It handled great without the air bags but, even better now. I had an F150 before this and there's definately a huge difference as far as ability and handling. Since I've added bags to the rear, it's a very noticeable difference. Just about eliminates sway and bounce. As far as mileage, well..it's not as bad as I originally thought it would be. Normal everyday driving, I get about 15 mpg. (mostly highway driving). Drops to about 9-10 mpg when towing. All in all, not bad.

Thinking about switching?

Thanks for the info. My lease will be up as the new 250 redesigns hit the dealers, so yes I was thinking of upgrading. I do mostly around town as my daily driving and get 14 with the F150 EcoBoost, when towing I see 9 mpg. I am definitely looking for the better payload, so might just jump to the 350 in case a fifth wheel comes along in the future.

Here's the "Boss" with her shiny new 2015 F150 3.5 EB Max Tow. Ford has made some nice improvements. We had a 2013 EB, never had three seconds trouble. Nothing.

Nice F150! I work at the plant that makes the aluminum for the new F150! I am holding out for an aluminum super duty!

Thank you! We now have a matching CAP-IT cap on it. Looks pretty sharp! I don't have a decent pic of it yet.
