My new ride
Traded my 2000 F-250 Super Cab 7.3 Powerstroke to this new baby.....2004 F-250 Crew Cab 5.4 V-8, Lariat package, with 4WD shift on the floor.
Lots more room.........and a lot more quiet !!!!!
Here is a pic.....had to test the 4WD going into my camp.....lol...
This baby even has a moon roof.....
I did not need the torque of the diesel anymore, I do not do as much towing as I used to, and that is why I went with the gasser this time.
Will have some add-ons put on in the coming weeks and I will post some pics then...

Later

Nice truck.

I didn't think anyone ever switched back to gas after owning a diesel:)

Good lookin truck--Now after a few tanks,give us some HONEST mpg comparisons between ps and gas,we can see how long for ps make up that 5000.00.

great looking truck. My friend has the 5.4 in his 250 also. He loves it. Did you get the auto transmission or the manual?

My girlfriend is the same way. "Buy an automatic so I can drive it" I think I will get a stick in my next truck just to hear her whine about it!!

Your better off with gas in that truck. I hear many people are having many problems with Ford's (international Diesel) new 6.0 PSD.

Hey PJ,

I have the same truck only 2003. I love it. It is not my work truck. Still have an old F250 diesel for that. So far I have 12k miles on it and have been consistantly averaging 14 mpg and that is primarily off highway driving. Good luck with the new truck.
