    Picked this beast up last week. 2013 F350 CC/LB, Lariat Ultimate package, and the 6.7 Powerstroke! Averaging 16mpg mixed driving with about 600 miles on it, definitely going to go up the more miles I put on it.

    Ecoboost was nice, much nicer inside than my Dodge ever was, but with my landscaping business growing I needed the larger truck. Got a better deal on this truck with all the options than an XLT, so opted for the loaded one. Plan on keeping it for 10 years so why not spoil myself?

    Anyway here is the pics, I absolutely love the truck. Plans are BackRack and toolbox, just had it tinted yesterday. Maybe a set of train horns and HID's down the road, but thats it. Enjoy!

    I loved mine like that except when plowing driveways, Turning radius of the queen Mary.

    That truck is sweet but I do agree that configuration is a pita to plow driveways with. My extra cab long bed is a pita too. But the truck is sweet and once you go diesel you never go back.

    If I plow with this, definitely no driveways. Strictly parking lots or condo complexes. In talks with a contractor buddy of mine to sub for him this winter doing all commercial and condo complexes, so we will see whether this gets a new Western Wideout in a few months.

    I just picked up my 3rd 6.7 two weeks ago......I wanted gray but settled on black for the 3rd time.
    Between my 011&12, I've had zero problems. I sure you'll be very happy with your purchase.

    in that case, that truck will be very fun to drive while plowing. That truck will be great for parking lots and condo complexes. Enjoy your new truck

    I'm glad to hear that, and from what I've read on other forums guys have nothing but great things to say about the 6.7 motor. I'm looking forward to putting a lot of miles on her in the next decade.

    That truck would look incredible with a Fisher XV2 hanging off the front.

    Good Luck. My regular cab is a pita in driveways. No problem with the 6.7
