My second Super Duty

After six years of owning my first ford (2000 super duty 7.3l diesel) I decided it was time for an upgrade. I was so impressed with my old truck and how reliable it has been that I decided to stick with ford.

While searching for a new truck I test drove the Dodge and the Ford. I didn't look at the Chevy as I am not a big fan of the interior and exterior styling. The duramax/Alison is a great combo from what I hear though.

I wanted to look at the Dodge due to the great rebates I had heard about on the 2012's. It was also my first chance of driving to he Cummins. I like the exterior and interior styling of the Dodge and the 3500 definitely rode smoother in the rear end compared to the f350. The Dodge does have a lot less payload and towing capacity though so that might be the reason. I have heard the 2013s have a huge improvement in those areas.

Ultimately it was the high payload 11500 lb gvwr and the fit and finish on the Ford that sealed the deal. The bonus was the Ford discount was surprising better than the ram.

My biggest complaint about my old f250 is the low gvwr. It is only 8800 lbs and the truck weighs around 7500 lbs.

I'm definitely nervous about having a truck long term with all this emissions junk. Once warranty is up I'm sure I will pull that stuff off. The 6.7 is the first ford engine I would consider after the 7.3, so hopefully it treats me just as well.

It's definitely going to pull a lot better than my old truck so I'm looking forward to that when I start camping in July.

Here are a few pictures.
