New Mexico Powerstroke

Good Afternoon! I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. First time diesel owner, first time Ford Owner.

I have been trolling the forums pretty heavy for the last few months as the wife and I were contemplating trading in and up when it comes to our truck!

Well at the end of last month we finally decided to bite the bullet and pulled the trigger on a 2012 F250 CC King Ranch 4x4! I have always been a Chevy father in law turned wrenches on Fords all his after talking with him and actually getting out and driving the new 6.7 I felt as though I found the truck I was always hoping my old Chevy would be! Wife loves the interior and the creature comforts. Mainly going to be the wife driving it to and from work (60 miles/day highway) also going to be getting a travel trailer to pull as many weekends as possible this summer!

Very happy with the truck...just about 500 miles so far! I am looking to gain a ton of knowledge as I have never had a diesel before and this forum seemed to have the best mix of people that will answer questions and help when I need it! also looking to be able to someday have the knowledge that many of the members on here do!
