- Upgraded interior
- Power over rated, lousy milage, too much squat with trailer
I recently traded a 2008 F350 dually 4x4 with 3500 miles on it for a 2008 Dodge 3500 dually 4x4. Man what a difference. I know you Ford diehards won't agree but drive a Dodge first then argue. Better yet find someone who owns one and tow something. You won't be able to get to a Dodge dealer fast enough. The key points for the Dodge are it gets better MPG and it has more power. Yes more power. Remember the Cummins diesel is a true in line 6 cylinder diesel motor. Its built for class 6 and 7 trucks and Dodge put it in a class 3 rated truck. Not to mention with a 4:10 axle it can tow 16,700 pounds. Thats on paper. I know it can pull more. The 350 is rated for 15000LBS and the 450 for 16000LBs on paper...With a maxium load one has to floor the gas pedal in the Ford. It takes awhile to get moving. That eats lots of fuel. Also have you ever noticed the lag the truck has when you punch the accelerater without a load. That incidently is not a new problem. The 6.0's for also know for that...For the record I've owned a few Fords in my time so I know what I'm taking about. Once you drive a Dodge or better yet tow something you will be amazed. You'll feel a little guilty, like I did, but you'll have to admit that the Dodge is better....read morehide

- Smooth Ride, Towing & Pulling Power, Sharp Looking
- Awful Sound System, God Awful Fuel Economy, Needs Larger Fuel Tank (38 Gal)
I currently have 5,000 miles on my 2008 F-350 Diesel 6.4 DRW, I'm only getting 10 - 11.5 MPG @ 65 - 72 MPH Highway in Florida.
Also had to purchase after market Infinity 6x8 speakers, Ford has awful Sound Systems.
Needs a larger Fuel Cell, Towing 15,000 Lbs I'm getting 7.5 - 8.5 MPG
@ 60 - 65 MPH, was filling tank every 280 - 300 Miles.
Otherwise, truck is great. I also own a 2008 Chevy Truck, Hands down the Ford wins overall....read morehide

- EXCELLENT RIDE, COMFORT AND GREAT LOOKS!!!!
- CHEAP WEATHER STRIPS, POOR FUEL ECONOMY !!!
REF:::2008 LARIAT CREW CAB 4X4 DRW!!
SINCE THE ENGINEERS AT FORD ARE CLUELESS ABOUT
DESIGNING A FUEL EFFICIENT DIESEL MOTOR THAT IS
BETTER OR THE SAME AS THE PREVIOUS YEARS. PERHAPS
IF ANYBODY OUT THERE CAN ENGINEER A DEVICE OR A
ADD-ON MODICATION TO THE 2008 DIESEL THAT WILL GIVE
IT BETTER ECONOMY, I WOULD BE WILLING TO PURCHASE
THAT DEVICE FOR UP $ 10,000.00. THAT IS LESS MONEY
THAN I WILL SPEND TO RUN THIS TRUCK FOR 5 YEARS
COMPARED TO THE OLDER SUPERDUTY TRUCK.
WHAT A JOKE !!!! THE CHINEESE ARE COMING !!...read morehide
