    SO, after a bad trip towing my camper due to continued transmission issues, I traded in my 2011 F250 6.2l and picked up this 2012 F350 6.7l. To this point, I have no problems and love the power!

    I think so. A nice Western Wideout would be perfect for it. Contractor friend of mine is trying to expand his work so I will probably sub for him this winter.

    Love the truck, thanks! The diesel is sooo much better than the gas. More power for everything, even just every day driving. Not to mention, I was averaging 12mpg with the gas 6.2 and averaging 18mpg with the diesel. I can't complain...................

    Nice truck, what trans issues were you having? Aren't the transmissions identical between the two?

    My 2011 went through the flash and had a selenoid replaced. My last towing trip, It struggled to get to 65mph going down hill, towing 7,000lbs. I also spent the trip in 4th gear, averaging 5mpg! I had it in the dealer prior and they kept telling me it was operating as designed. After this, I was told there was more TSB's that had come out. I said screw it!

    Yes, they are the same but Ford made some changes in the 2012's and not all of the '11's had problems. Also, being a 2012 and, according to the OASIS, it has not undergone any warranty work!

    Now that you have a diesel I'm sure you will never go back. You may pay more upfront but the resale is always there. The new ones are so quiet people that don't know better think it's a gas.

    Nice looking truck.
