Ain't 'progress' wonderful....

I believe the DEF cost will be miniscule compared to the purchase of a TV and diesel fuel... <$5/gal... won't be long and it'll be in every gas station and auto parts store in the USA.

Now, the question:

With a TV like that one, including such towing capacity, anti sway feature, brake controller,... do I need to add those special hitches, stabilization bars and sway controller mentioned all over this forum? or will the "as built' hitch suffice?

I ditched the clunky stuff two years ago when I went to the F350. I know many people are ALWAYS going to recommend the WD and while it can't hurt, it just becomes a matter of how much and how far you travel. Some will use WD to go fill up the propane bottles down the street and some run without them when they should not. Its going to be a decision you make based on your gut feeling and experience on the road.

For what it's worth, I tow a 34' w/hensley with a F250 6.4 and hardly realize it's back there.
With the new 6.7 F250 and 375 horse you'll be able to do all you need, plus they offer a 331 rearend, which will give you better fuel mileage. BTW I work at the plant where they are made and they are totally awesome. When they are accelerating they are barely louder than gassers

If the 6.7 turns out to be another turd, ford will have no one to blame but themselves this time.
