Been a F150 guy for many years now, but finally picked up my Super Beauty. Its a 2012 F250, cc/sb/4x4, 6.2L, well equipped xlt. White in color, now sitting on Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 315/70R17's, measure close to 35".

Coming from a 2011 F150 Ecoboost, there are some huge differences between the trucks, but strangely, the Ecoboost wasn't any better on fuel than this 6.2 has been so far... I'm happy with the swap.

I thought the EB's did better than that.

I guess it's just all hype with the extra fuel economy and same towing. Well you will enjoy your new truck, I know I do. And like Matt said pics would be nice too.

The Ecoboost should get better than what mine did. Some annoying news today, the sales manager at the dealer was driving my traded Ecoboost for a few days and was convinced that it had something wrong with it. They put 3 of their best heads on it, spent quite a bit of time on it and determined that the PCM was pretty much fried... Parts of me wish they had been so thorough when I was complaining of my issues. Other parts of me are happy to have the F250, though it will never be easy on fuel, it has the capacity I'll need at times.

I will try to get pictures today!!
