First F250. Longtime Cummins guy.

Well I finally bought my first Ford Diesel. I have always been a longtime Cummins fan but the new Ford has grown on me. I had a 2003 5.9, 2006 5.9, and a new 2012 6.7 Cummins.
Today I purchased a 2012 Ford F250 Lariat FX4 6.7
I am very excited about it. I know just about everything on a cummins but am excited to learn about the power stroke. Have a couple modifications in mind but nothing too crazy just yet. Look forward to learning

Welcome. What made you make the switch? Do you still have any of the other trucks?

I actually traded the 2012 Cummins in for a Mustang Boss302. Don't know what I was thinking. Just wanted something different. Only had the 2012 for 52 days. But after 6 months in the Mustang and a new ranch I decided I had to be back in a diesel. I still love my Cummins but I decided to look at something different. The GM products are a better ride and look great lifted but I have really fallen in love with the new body style powerstroke. I have hope in this 6.7 not to give me any problems. I have a free work car so the powerstroke will be a secondary vehicle and will maybe have 5-8k miles per year put on it.

Traded my F150 in on a 5.0 w/ track pack and recaros. Didn't last too long till I was back in a truck.

Yup. I know the feeling. Awesome cars. But can't replace a truck.
