I traded my '97 F250 CC PS for a '12 F350 CC with the 6.2. The only thing I miss about my '97 is the wing windows. Good luck with the purchase and I hope you end up as happy with your new truck as I am with mine.

Yep I have been driving it for about a month love the torque lots of power
Way bigger than my F150 the rear camera comes in handy for hooking up to my trailer i;m getting around 14.5 MPG the dealer said it would get better as the truck breaks in but i;m OK with the numbers so far

Cheers
