New to Powerstroke
Hello everyone! My name is Frank and I live in Florida. This is my first diesel and I love the truck. I sold an 05 F150 FX4 that I did many upgrades to so I could get this truck. I will be doing a lot of modifications to the truck, including the sound system , looks and performance.
My story goes like this: I sold my F150, shopped for an 08 F250 diesel and stumbledupon this 08 F250 Black Lariat (I love all black), so I bought it that night from a Ford dealer. The truck has 6600 miles and was the owners wife's truck. She added a sprayed in bed liner and a 5th wheel. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse. The next day the truck smoked like crazy, so I returned it. I researched and found that it was only a minor thing (the computer needed to be reflashed), so a couple of weeks later I went back and rebought the truck. Now, a week later I am happy I did. It averages 18mpg on the highway running 78mph and around 12.8 around town.
Anyhow, thanks for reading and I look forward to learning and helping in these forums. Thanks!
