Hello everyone, the title sums it up. My last F250 was an '06 with the 6.0L. It gave me so many issues I swore off of Fords alltogether preferring to drive Toyotas 100k miles with no issues, and then trade them in for a new one. After seeing the new Tundras, with a turbo V6, I couldn't bring myself to even look at them. Always loved the CC F250, having owned a '91 7.3L non-turbo, a '96 7.3 Powerstroke, and lastly the '06 6.0L. Realizing that the 6.7L platform has been in the truck about the same time I've stayed away from Ford, decided to test drive several used ones. Almost impossible to find the long wheel base trucks new, so decided on a '20 Lariat Ultimate to drive while waiting for the new order to be built. Really miss the torque that these trucks have, always smiles when you get into it and you are pressed back into the seat. Glad to find a board with such depth in knowledge and membership.
