My Drive Impressions In My New F-250 6.4 Long Bed Crew Cab
I have not picked it up yet but it is mine and has temp tags, so I took it out for a 30 min drive on sat:
Not used to such a large/heavy truck, I drive a 2000 f-150 5.4 short bed crew cab. I was not impressed with the power, but to be fair i drive a 330 hp mustang I built and my truck and my wifes DOHC 32 valve v-6 taurus.It was decieving cause its hard to hear or feel exceleration cause its so refined on the interior. I could hear the eng but it was darn quiet for a desiel!!! also the handing was tuff for me, prob because i never drove a truck so big, example: taking a tight right turn going fast has never been a prob for me in any of my vech. But I found myself in the other lane. im sure its due to the tires are made for heavy towing, not handling at all. the ride was much stiffer than my f-150(which im sure is to be expected) It was just a whole new experience for me. The interior is fantastic and flawless. The whole truck was almost perfect(I tryed to find something wrong) after 20 min of looking i found the right side of the hood where it latches does not latch completely(needs adjustment).....that was it!!!! Paint was great, no flaw in sheet metal, solid inside and outside. It does look better as a short bed, but i wanted the long bed to tow a 5th wheel in the future. Im just a reg guy and do not drive big trucks like this like you guys do so my impression is prob kinda sissy but i wanted to tell you what i found when i drove it. this truck will definatly be an awsome truck to tow with and looks great and is comfotable as hell. I give it a 10.
YES PICTURES ARE CONING, BUT GO AHEAD AND SAY IT ANYWAYS!!!!
