I loved my '13 Ecoboost Platinum but two weeks ago I traded it in on a '17 F-350 DRW Ecoboost but only a single turbo!!
Needed it to tow our 371 Fuzion 5th wheel..only 600 miles on it so I need about 400 miles to tow the heavy trailer. Love it so far and its my daily driver. :D

Congrats on the new ride! That will surely get the toy hauler where it needs to go.

I've been putting off getting a dually for 2 yrs and finally bit the bullet. Funny thing is that some of the '17 loaded 150's listed for more then the dually!

Man I freaking love those new 17 super duties sooooo much!
Absolutely the best looking trucks on the road no question.... In my opinion.

I went to look at a leftover '16 F-350 which I could have gotten a real good price on but after driving the '17 wife and I were sold on the new version. 440 hp...925 ft lbs of torque and with a 4.10 rear it hauls azz for a large vehicle. Averaging right at 16 mpg for the first 600+ miles so I can live with that. Not a bad ride either for such a large vehicle with the 176" WB...48 gallon fuel tank and a 7 gallon DEF tank so I can run awhile before fueling up. Need to put some mud flaps on the rear for my next mod!

Wow! That's quite an upgrade. Congrats on the new ride. We need a pic when she's all hooked up.

I bought a new 20K Curt fifth wheel hitch but need to change back to the stock pin box on the trailer before I can hook up to the truck. May even have to make some more adjustments so I need to wait for son in law to help on the weekend. I'll take some pics with the rig hooked up.

Awesome, I'm jealous. Wish I had the cash to make the same move. Good luck with the new ride.

Thanks Tony...before we broke something or even worse towing with my son in laws F-250 we bought the dually. Truck listed for 66.5K and actually less then some loaded out '17 F-150's they had. Got a good trade in on my '13 and they came off the sticker on the new one a decent amount with hardly any incentives so we made the deal. Lucky I drove semi trucks years ago because its going to be my daily driver also. I live out in the country so its not that bad and lots of duallys running around here anyway!

Getting 17.5 mpg on this current tank of fuel...pretty amazing for a truck this large. Installed a BakFlip MX4 cover this morning with the help of my 16 yr old Grandson.

You got a brodozer that's not a brodozer because you use it for non-brodozer stuff.

Nice!
