New F250 Pics

Now that Lent and Easter are over, I decided to take a few pics of the truck.
Take it easy, guys!

Chris, what size tires do you have on there? We're eventually going to change out the stock tires on our F250 and we'll definitely be going up in tire size.

Thanks for the compliments, fellows.
Keeping this thing clean isn't quite as easy as the Ranger. There's a lot more sheet metal to wash, dry, wax, & buff. I'm about 6 feet tall, and I have to get out my little step stool to wash the middle of the hood and windshield. But it's all good.

I jumped up to a skinny 35" tire on my factory 18" wheel. They're LT285 75 18E Wrangler MT/R Kevlars. I ran them stock heigth for maybe 6 months with no rubbing before I installed the Icon lift.

Your F250 has the coil spring front suspension, right? Everything I've read says 2005+ Super Dutys can swallow a 35" tire stock, but I'm not so sure about a 35x12.5. It might be too wide and rub the radius arm at full steering lock.

Hopefully you don't have the 18" wheels- tire choices are kind of limited in that size.

Yep, my 250 is coil sprung. I'm not sure what size rims the truck has, they're Alcoas, which is about all I know.

I'm thinking I might go with 33" tires with no lift, or 35" tires with 2" spacers in the front. Money plays a part in everything however, so we'll see what happens. I've been researching the chrome/billet grilles to replace my ugly '05 grille and they're damn expensive... hopefully it will look better to me with just the new tires.

I've wondered what do the switches do? Are they just not wired up to anything stock?

They are called UpFitter switches and are prewired from the factory. Switches 1&2 are rated for 30amps. Switches 3&4 are good for 15amps.

There is a bundle of 4 wires under the steering column. All you have to do is look in the manual as to which color wire relates to its switch, strip the insulation off, and connect it to your 12v accessory. The only wire you have to run is the ground/chassis wire. It's super easy- I wired up my KC lights to a factory switch in about an hour.

The 5.4L is better than many people give it credit for. I has to rev more than the old pushrod motors and certainly more than the diesels, but it is suprisingly capable for a small block. The 6-speed manaul transmission is incredible for starting loads off on a hill with it's low 1st gear. I think it's a great base engine, honestly. It has pulled along a 16,000lbs GCWR at 65mph in 5th gear pretty easy here in TX; mountains would be harder for sure though. The platform is super stable too, just like you'd expect from a Super Duty.

Mileage isn't something to write home about- I'm seeing 12.5mpg in the winter time and bout 13.5+ in the summer time. Towing mileage is generally poor, like 9-10mpg. Thena again I'm riding on 35" tires and pushing around 7000lbs of truck.

My mileage is about the same on stock tires. Have you heard of anybody with a tuner getting better mileage? I was thinking of taking the tuner off of my Ranger and getting it programed for the F250.

I recently bought an SCT X3 with custom tunes from 5 Star Tuning. It made a big difference in throttle response because my truck has the drive by wire lag. The tuner recalibrates it. Just that almost made it worth the cost. I can notice extra power running the 93 performance tune.

For a manual transmission like I have, I still not sure if the cost can be completely justified since I don't have an automatic trans to tune like many others. But eliminating the drive by wire lag and picking up some extra power is nice. If I did pick up any fuel economy, it's very small and not worth mentioning.

Cows and hay occasionally- that's where the bigger loads come from.
Other times a 19' center console
But most often just 2-3 ATVs on a 16' flatbed trailer.

When it comes down to it, I'd tow any of those things with a 1/2 ton and have many times before. The only thing is that the cattle trailer can get squirrly behind a lighter truck when the animals get to moving in the trailer and hitting cross winds at the some time. The F250 is just so much more stable.
