    Thanks. This truck was actually ordered by someone out in Pennsylvania but reneged on the deal. I saw it on cars.com and told my dealer in Jersey about it. They went and swaped a vehicle and got it for me. Truck is great. Gets 18-20 around town. 20-25 on highway. The 20" wheels make the truck in my oppinion, i like the back up camera, got the dual altenators, FX4, Diesel is so quiet and its real heavy duty. The guy who ordered didnt get sync or sirius, my only complaint. Yea, gonna either put an 8.5' fisher hd or 8.5 xtreme vee

    Very nice truck. I'm jealous! If you are going to put a yellow blade on it, I sure hope it is a Fisher. Don't ruin that beautiful truck with a Meyer!

    Nice truck. An 8.5' Xtreme V would be awsome on that truck.

    Congrats on the truck. After you get a few miles on her the mileage will go down. Mine started about like yours and now I'm getting 15-16 in town and 18-20 hwy. Still very good number considering the emissions crap. I've only put 2,000 miles on the truck so far. I plan to remove the emissions b.s. after 10,000 miles or so. Voids the warranty but upper 20s for mpg on the hwy is a nice trade.

    Good luck either way.

    Here is a start... The supplemental heater is nice in what cold we've had in the recent week. Snowplow prep is a joke on the fords. If you have the camper package you have heaver springs to begin with is what I was told. Add timbrens up front and you will be good.

    You'll love it, I have just about 2300 miles on mine and like it more every time I drive it.

    $3,000.00 for sat radio and a nav system what a waste, hope you didn't order that. Let me guess thats the sticker off of your new truck....................:laughing:

    Where's the pics?

    Best of luck with it, I love mine!. I certainly dont get the mileage you mention out of mine, I get 18.5 to 19 at 75 mph, and around town I get 12-14, all that has been with the ac on, so I will see how it does in the cooler weather. But I love driving this truck, you will to. The power is awesome!

    Thanks Grassman. Lets see some pics of your truck. $78,000 holy crap! I have a feeling mine won't be quite as nice. I was told unless you get the snow plow prep a plow will void warranty. What does the FX4 package include?

    and yes if you dont have plow package it will void the warranty. Its only like 55 bucks. Worth getting dual altenators too, they are only like 50 bucks extra as well.
