Only thing I like better about the 2013 is the interior. I think the motor is gutless IMO now maybe exhaust and a programmer will make a big difference. I don't like the shift points..

My 6.0 is WAY more fun to drive
I want to say gearing is the culprit here.

Im guessing you don't have to worry about lift laws? Both of those are great looking trucks! What did you do for suspension on the F350?

What's under the hood of that 79 F100 (if I am right on the year and model)? It looks like a diesel from the tail pipe

Wax the wheels. It will help keep the dust down.

Could be. It's an xlt. I have a canopy with a bunch of tools in it so I'm guessing 500lbs on the back at all times and even without a trailer it still seems to be way underpowered

A turbo ANYTHING will seem
(and usually BE) much more powerful than a naturally aspirated gasser...

and if it has TWIN turbos like the wife's lil v6

You should look into the VelociRaptor mods for the 6.2L. I'm sure that would help quite a bit

The 6 speed tranny takes a lot of getting used to, for me at least. putting it in tow/haul mode made it shift more like i prefer. A programmer will totally change the truck from what i understand, if it does anything like it did for my V10 i would be highly impressed.

I i'm loving the monster of a motor the 6.2 in my f-150 is...trying to wait on a programmer.

Here she is...

Bought this about a month ago. Don't really have a great picture of it but this will do. 2003 F350 XLT 4x4 V10. Came with ~2.5" lift on the front, aftermarket muffler and cold air intake. I've added the SPD Y-Pipe and BFG A/T KOs in 285. I'll probably do a bit more - 5-Star tune for sure - but not a ton. Pretty happy with her the way she is.

Here is mine, 06 F250 CCLB 6.0, MBRP 4"exhaust S&B CAI, and some tuning (not sure what was done, don't have access to PO's records) but she runs good and hopefully will last me a long time ( 179K on the clock)
