It probably gets better mpg then a one ton pulling a comparable load. ??

If you are referring to my Pete, I assume your joking, HDT's are setup with an automatic air leveling system to maintain the proper driveshaft angles regardless of load. I think the angle the photo was taken at makes it look like its sitting low in the rear.

If your refereeing to my Pete, I get an average of 7.7mpg at any speed I want to drive it and go up mountains at speeds a hopped up one ton can only dream about. My truck with Smart Car on deck weighs 23K, the trailer loaded comes in at around 21K.

Well - After 100+ K Miles on my 2010 F250 5.4 - trade in day finally arrived...

The old Blue Monster seemed to be getting a little tired and my oldest started to outgrow the back seat. I loved that truck though.

So now we've got a new-to-us 2017 F250 6.7 Diesel with 19K on the odometer... One "test" tow under my belt so far to check out the WD setup... Clean bill of health from my local Ford dealer... Heading on our maiden voyage up to Lake Erie in a couple of days for a long weekend. Here's praying we have the same great luck and service with the new "Silver Streak" as we did with our old friend the Blue Monster...

Thanks! I'm already inventing excuses to drive it. [emoticon] The Ride quality alone is amazing - to be fair the 2010 probably could have benefited from new shocks if we had decided to keep it.

As for towing. I've had my eyes opened - that really is all I can say.
