Be sure the front end is in good shape, we've had our 2018 in twice now for the death wobble and we only have 40k on it. I do think the ride is pretty good and other than the death wobble thing it's been a solid truck. Gas mileage isn't great but it is a 3/4 ton truck with a gas engine so we weren't expecting much.


Good call. I'll add that solid axle trucks like the Ford and Ram are both susceptible death wobble. However this issue is certainly not prevalent, nor common. Even with higher mile front ends with wear on them.
GWolfe, your issue is not the norm and there's likely some geometry issue specific to your truck. I've had 1 "new" Ford with DW, back in like 2009. Developed it around 10k miles. And countless other new solid axle trucks with no issue, as well as alot of high milers.

I have a 2016 F250 CC 6.2L 2wd.. We pull a Jayco 27BHS weighting 7500 lbs. We get 8-9 mpg towing and 16 mpg highway running empty. It has been a great truck for a 7500 lb bumper pull. 70,000 on the odo and no problems at all.... Hope this helps...

Thanks guys, seems everyone is pretty happy with these as a TV. I think we have decided to step into the aluminum body style to more closely match our current F150 which I really enjoy. Will take a bit more to save for it but I think we will be happy longer, especially daily driving in Michigan winters...
