First post - First Ford - First diesel

Well after 6 Chevy's, just traded my 2007 1500 Silverado 6.0 2WD for a brand new 2012 F250 6.7 P/S crew cab. 3.55 rear FX4 Lariet. Went with the 2012 after getting almost 14k off sticker. Truck is completely loaded, main reason for the upgrade was pulling a 28+ ft Whitewater offshore boat that I bought about 4 months back. @ approx. 12,000 lbs. the 1/2 ton Chevy gasser and the tranny were just too much of a struggle not to mention 5-ish mpg when towing and a 2 WD at the ramp was making things interesting depending on ramp and tide.

Anyhow, love the truck!! Very impressive, did a lot of reserch and I am thrilled with the ride. Time will tell, and a lot to learn about the truck and the 6.7 P/S. Just wanted to say hello and learn from some experts - thanks - looks like a great site!!
