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!!

but seriously welcome, and dont be afraid to ask questions. Thats the one thing i've learned. If something sounds fishy, it probably is and these guys will set you straight.

Nice truck. Nice boat. Nice dog (although at first I thought he was pinned under your rear tire.)
