Well i was looking at the 08 f-250's with the new motor. And it was 10,000$ more for an xlt for what im getting this for. This has the 5.9L turbo deisel and since diesel is the cheapest gas here in vegas no worries.

They say untill 150,000 miles it still cheaper to drive a gas truck due to the extra maintenance and having to poor in so much oil!

yea the deisels definately take a lot more oil theres no doubt about that. But the company i work for takes care of the maintanence on my trucks because i use them for work so often and then any gas used for hauling around equipment / materials is documented with reciepts and reimbursed on my checks every week. But yea, 5 qts compared to like 14 is a lot 3 oil changes in 1!

the tread design on a mud grappler is the foot print of an alligators claws.
