Your bubble is the only one busted. And yes it is stock and if you drive 55 on a two lane road it will get 25 MPH. The most milage I've gotten out of one tank of fuel is 665 miles but that's driving a combination of insterstate, town and two lane combined in one trip. I'm not getting into a pissing contest with anybody here; I'm just telling you what my truck will do if you don't get in a hurry. I've owned Dodge's with Cummings diesel with autos and standards and I'm telling you that the Ford will outpull them time and time again with fewer trips to the shop and you don't have to listen to all that rattling either. If you like Dodge trucks, that's your perrogative but don't try to tell me what I know to be the truth about my trucks. I never said that I got nine hundred miles out of a tank of fuel; you put those words into my mouth not me. You inserted something into my advice that wasn't there. All you have to do is look at the statistics. The F-150 is the best selling vehicle, not just truck, but the best selling vehicle thirty three plus years running. The Super Duty trucks own work and they didn't take any government money when they were handing it out either. I think I'll just keep buying Fords.

Best selling because its the cheapest. And the "rattling" is because the cummins sounds like a real diesel a powerstroke sounds like a gas. You can bad talk the cummins but why is it in semis, tractors, dozers etc, and the powerstroke is in a ford only. And the inline 6 is better than a v8 why do you think tractors and semis run inline 6 cylinders. Six in a row makes them go! If you like the ford good. But the dodge cummins or hemi are tough to beat.

That's real clever "six in a row makes them go". I think I rememeber a slogan too that says something about "Ford tough". Sayings and cheap words don't make you the best; stats do. Dodge may be tough to beat but they are every day by the best in my opinion. And that's what this forum is all about, my opinion and yours. Who's right will be decided by actual results and our freedom to choose the truck we like. Ford's are not cheap either. If I wanted a "cheap" truck I'd go buy a GM.

"Ford tough" I thought it was found on road dead or fix or repair daily. Guess we will agree to disagree. We both like are own and that's what makes the world go round. If everyone had the samething it'd be pretty boring. And I like to get people going about fords on here! Some take it better than others

I knew it wouldn't be long before you brought up all of the common acronyms for Ford. There are some interesting ones for Dodge too but I'm not into name calling. I too still own a Dodge truck but it was built back when Dodge had some sense about em. It is a 1947 Power Wagon. It's a one ton pickup with a 230 CI 75 HP six with 583 gears with a PTO winch up front and 9.00x16 Gumbo mudders. It's baby blue with black running boards and fenders. Now that's a truck!

I have two powerwagons, a 1979 and a 2012 and plan on finding a 1974 with a 440
