Well I done gone and did it. Traded my 2011 FX-4 5.0 for a 2013 Eco. I can tell you that I miss the deep rumble of a V/8 engine but I'm having a blast with the Eco. I'm running 305/55/20 Nitto Trail Grapplers and while I love the appearance I'm not too excited about the tire whine. I came close to swapping them out for some Michelin AT's but have decided to stick with them. I'm running a 2 1/2 inch level, custom painted hood and a Livernois Tuner. I just returned from a trip to WV and ran a few Mountaineer back roads. The truck performed flawlessly but gas mileage stunk.. thanks to the Nittos. I'm getting 14-15 MPG around here so that is about 2-3 MPG less than the 5.0 with stock Pirelli's. I live in Johnston, SC and am a genuine country boy (actually old man). Now, if any of you have any suggestions as to how to deal with a crappy NAV System I would appreciate it. Mine jumps around all over the place. It tracks perfectly then suddenly routes me off course then runs parallel to the route I'm on. I'm not going to throw away my Garmin just yet. I look forward to gaining more knowledge about our beloved Ford Eco. Oh yes, I am retired Navy and a staunch Florida Gator fan. Go Gators.
