  • Well I lost my mind:

    The boss vetoed my 2006 super duty. Well we ended up with 2017 f-250 lariat premium plus fx4 crew cab 6.7 powerstroke. Hands down the best money I’ve ever spent on a truck. Already leveled with 37x12.50r20. Deleted and tuned it’s an absolute monster. It’s true you can’t be sad and drive a turbo diesel.

    I've been driving the same diesel since 2002!
    No doubt, a diesel vehicle is a joy to operate.
    My youngest purchased a 2017 Dodge 1500 "Eco"Diesel.
    Being half ton, you don't dare pull more than a 10 foot flatbed with a lawnmower!
    ...but out on the highway! That thing is a beast.
    Drove it from home to Phoenix, AZ and back.
    Easy on fuel.
    Comfortable ride.
    Never strained at 80mph speed limits!
    ....just don't like the DEF bull malarkey! But that's just me!

      No def on this one it’s a beast @80 it can hit 100 with no effort. It will break the 37’s loose at 40mph if I want it to.

        Congrats dawg. That is one NICE ride. I'd bet it will last for 450K miles and you ride in luxury. I've had a couple F150s Lariats and have been real pleased with them. No way do they have the power and endurance of your though. Have a good time with it.

          It's a 2017 and no DEF?
          How did they get around that?

              My turbo seems to have given up the ghost and I just passed 70 thousand miles. Can't do the delete as they emissions test diesels here. A new cheetah runs about three thousand and labor probably another thousand. I'm past the five year warranty too. It pays me more to work and pay a mechanic but it still smarts.

              My truck was one of the first ones to exceed a thousand foot pounds of torque, and it's nice to pull the trailer with bobcat and a few thousand pounds of materials up the mountain, but it does cost. My Tacoma is at about eleven thousand miles and a lot easier to park and fill with gas.

                  Find a good cassette deck, an EQ/booster and some sweet 3-way 6 x 9's and you'll be all set.

                        This came from the factory at 945 ftlbs of torque when I get done with it the way I want it should well exceed that mark.

                          Rolling coal is a waste of power and money would rather tune it to not do that.

                            It has to last at least 300k for me to feel like I got moneys worth. Waiting on the stuff to come in I am resetting the maintenance program to zero and will be performed to my standards from hence forth. It gets trans flush and fill tomorrow along with differential flush and fill and transfer case at the dealer. Then fresh oil change all filters changed. Currently running hot shots secret they the fuel system massive improvement in just a 1/4 tank.
