Toying with the idea for the last two years and finally pulled the trigger on this Lariat...we'll use this to pull our 371 Fuzion toy hauler with. White Gold with Black interior...4.10 gearing and a 48 gallon fuel tank!!

48 gallon fuel tank!!
With diesel, that sure sounds like a $100 fillup..........

When you need DEF, save some money and buy it at the pump at a truck stop - it's 2 to 3 times more expensive in gallon jugs. It's about $2.80 a gallon at Pilot.

The '17's have a 7 gal DEF tank so it cut's back on the times you have to fill it. Son in law has a F-250 so we'll may buy it in bulk.

A 55 gallon drum of DEF is 200 bucks, cheaper just to go to the truck stop and get it at the pump.

Well after the first week I can tell you this truck is amazing and I haven't even pulled the 5th wheel camper with it yet. Rides smooth for a large truck and the fuel mileage is 15.5 so far on average with only 350 miles on it. Waiting to get the 5th wheel hitch installed Tuesday and then have to put about 600 more miles on it before towing anything heavy. Really impressed with the '17 Superduty so far!

i had a 350 Dually as my last truck and I miss it. My next will be a full sized F series. The 150 is like a car in comparison.

Just got back from the first camping trip with the new truck. Very impressed with it...loads of power and pulls the 14K pound camper easily.
