The truck is very nice and that 15K behind it is hardly noticeable, great tow rig.

The good news is even though I've only put 1900 miles on this truck in 7 months once my left knee is ready to go (6-8 weeks) I'm going to get out on the road for some R&R, mostly for the wife as she has had to put up with my bitchin and moaning *** during my post surgery recovery and such.
LOL!!! GET well. Put a 100 miles on mine daily. I love it!!!

Carp-enter Ya, That 2" could be a tail gate crusher at some of the places my wife goes for these horse shows. Not to mention the horses standing on the slope the whole trip. May need to consider a 2wd if we get a new one. Then just worry about getting stuck...??

Yes. My 5th wheel lost 2 inches of clearance. This is major. Especially being its a goose neck. It is a dilemma. The only recourse that I see is 2 lower the pin box and then I would have to raise the spring height over the axles in order to level the trailer back out. A lot of trouble. I don't like my 40 foot fifth wheel pulling high on the front end because that puts a lot of weight on the rear axle. I'm still trying to figure it out

DPF fluid lasts around 5000 miles towing per tank. Get around 16mpg hwy and 11 pulling the RV. Probably the nicest truck I've ever owned. Get the bedliner, 5th wheel puck package, the leather is nice too. Would buy another in a heartbeat.
DITTO!!!! for me to.

Can't relate as I have had the following Ford SD's all bought new and have never had the death wobble.

2005 F-250 PSD 43K miles (stolen)
2008 F-250 PSD 177000
2014 F-350 PSD 39000
2017 F-350 PSD 2100 (only used for pulling 5er)

texas bohunk My brother just returned from a trip to Tennessee pulling a Montana Big Sky. He averaged 11. +- for the trip. He did say it had way more power than his 2010.
