Super Duty Mod

I'm not sure really what to say, other than the Ranger is gone. Traded the truck in after 10 years and 155,00 miles.

My wife and I placed an order for a brand new F-250 on January 30. On March 13, I saw the truck come off the transport, fresh from the Kentucky Plant. We custom ordered because we wanted a truck with a manual transmission and manual 4wd operation. No truck on a lot in Texas had those 2 key features. So we ordered. Here's how it spec's out.

XLT Crew Cab Short Bed
Sterling Grey
5.4L V8
6 Speed Manual
4.10LS Axle Ratio
4x4 Off Road Package
18" Bright Machined Cast Aluminum Wheels
275/70/R18 Tires
Cab Lights / Bodyside Moldings / Upfitter Switches

So with all that said, on to the pics.
Here's the Order Sheet. (Clicky for bigger pics)

That is one sweet truck. It would have been nice with the 6.4, but I bet it moves pretty good with that 6 speed.

It only has like 150 miles on it, so the whole truck it pretty tight yet.
The 4.10 axle and the 6 speed really make it feel quicker than a 3.73/Torqshift model.

I don't consider it a dog at all.

Nice but unless you live on a farm or haul a trailer all the time why would you need it.
