AD - If you need a V10 to smoke tires, you need help.

PDad...nice job, looking great. Did they give you a step ladder to get in and out?

Real nice. Great truck. I'm going to be trading in our 04 Denali for the new STS-V, I'm number 2 on the list at my dealer. Then in January were buying the F250 Lariat Diesel.

I only smoked the tires once, just to see. Its an empty pickup, no big deal dont think you need a v10 to do that.
I got the thing with a full tank of gas, down to half now, will have to fill it this weekend.
I only washed it once so far and it has no swirls, the color is close to the Bonne just not as dark.
And yes I need a step ladder to work on the monster, passed a semi today leaving the mill, I looked over at him not up

btw the truck weighs 7500lbs, about 2 bonnes

Nice work there dude lol
I must say, it probally gets better mileage if u drive it better. On the highway its probally closer to 20, i would guess. depedning on the rear end, and gearing.

16-17 MPG flat load/no load in the city. about 19-21 load/no load on the highway....

They're just like the diesels in LBS/FT and HP numbers almost.....But with spark plugs.

I will say I do like the Ford SD'*.......I don't think i could go gas though.....

I've never seen one go bad yet. And why the hell does he feel he needs to run premium?

Pretty much a waste of money right there.
