My 150 got over 70k in the past 2 years. I was towing a lot and felt like I was at the limits for weight and brakes. Engine , 3.5eb, was up to the task but the rest of the truck was struggling a little. Mainly brakes.

So new super duty time. 2017 I got for a good price. Should suit my needs fine.

I like silver as well. Here it is with the old one. Did the brakes and my dad is driving it now.

Awesome truck! I own land and need a truck. I'm kinda holding off for the 2019 Ranger to come out.

Compared to the 150s the 250/350s are beasts.

Looks good!! I moved up to a 3500 diesel out of my 2011 1500. Brakes are not the only thing you will gain. The extra heft of the truck made a big difference in towing. I tow the trailer and not the other way around.

Not sure how the exhaust brake works on the Ford but it is amazing on the Ram. I use it all the time now and rarely have to use my service brakes.

We make the exhaust systems for that truck at my company. The KTP Ford plant is consistently ranking as the best Ford plant in the world. All they make is Super Duty Trucks and Expedition/Navigators on the same line. The Expedition is not a small vehicle but when you see the Super Duty Engine and Tranny on the line the Expedition looks tiny. Same engine and tranny in F-250 as F-450 just the 450 gets beefier axles and suspension.
Very well built trucks.

Looks good. Those things are huge. I just bought a 2018 F150 in the same color.

I switched from Silverados in 2011 and never looked back. Between me and my adult kids we now have 9 Fords. All but three are trucks.

The answer to 80% of BITOG questions: Read the book, follow directions.
Changing oil is not maintenance. Maintenance is the science of inspecting equipment to find and fix things before they break.
