Buh-bye gasser, hello diesel!

After much deliberation, several test drives of the Big Three's offerings, a sleepless night or three, a review of finances, and finally convincing myself that "screw it, for all I know I'll be dead next week anyway" is a perfectly sensible method for making big decisions...DW and I have agreed to spend way too much money on a brand new 2017 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab with the 6.7L Power Stroke Diesel.

Should have delivery by EOW if the dealer can get the spray in liner taken care of.

Then I just need to get hitch rails installed so I can find out once and for all why everyone says "Once you go diesel, you'll never go back!"

Suffice it to say, I don't expect to sleep the next few nights either.

I'm more than a bit envious. Your diesel will have about 340,000 fewer miles than mine.

Congrats on the new Super Duty! Beautiful truck. The 6.7 has all the power you'll ever need. You'll soon realize the truth behind the cliche, "once you go diesel....."

Gee, I dunno there, Force. You might be buying too much truck - Said no one, ever.
We have about 44k on ours and I couldn't imagine towing without it.
