    7.3 owners ever regret not getting the diesel?

    Agreed this this thread has been interesting, my original intent wasn’t to bash anyone’s decision, just honestly wondering if others thought the same way i do. I like my 7.3 but after driving the 6.7 HO I think I may order one up, it’s a night and day difference when towing.

    7.3 owners ever regret not getting the diesel?

    I ordered the 7.3 in March of 2021, it got pushed to a 2022 model and for the most part it does what I need and have had no issues (40,000 miles so far) but I drove the new diesel HO and my goodness what a motor, it’s heads and tails above the 7.3 for towing and I’m kind of kicking myself for...

    Tire replacements

    Would like to hear what others have done when replacing the stock tires, mine have 31,000 miles on them, the tread is still ok but they are so loud inside the cab when driving down the road you can’t even have a conversation. I don’t mind the duratracs but open to other options as well.

    What do you consider Financial Success?

    As a young kid I was sure money brought happiness and contentment, as I made money I slowly realized it did neither. It took me some time to figure it out but I came to the realization that if I could make enough money I could use it to “buy” time, so I worked hard for 10+ years, built a...

    New 2023 F250 Lariat Tremor 7.3 owner

    Over 30,000 on my 22 and according to Fuelly my average is 10.3, I’ve tried running in Eco mode, slow acceleration, tow mode etc, nothing seems to make it any better, that being said it doesn’t bother me anymore, I just fill it up every 250 miles or so and keep driving.

    What do you think of your truck after 1 year??

    This is my truck as well, I have the carpet delete, put a topper on it and other than the transmission lurch when shifting into drive I love it. I probably should bring it in To the dealer to fix but I hate going to the dealer and having to drive my jeep. The topper works so good for hunting...

    Insurance Q

    Depending on the state you are in and the insurance carrier you have, you may be able to include the add on options by increasing the value of the truck or adding coverage for extras, (probably based on actual cash value of ad-ons) Some of the carriers I represent allow it and some don’t. This...

    Worst Scenario Imaginable - Uninsured 2022 Truck STOLEN in Houston, TX

    This is correct, having been in the insurance world for the past 15 years 99% of the people I dealt with would be money ahead taking your approach, then there is the 1% that have the catastrophic claim. And don’t get me started on people that try use insurance as a maintenance plan🤦🏼‍♂️

    dull thumping sound

    It does appear to be the same exact shock, the dealer told me that a bunch of them are known to be defective but they supposedly corrected the issue. If it happens again I will order up an aftermarket setup.
