Who is buying new ‘17+ Super Duties?

i had a long conversation with a friend about our SD’s and who drives them, and why. It was an interesting conversation, and I’m curious to see the results!

I'll admit, at least for now, that mine is a pavement princess for the most part, except for camping and trips to the lake via dirt roads. Possible plans for a sled and a 5'er down the road. Stepping back into a truck, I knew I wanted a 1-ton again. No complaints on the truck so far, 8,5xx kms on the odo.

Mine is strictly for pleasure. I take it on trips with the family to all the kids travel sporting events up and down the east coast. Plenty of room inside for my 6'+ tall kids and all their gear in the back. I don't really haul, tow or off road much but its good to know i can if needed. I have had a company 4x2 XL SD since 2002 so I bought a luxury version for play. You can't beat it for ride, performance and appearance.

Mine is for towing my Airstream, but mainly for the miles I accumulate. Resale is a win if you keep it.

Primary purpose for ordering the dually is to tow 18,500# gross 5th wheel. Additional rationalization is to tow a 35' offshore sport boat. Likely will also see duty towing a large, enclosed 4-place snowmobile trailer...the 3/4 ton Suburban is getting on in years.

Ours is used primarily to tow our toy hauler and/or dirtbikes. 11k miles on it currently, and 2500 have been towing, and probably another 2000 with 3 dirt bikes in the back. The wife uses it as her driver, and I'll drive it when I'm not on my motorcycle.

I'll use it to tow my 20', 6k lbs race trailer to half a dozen events per year, plus some trips to the shop...otherwise it's my daily driver, used for commuting in to the city for work. Pure excess

Just for daily driving with homeowner duty occasional hauling. Could easily get by with F150 but prefer solid front axle and a big fan of the 6.2. Very little price difference between 1/2 and 1 ton new also so it makes my decision easy.

My current F250 is a daily driver in the winter and will be driven as needed in the warmer months to trailer my race cars and race motorcycles to tracks around the country. My wife and I will also use it regularly to pull a our travel trailer to campgrounds from Alaska to Florida and points between. I love the looks, technology, interior, ergonomics, and everything else about the new Superduty. Ford literally knocked this one out of the park. The competition isn't even in the same league anymore. I love that the entire truck is 100% Ford designed and built. No outsourcing of the engine and transmission.

Regarding political persuasion (you asked), I should state first and foremost that the political class as a whole is comprised of some of the most vile, duplicitous, self-interested, and loathsome characters to be found anywhere outside the confines of our prison system. The individual freedom and personal liberty upon which this country was founded is under continuous assault by those who wish to accumulate power at the federal level for their own malevolent interests and desire to exert control over others. Everything has become politicized because the tentacles of government authority slither into every nook and cranny of our lives, from the toilets we buy to the vehicles we love. I volunteered to serve my country for six years in the Marine Corps as a scout sniper because I felt a patriotic obligation to do so. I believe that the government that governs least governs best. In a truly free society, government should be viewed as a necessary evil and it's power should therefore be as limited as possible.

I moved up from an F250 gasser to pull a larger fifth wheel. I'm in total awe at the technology in this new truck.

Not to start any political arguments, but I find the breakdown of liberals and conservatives interesting. I'm going to the Prius website and see if all the liberals are over there.

Bought it to tow my 10k lb travel trailer. It actually sits in my driveway during the week while I use an old car to commute.
