Got a new TV!

I took the plunge - again! Found a slightly used (~14,500mi) 2006 Ford F250 PSD Lariat loaded just like I would have ordered it if I was buying new. I drove it back from Wisconsin over the Thanksgiving holiday. What an awesome truck! The ride was great, not harsh at all. At highway speeds it was the equal of any gasser I have driven in terms of noise levels. Of course, idle and low speeds its noiser than a gasser. According to the trip monitor I averaged between 19.9 and 20.1 MPG for my 860 mile trip! I utilized the cruise control and usually set it around 62 or 63 mph. It was unloaded (except for me and a backpack and a small rolling piece of luggage). People whizzed past me, but that was ok with me as my right foot enjoyed the vacation! Will post a pic once I wash her up some. If it's possible to love a truck I love this one!

Congratulations on your new 250. You are now prepared to do some serious Airstream towing. Drive it safe and hope see you on the road.

Sounds like you got yourself a great truck! Wait until you tow with it. That's where it really shines. Does it have the tow command system? Post some pics!
