    Thumbs up Good Bye F150 and Hello F250

    Well, as most of you know, I picked up a 2011 F450 July 2010. I had the intensions to sell my F650 Super Crewzer and tow my Weekend Warrior with the new 2011 F450. After towing it a couple of times and getting comments that it looked like a ranger hooked up to the trailer, which is 47' long, I had second thoughts about the selling the F650. I ended up turning the truck over to my dad to replace his 2008 F450 and have been driving a 2011 F150 Eco-Boost for the last year. Over the 4th of July weekend I decided it was time to get back in to a F250 PSD as my daily driver. With the incentives and rates available I couldn't resist.

    So, I am the proud new owner of a 2012 Ford F250 Crew Cab 4x4 Lariat. Have been driving the truck since Sunday and the big grin on my face still won't go away. The mileage these trucks get is just incredible! My F150 Eco-Boost was getting me 18.5-19 MPG driving up and down the Cajon Pass every day and I though that was pretty good. With only 350 miles on the new truck I'm showing 17.5-18 MPG.

    Here's a few picture:

    Title on the F450 still has my name on it and has since day one :-)

    It's good to be back driving a PSD as a "daily driver" again. I just hope diesel doesn't get to $5.00 per gallon again....
