That's the low side of what I get @ 68mph if I'm dealing with a stiff head/cross wind. Cross wind seems to hurt more than a head wind. Sunny 75*f day with no wind is running 70mph will ring up ~21mpg...

The 14' isn't in the same class as the Ecoboost, its barely competition for the 5.0l! Co-workers was a bit too proud of his new 14' screw 5.3l and his ego got deflated by my 5.0l scab.........

A little over optimistic I think. I'm wondering if ford is only going to switch one plant at a time and offer a 2015 "heritage edition" like they did in 04'

Generally on an identical truck the Max Tow adds 340# payload according to fords fleet site. So if you check out trucks at a local lot add 340# to a non-max tow to get a good estimate.

There price seems about right, around here you can get a new fully optioned 13' XLT 4x4 scab for 28,500 or a Screw 4x4 for 32,500. A used 11' screw for 27500 seems about right.

I'd be more worried if it didn't use any oil in 4000 miles! A quart every 4000-6000 on a modern V8 is what I'd consider prefect. Not really considered a problem, as a mechanic, until its using more...
