The new G-mobile. Picked it up last week after totalling my Dodge. '08 F-250 PSD. Sorry to Argo, Blue Water Ho, and the other Goat fans. My lil' sis works for Ford Motor Credit and got me in on the 'A' plan. Less than dealer cost if I understand correctly.







A pic of the Dodge for those who missed the thread.

I can honestly say that was the best truck I ever owned. Sad to see her go. We'll see about this one. So far, so good.

Congrats on the beautiful truck. I guess everyone just got the itch at the same time. Must be all the rain. I just got one too last Saturday in black. I still can't believe I've got two Fords now in the driveway and I'm a Chevy man. go figure.

dude, that is horrible.....My truck gets 2mpg better than that while towing 7000 lbs...... did you say it was a gas engine or something? if it is diesel there is something wrong, go check the tailpipe and make sure you dont have flames coming out of it.....

It's 11mpg if you keep your foot out of it.

I didn't believe it either so I went and looked at the dieselstop.com, apparently this is happening to a lot of people. 11-12 seems to be quite common. All of the Ford guys with the new 6.4 are saying that if that is there only problem from a ford deezel then they can live with it.

A search of my posts would turn up several posts I made about waiting for Ford to get the bugs worked out of the first run engines, but the message board is pretty dang quiet on the 6.4 forum, Ford might have gotten it right this time and maybe they can put the 6.0 debacle behind them. I sure hope they got it right, I truly feel this engine was going to make or break Ford in the "big" truck dept.

Anyways, sorry for the hi-jack Mr.G, that is an awesome truck and will bring you years of happiness.

I have a 2000 7.3 and getting 16-20, the new 6.4 not gonnan happen unless you chip it.

The flame thrower is what sealed the deal for me. That is one cool option.

That comment is so old, they will ban you for saying it in the diesel forum:tongue:
