Default The little diesel that could!!!


Day I brought my baby home

Baby's 1st bath

Figured I'd start out a build thread on my new baby!!! Got it back in September, got a really good deal on it. Going from a '12 5.0 to a '18 3.0 has been a dream so far!!! Taking this kinda slow since family comes first but I'm excited nonetheless.

2018 3.0L Powerstroke Lariat 4x4 with 501a
Current mods are:
Shorter antenna
Husky X-act contour liners
Husky wheel well liners
Husky tool box
Led bulbs for 3rd brake light and liscense plate
5% tint all around including moonroof
rear seat release latch
raptor center wheel caps

Future mods:
power running boards
Husky mud guards
Leveling kit (Bilstein perhaps)
Larger tires (Duratracs or Nittos)
5% tint all the way around
Plasti dip emblems
Led high/low and fogs

Good looking truck.
Nicely equipped with the 501a pkg.
I guess I have all the typical questions of the diesel.
How does it compare to the 5.0 in your opinion?
How many miles have you got on it now? how is the economy?

I really liked my 5.0 but I'm liking the 3.0 more!!! I currently have about 3500 miles on it and I'm running about 20 to 24 mpg depending on how heavy my foot gets. Acceleration is nice and smooth even when I mash on it hard. I just topped off the def tank this past weekend as it was just under half full so I'm getting about a 6000 mile range on the def tank which lines up with what the truck says so I'm happy with that. I see alot of people ******* on the 3.0 but I'm impressed with it.
