Thanks for reading and I appreciate all comments !
I traded to a '17 250 to tow our TB from a '16 150 2.7 to tow our '23 FC.
The first week I thought it was way better than the 150, 4 weeks in I thought I made a mistake, 3 months in and it's an awesome truck again.
-The lariat w/ ultimate package is the way to go, I got the lariat value...
-I would never again get the snow plow or camper package, it's just too rough
-I'd absolutely get the limited slip (not the locking) rear which was not avail in '17
-I would **positively** go the 6.2 / 3.73 gas route again no questions asked
-Parking in lots is never really an issue, it's big but it works
-It's 2" too tall which makes parking in garages tough / impossible
-The 4WD system is too old school to really use even after 3 nor'easters going on the 4th it just sits in 2WD most of the time because the 4WD system is nothing like 4A on the 150.
- If you go with the 18" wheels get the tire upgrade to the Goodyear Kevlar's
- The hitch is an absolute beast
