2011 6.2

So I'm looking into trading in my 08 6.4 for an 11 6.2. I think the trade out of a diesel makes sense for me. Looks like Ford put some real nice new features/upgrades into the '11s.

Taking a look underneath, I didn't notice a steering stabilizer. Is this a cost cutter or did they make some improvements in the front suspension/steering that would eliminate the need for one?

Has anyone gone with an aftermarket yet, if so which one?

I got an 2011 f-250 and it has a stearing stabilizer, Maybe a little higher on the axel. Todd

Mine does too! I came out of a 6.4 when I got my 6.2 and I couldnt be happier! The 6.2 is completely worry free. I'm not knocking the 6.4 but I really like my 6.2.

Ok, thanks guys. I took a quick look when I was at the lot, but guess I wasn't looking in the right spot.

Looking forward to picking up the truck sat.

Front Runner, what mudflaps did you go with? I have the weather tech's on my 08 and will probably do the same on the '11 unless I can find something better.

I got basic "el cheapo" mudflaps from pep boys. They work okay.
