    Trading in a Chevy for an f250 tomorrow. I had a Western V and this truck is coming with a Boss 8-2" Power V.


    is there anything at all that you can share about this set-up? things to do, look out for, did I make a mistake by going to a BOSS? :mechanic:

    You may have made a mistake going w/ the 5.4 and a plow. Just kidding, they're just not known for a ton of power. Should be a reliable addition for you though. Welcome to the Ford gang though and congrats on the new addition.

    I didn't see where you said what motor? Is it a 5.4?

    Very nice set up; and I bet you will love it! We got great gas mileage with our 2008 Ford with the 5.4 but not sure how the 250 and its different gearing will effect that ????? I got 17mpg all the time with mine up here in the woods; in pretty hilly country . Be sure and report in after you get used to it; as to how you compare the Boss V back to your Western V . Good Luck and Congrats on your purchase!

    1/2 to 3/4 ton will affect it greatly. by about 3000lbs... dont expect more than 400k miles out of it and more then 14mpg!!!! :jester:

    thats the bard pusher. long story, but the barn won.

    I'll have a lot of questions about the Boss. Kind of funny, I had to show the dealer how to take the plow off so he could take it in the shop.

    The Dealer drove the truck from the middle of WI down to IN, about 400 miles. The truck read 12mpg average when I took it. Granted they drove 375 on interstate with a plow.
    I didn't get much over 10 with the Chev on a yearly average.

    never trust the digital mpg display, all they do is lie to you. The only way to know is to hand calculate it.

    Good luck with the new truck!
