    Pretty close to buying one...

    the good...the bad...the ugly? :dancing:

    anyone know anything about these?

    It is significantally less expensive then the rest on the lot...probably because it is more of a work truck(which i like a lot better!)

    Thoughts?

    Go to thedieselstop.com and read about the 6.2 powered trucks under the 2011 section.

    Thanks for the advice...

    Besided the obvious difference between diesel and gas...is there a big difference between an f350 diesel and a f350 gas?

    Did you get to drive the 6.2? Let us know what you thought of it.

    There is a difference I test drove them both about a month ago. The 6.2 is pretty powerful but I didn't get to tow anything with it but I think the truck can only tow like 10 or 11,000 I know an f-250 with 5.4 is only rated at 9000 lbs. But I just couldn't pay 32,000 for a reg cab strip down XL with a 6.2 that's crazy and put 6.7 in it and now it 42,000.
