New F350 SuperDuty

This isn't a diesel but I was hoping you all could help me out w/ this... I'm looking at purchasing a new F350 SuperDuty for work & personal use from our Ford Dealers Commercial Truck Center. Would like the diesel, but can't afford it right now so here's what I'm thinking:


2013 Oxford White F350 XL

6.2L gas standard cab, long bed

3.73 or 4.30 gears w/ rear electronic locker

FX4 4x4 package

10,000 GVWR package

Heavy service front springs package

Power equipment group

Roof clearance lights

Trailer brake controller

17" 5 spoke cast-Aluminum wheels

4x4 electronic shift on the fly

HD 40/20/40 vinly front seats

Several questions...

1. The vast majority come w/ 3.73 gears, but they offer a few w/ 4.30 gears. Most of the driving will be w/o pulling anything, but it will pull some weight occasionally. Should I opt for the 4.30 (there's no additional charge) or stick w/ the 3.73s? Any idea what gas mileage will be for either gear ratio?

2. What axles, trans, & t-case does this truck come with? Are they any good?

3. Finally... MSRP on this truck is ~ $37,180 what should I be able to get it for OTD? They're giving me the 'ole rebate run-around...

For that price you can buy a Diesel, I did.

Honestly on that configuration it will only be 5k or so more for a diesel. You'll regret it later if you don't.
