Just special ordered my first F250 with 6.2L. I am very excited about it and will be getting it within the next two months. I was just wondering if anyone had some good tips or suggestions for breaking it in? Thanks
Congrats on the order! What are the details of the truck?
As far as break in, this is from the manual:
BREAKING-IN YOUR VEHICLE
Your vehicle does not need an extensive break-in. Try not to drive
continuously at the same speed for the first 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of
new vehicle operation. Vary your speed frequently in order to give the
moving parts a chance to break in.
Drive your new vehicle at least 1,000 miles (1,600 km) before towing a
trailer. For more detailed information about towing a trailer, refer to
Trailer towing in the Tires, Wheels and Loading chapter.
Do not add friction modifier compounds or special break-in oils since
these additives may prevent piston ring seating. See Engine oil in the
Maintenance and Specifications chapter for more information on oil

Just ordered a 250 lariat gasser. The sales story this year from one dealer is that the snow prep adds a bigger fan for $80. The 200A alternator was included in another pkg I got. I guess that they are selling as many as they can make otherwise they would make the selection of options less secretive. I finally went thru a broker because he was the only guy I could find that even pretended to care what I wanted and bothered to research questions and get believable answers.
