2011 f450 is little diff. from 2010 f450 (let alone lexus,lol), which if your researching you know what i'm talking about.
It still has wide track,which turn 6 ft tighter than 2011 f350.
If you don't need the pulling power of the f450(close to 24,000lbs), get the f350.
Biggest difference between them in 2011 is the wide track and f450 has 4.30's, BUT the f350 with 3.73's is still rated to pull 17,700 lbs and will have plenty of get up and go,let alone better MPG's!
Its always been told, dually get stuck on wet grass.lmao Thats why you always get 4x4,But with limited slip,it will do lot better than the olden days duallys (a lot of that carries over from generations)
But, i do still believe they are little more squirrelly is snow,because of rear wheels catching more snow/slush (yes, i'm in michigan) Just have to take easy some days,it won't be horrible,but if you drive a skinny wheeled car, then jump in this. Yes, you can tell!
New engine is quieter,drive thru might not be problems anymore,i'm not sure on dual wheels because each drive thru has different widths. Our local taco bell,no way in hell am i getting a dually thru there! (i don't go anyway,makes me sick)
Yes, i would buy this years job 1!!! The urea it uses will make WAY more better for dailing driving. I read
you can let it idle for 24hrs with no problems. The only one reason that i would wait, is end of year rebate to save a few extra 1000.00 possibly! But if they come out and its a huge hit...good luck!
Reason i think not to worry, because LOTS of people have such a strong dislike on there diesels because the 6.0 and 6.4's, so they are sitting back waiting to see what happens this time! lol
FORD knows this! If they produce and have problems this time (again) They are going to loose So many sales!! I think its going to be reversed,unless ford wants to loose there arse!!!
SO, i say they are going to get it right...right out of the box
(i do believe there will be a few small TSB's,but nothing major,maybe some reprogramming of ECM or maybe Sticking gas metal on floor mat...
couldn't help myself on that one,my wife owns a prius)
I also heard Job 1's will take a little extra longer to get, they are supposely doing extra quality control on everything. I heard a Month extra
So, in ending I'm hoping MY 2011 f350 drw 4x4 lariat Will not be a month late now! But..i'd rather be a month late...than pissed off from crap going wrong.
