I'm sure he's a "big" boy, and has done research pro's & con's with an investment like that. I know several Folks who are purchasing the "new" Ford diesels with some reservations, but brand loyalty runs like blood.

67,974 actual miles on the Dodge if you read the 39,00 miles is on the AMSOIL AME 15w-40 HD 12 TBN diesel oil with the dual by-pass oil filtration. I don't change the oil in the truck. I actually need to up the mileage on the oil. I purchased the truck with 17,500 miles like new, Tow 13,500 GTWR daily. Working it hard, owned the truck for a 1 1/2 years Don't start

Muir's, sweet truck! I'm kind of partial to that last '07 you guys got with the SS X-Blade and Curtis sander, but I love chrome on this one. The '08/'09s are growing on me...sweet truck none-the-less!

This one getting an X-Blade too?

Keep up the good work!

i love that truck. i just got one to. I have a 08' F-450. drove it from chicago to texas, then from texas to las vegas averaged 6.4 MPG with a 20ft flatdeck equipment trailer carrying 4000 lbs. the fuel economy sucked. the whole trip was completed in one week and $4000.00 in fuel. that was 2 months ago, when diesel wasnt $5.00 per gallon.
