a 6.7.

Enjoy!

I also came from the old but trusty 7.3 family; had a 2000 F-350 xlt dually. Picked up an 04 F-650 5.9 cummins. Both struggled to pull my 2011 Raptor Velocity so I sold them both and orderd a 2013 F-350 CCLB DRW. I pulled my trailer for the 1st time last weekend with the new truck and it pulled like a dream. It also stopped on a dime. The trailer weighs right around 15k - loaded with dirt bikes, water, fuel for the generator and all my race gear. I ran 75 mph up hills. I've got a little over 2k miles on the truck. Have no intentions of getting rid of it. Ever.

Ended up not getting that truck, but I did get a new 12 F-350 SRW King Ranch and at one heck of a deal. I'm pretty stoked, I can't believe how much better it drives compared to my old 04...

I have a 2012 F350 SRW that I tow a sizeable boat with. Works great. They make a 5th wheel prep package that is nice. I have it on mine but no toy hauler. I have tried to use it as an excuse to buy a toy hauler to my wife. I still don't have a toy hauler so you know how well it is working. 7k miles and no issues so far. I have an Edge Insight and I like knowing when the DPF is getting full and in regen.

You won't be sorry. Upgraded from my 08 6.4 KR F250 and never regretted it.
