    2011 Regular-Cab F-550 and 2012 Extended-Cab F-550. Both with the new 6.7 diesel! FORD did a great job with it, smooth and ridiculous amounts of power.

    Awesome traction hanging onto a 100% grade like that.

    Word to the wise, get the rubber flap for the top of the blades, the amount blow over on the DD v-plows is obnoxious.

    Nice trucks. What's the tare weight of them ? What type of fuel mileage are you getting

    Fuel mileage isn't the best but also not horrible. 10-12 mpg around town depending on how much weight are in them.

    As far a tare weight goes you we load them down pretty good. The smaller one (regular cab) weighs around 10,800 and the extended cab weighs 11,300 or so. Can legally put 4.5 tons in each (little bit more in the smaller one) but they hardly squat and brakes feel great. Have put 8 tons in the smaller one and thats about the limit.

    Are they 4x4 or 2 wd ? What size dump body is on the regular cab and what brand ? 12 mpg's not too bad.
