I bought this truck to tow the bobcat at work. Its been doing a good job until my transmission started to grind gears. The trailer only weighs 12,000 pounds so this truck should have easily handled it. Luckily it was under warranty so Ford paid for it, though I was out of a truck for a week. New transmission seems to be working fine. I will cross my fingers....read morehide

- Awesome hauler/tow vehicle, good power, great engine braking, nice driver.
- Poor mpg stock. CDL hassle if towing 10,000# trailer. Exhaust particulate filter...
I installed a Gear Vendor overdrive transmission (dropped 600 rpm at 65 mph) and went from 12-13 mpg highway up to 16 to 17 + mpg (lowered rpm + lowered boost). Towing 10 - 14,000 pound gooseneck trailer I get 9 to 9 1/2 mpg at 65 mph (tow without OD) = not too bad for such a great hauler.
Awesome tow vehicle: great pulling power, great stability and great braking, especially engine braking down hill ( shifts down and hardly use brakes coming down curvey mountain passes = much safer and easier on trailer brakes).
Very stable and comfortable to drive. Great turning cut. Reasonable ride for a "medium duty" hauler (33,000 pound GCWR).
This truck is not cheap, but shopping can get you some much better prices than "dealer's list price".
No issues after 10,000 miles....read morehide
