purchased a new tow vehicle

Thread starter #2
I purchased a new 2017 0 miles gas f2f50. I paid 30k on the dot. if anyone is interested there is 21 of these same 2017 trucks for that discounted price on auto trader. Statesville North Carolina same truck 2018 is 38-40. the only thing I don't like about it are those wheels. aren't they just beautiful? they look like spare tires. anyhow this is a work truck and now I can take my whole family camping without 2 cars. I'm very pleased with the purchase.
 
Good for you. I have a '15 F-250 gas, and it does the job well. I believe you will be quite satisfied.
 
For a little over $1k you can fix the wheel issue. Eagles are less expensive.

I like it too. Don't spend good money messing with the factory wheels unless you want to jinx it. They look just fine to me. Every time I have ever tried something like that, BAM! it got hit by another vehicle within a year.

I now have 400 miles on it the last 2 days. I'm avg 14.8 mpg. Mostly highway due to the 5 hour drive back. Pulling my trailer for work I'll get 10-11. Pulling my camper I'll get 8.5

That is not too bad for a 379 cu in motor, and the 3.73 should be a good compremise on the rear axle for pulling/mileage too. How does it ride? I heard they have improved the ride on the considerably with the box frame and aluminum body
