Pulled the trigger! New to forum.

Hey guys I have been lurking around the forum for a few years now reading every thread on the 6.7 and doing research on research and I finally pulled the trigger and bought one! Picked up a 2011 F250 Lariat 6.7 Powerstroke with 30,000 miles. Day after i brought it home i installed the H&S race tuner with 5" down pipe back straight exhaust into a 6" tip. Plastidipped stock rims and added some flat black company graphics. I love the truck in and out! H&S knows how to make a solid tune, smooth power and excellent MPG. Overall I am beyond happy with my purchase and can't thank you guys enough for some great threads over the years to help me make my decision!

Thanks! Agreed had to convince myself to do it haha. I had just brought home a small aluminum 12 foot trailer to haul brush and general junk around and its very low to the ground. Normally pull a 24 foot double axle race trailer!

Congratulations on the new truck.

I had that H&S suction cup mount like yours on my old 2008 F350. It would fall out of the window occasionally and pull the plug out and goof up everything. You would be wise to think about getting a dash mount.

By the way.
