The BFG and Toyo are both good tires. The BFG has the edge in rain/snow driving.

I have a 2010 with the 5.4 engine as well. The absolute best fuel mileage is obtained at 50 mph. As you found out, slower = better mileage.

I drive in tow/haul 100% of the time. I would like to be able to program tow/haul as the default setting rather than hitting the button every time I start the truck.

My current ride is a 2010 supercab 5.4 XLT.

My first Ford was a 1997 Ranger with the 2.3L gutless 4 banger. Next, a 2003 Crewcab Longbed 4X4 V10 F350.

Too small. Too big. Just right!!!

I drove the last two (A Ranger and a F350) up to 75,000 miles. My guess is I'll drive this one to about 100K.

I doing the exact small thing: Synthetic oil every 5k.

I plan on having the truck awhile and don't mind over-maintaining it.

If you take care of your stuff, it's cheaper in the long run.

Good choices. The local tire shop here recommends both the Blizzak and the X-ice.

Rather than go for winter tires, I just had the factory tires siped.

There is a set of photos on the other F150 forum showing a guy putting a pipe over the headrest rod, then standing on the back of the head rest in order to bend the rod.

I hate the head rests too....
