    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...

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

    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?
