    Hi There,
    not sure if you still follow the board, just wanted to give you an update on the truck - did 5300 km through BC this summer with my 13,000 lb 5th on tow. Truck performed flawlessly. avg 11.2 mpg (canuck gallons). Love this truck and the 6.2L engine!

    I forget but it has two custom tunes on it. I think it is a SCT. Got from Mike in the 6.2 forum.

    That hitch looks sweet - but man - the price!! I have found that B&W and Pil Rite also make OEM 5th hitched for the Ford 5th prep that work just like the Reese. Have to see what we can find.
    Thanks for all the info - spent the weekend in and out of the house - syncing my phone and playing with things...
    I noticed in one of your posts a while back you mentioned getting a tune and installing it - were you needing more oomph to tow or just playing? How did the engine perform with the tune as compared to stock?
    Did you use the tow/haul when pulling? I've had that on 2 previous trucks, a chev Yukon xl and my dodge, and hated it on both - found that the higher shift points really 'slammed' from gear to gear and made the truck seem very jerky when driving. I guess nothing like hooking up and trying it...
    I'll scan and e-mail you the transfer papers within the next couple of days - thanks for that!

    Hi, so the trip south went great - love the truck. Drives like it's on rails!
    So when we were at the dealership doing the paperwork, we learned hot to go about transferring the EPS you got - I have the forms and everything, if I can scan it to you or fax - just let me know where. There is a transfer fee (which we of course will pay) but Ford won't do anything about transferring it unless we have the 'original purchaser' sign off on the paperwork.
    Looking forward to getting a hitch so I can hook up to our trailer and work the girl!

    Thanks for the reps brother! I'm happy for you and hope your new truck is treating you well. On a side note, I sent them an e-mail the other day asking about the 2013 HD models. I got a response saying they hoped to have the Build and Price feature on the 2013s up and running this week. I'm waiting to see what Ford does about mine before I go shopping some more but I'm looking at them pretty hard.

    So the deal is done - headed to Edmonton tomorrow afternoon to pick her up!
    Did you get the truck undercoated and rust proofed etc? they were trying to sell me the protection package, but I thought you might have already had it done so I passed.
