I know it was hard on that truck pulling the dump trailer with 10 yards of mulch in it
Good to hear!! And I don't think any 1500 would like 10 yards!! Haha! I wanted a regular cab F250 with the 5.4 at one point cause a brand new one was close to 20k... What kind of milage do you get with it?

15mpg highway if i baby it (with NO trailer). Usually in the range from 8-12 during mowing season thats about half with trailer and half without. The past fuel fill ups have been 9-10 but thats all in town driving with no trailer.
