Bye bye 2008 Ford F550, hello 2012 Ford F550!

So he got an upgrade, and a much needed one! We had the 2008 F550 for less than a year, and it has been in the shop half the time for all kinds of issues. About $15k was spent fixing that old truck and it had problems when we gave it in. It had no park lights, and a couple other things, not to mention it was on its 3rd 6.4 Diesel engine. He gave it in with nearly 250,000 KMS on the body, no clue on the engine. Not gonna miss it!

The 2012 F550 is awesome so far! Looks beautiful, wayy more beautiful than the 2008, has a much better front end, interior and practically no rust....The seats are much more comfortable and the interior is more elegant! This truck has 50,253 KMS, haven't started it yet, but i'm pretty sure the 6.7 will haul tons of *****.

Here is the last picture I had of the 2008:



Here are some pics of the new beast:

Leather Bucket seats- Love, and more comfy (wish the seats were heated)

Interior colour- Love, easier to keep clean

Front end look- Love

Lack of rust- Love

Low mileage and hope to be less problematic- Even better!!!

Damn I love this truck, and I haven't even started it up myself...

I love fords new anti-gravity option. Makes towing and hauling a breeze. Expensive but worth every penny in my book!

Looks good. An upgrade is always nice.

Second generation DPF emissions technology is more refined. You will enjoy with all the low speed idling you do.
