1st Ford Truck

Been a diehard Chevy fan since a kid . But went to work for Ford Motor in 01. So when I needed a new truck it had to be a Ford and if it had to be a Ford it had to be diesel. It is a 05 6.0 Supercrew XLT . I really like it but the fuel mileage stinks. So that is why I joined this forum . And there seems to be lots of good info on here. Thanks for having me!

to our site. You'll find the folks here are friendly, intelligent and always willing to give a fella a hand. The MPG thing... no biggy cause you'll have so much fun playing with your truck that the mileage worries will move to the back burner. Post some pics of your rig and let us know where you're from soon.
