Just drove an EB F150...

And I was very impressed. I drove one about a year and a half ago during their test drive event, and this one drove home the impressions that I got back then.

It's a freaking animal! I've had a 6.4L and a 6.7L diesel Super Duty since my last F150 and I liked the way this drove much better. The low end power with virtually no turbo lag really put a smile on my face. My relatively light-footed test drive achieved only about 15.5 MPGs on the rural highway drive, but I would guess that this would improve as it got broken in.

I may be joining the EB club in the next year or two.

Welcome Tom!

If you're still pulling a heavy trailer an HD F-150 with an EB is a common piece of equipment. You'll likely have to order a beast like that.

Don't expect the MPG to blow you away, its not that much better than previous models of F150's... However, the power and thrill of driving it makes it a worthwhile purchase

I tell everyone that is considering getting one, If your just thinking about getting one and not really ready then don't go to the dealer and take one for a test drive. You will be driving it home!!!!!
