I had one(7.3,6.0,6.7). I tow a 10k skid steer rarely and a 5k toy hauler. I like solid axle, manual 4x4 and SD's. Almost went with the 6.2 but gladly went EB. I'm done with newer diesels now. I think it would be a good fit for many. We also know that the 2016's will be lighter too. The EB will do anything the 6.2 will for me.

that's the thing about the newer diesels... if you're only keeping it for the warranty period, fine, but after that, if something goes wrong, you can't afford to fix it. I think each injector is about $250, and the labor is intensive. Combine that with diesel costing more than gas, and the $8000 upgrade to the diesel, and basically, you have to NEED a diesel to warrant buying one.


That said, the power they put out is nuts!!!

I have a 2015 F350 PSD on order. If there was a 5.0L Ecoboost available, I would have been all over it as I am coming from a 2011 F150 Ecoboost.
