    Nice truck, red on red. What kinda gas mpg do you get with the 8.1?

    Thanks guys!!!! 9 MPG or so seems to be what the truck gets! Lots of power...or at least for me going from my old 350! Just got it! Love the truck. Took the plow and salter off of my old truck. I will post a pic of that too!

    Great Truck

    I think that is the perfect set up for plowing, great vision and good turning. When you get an 8.1 I don't think fuel is your main concern.

    yea anyone that buys an 8.1L isnt looking to save on gas. its one powerful reliable engine tho. honestly idk what the point of the 6.0L was when u could get an 8.1L b/c the 6.0L isnt much better on gas.

    i got 9mpg with my 8.1L my dad gets 10.5mpg with a 6.0L. and i ad a lot more power. the funny thing is now im running a 7.4L (454) getting 13mpg and my dad is still getting 10 or so.

    Slick ride. I'm partial to Fords, but I really like any 2500. I really like that dark red, and that Boss looks perfect on it too.

    Good luck with it!

    Your old truck looks mint. I had a 1994 3500 with the 6.5 diesel. It might have been the best truck I ever owned. 6 years of hard plowing and I only spent $2500 on it.

    That older truck's a nice-lookin' rig, too.

    I like how you angled the shot of your old truck. Reminds me of something...just don't know what...
