    I looked up on Western's site and it gives a part number for the Ultra bracket of 31269-1. Is this the same part number for the 2008-2009 trucks? The older ones do not show the -1 on the number.
    Thanks in advance,
    PS I am really liking this new 6.7 Powerstroke.:nod:

    the new mount is different . it is also different if you have a gas truck. the diesel has a spacer for the sway bar. just put mine on 2 weeks ago.

    Thanks for the heads up. I already ordered a new bracket today. I could have bought a used one, crap. Since I switched from Dodge I had nothing for a Ford.

    Ha ha... LOL
    I walked into the Dodge dealer to get parts for my '96 and the shop ERRUPTS with "TRAITOR".. I yelled back, tell your salesmen too make better deals and make it in the USA and I would have bought a new Dodge.

    Thanks. I figured out what you were trying to say, That's where the whiskey figures out what the Miller lite was saying..LOL
    One thing I don't like is the turning radius on this truck and the amount of times you have to turn the wheel to get end to end. The Dodge was way tighter and seemed to take less effort to go end to end. :( Oh and mileage SUX..... 14.9 is my best average in the 1000 miles so far.

    I average 18.5 on the highway with my 2011 DRW with 3.73 gears. Around town if 15.5. I now have 5700 miles on mine and it is just now giving me the 800 miles to empty on the DEF tank.
