My Horse Hauler

I finally got around to doing a review on my truck. It's only the second new, off the lot, vehicle I've ever bought (I've always been a big fan of letting someone else take the depreciation hit!)

A year ago, fall 2008, I took the plunge and bought a Ford F350 Diesel and so far, knock on wood, it's been great. She sucks up the fuel but boy soes she pull. Not a drag nor a whimper when we're heading into Washington's high country with a loaded horse trailer behind us.

From a ford man, very nice. Wish we had the cash to spring on a 6.4 before the new 6.7 comes out and there's no more manual trannys...

What did you have before? Many like to bash the 6.0, but dangit, I love mine. Took me cross country several times safely, never whimpers with the trailer, and kept me safe through a deer and cow/calf incident.

What kind of mileage you get out of it? Hear lots of across the board numbers due to the DPF (just remember lots of idling will cause more active regens and suck more fuel, too...)

That's b/c nobody wants white anymore! I prefer it b/c it stays cool in the summer and doesn't show dirt as bad...

Nice truck!!! I also have a Ford. Mine is an 06 F250 ext cab 6.0 diesel. So far I have had no issues with it and it handles my trailer fine. I pull around 16mpg around town and towing fully loaded about 12. This is the only pic I have of it Not very good..That's my trailer behind it I was camping in Va.
