Hi guys, i'm back in a ford

Well after a LONG LONG thought process i decided to sell my 2008 Z71 Dmax and purchase what i now own 2011 F-250 Lariat FX-4.....all i can say is i was very scared to make the swap cause i loved my dmax. That sucker was a work horse and i built her up with custom tuning and wheels and tires and exhaust. Very hard for me to let her go.

Now to the ford, this thing is a freaking beast, stayed away from ford cause of the 6.0 and 6.4 motors but have heard nothing but good things about the new trucks and the 6.7 ford built motor. As of now i am very happy with the truck and glad i made the switch. Now i have been driving a heavily modified diesel and to make the swap into this i was thinking oh wow back to a stock HP truck. She hasn't let me down yet and the acceleration on this thing is unbelievable. It'll turn the damn tires over no problem. Gonna leave the motor and exxhaust alone right now but i pplan on leveling it and moving up to a 35" tire. I like the stock 20's alot on these lariats.

I would like to know what you guys think about these trucks, did i make the right decision?
