My buddy has one, and I love it. Empty it flat out flies when you want it to, and pulling a tractor with a front end loader and bush hog it doesnt miss a beat. I had zero visibility issues, and I am one of those people who are anal about mirrors.

Don't mean to jack this thread, but I just went from an '01 to an '07, both extended cab Fords and I think the visibility is worse in the newer one with bigger blind spots. Are you guys saying that they made it even worse in '09+? Just curious what you're comparing the visibility to.

Good friend of mine had a 2011 ecoboost(don't quote me on the year)

He ordered it and on the way home from picking it up the tranny went out.. Ford covered it. But other than that it was a great truck. Very fast, rode good. Even pulled my 773 bobcat and a Polaris ranger on a 3,000lbs trailer a couple times and it pulled great.

I loved that truck and would love to have one as a dd. it was the smoothest riding truck I've ever been in.

We were working together when he sold it for a new 2500hd Chevy and I think it had 30,000 miles on it with no issues.
