bought one because:

I have had both vehicles as service vehicles in the oil field. Every dodge I've had the front end falls apart and the driver seat wears down to the metal frame. Its poorly built and the interiors rattle after the first 4-6 months driven on lease roads. Super duty is far superior in every category in my experiences with both trucks.

Cost of diesel

Can't Get Much Better For An All Around Truck. — Not much I didn't like other than the cost of diesel but that is offset by the surprising 16 miles a gallon the truck gets. Very comfortable inside and the body has great lines; very versatile functionion as truck or family vehicle.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Bad A$$ — One BAD A$$ rig! Needs some blemish fix ups but is no big deal. She had all the power anyone needs. 6.4 models have the nicest interior of any ford truck. Also has some nice exterior work done to it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

I found this vehicle to be very comfortable on long trips, it has pulled a 30 foot 5th wheel across country.  Great sound from the stock radio.  The seats were comfortable and spacious.

Cons

with any large truck, the diesel fuel mileage wasn't the greatest.  that's about it, the fuel.

Great Truck, Great Long Distance Ride, Very Comfortable Vehicle To Own. — we enjoyed this vehicle because of the power it provided us during our travel days. We found that this f250 diesel had the get up and go to get out of traffic situations and had plenty of power to climb hills of California and mountains of Western US. I would say the fuel mileage was the down side, but I found I would rather spend the fuel money and ride in a comfortable cabin.

Very Nice Truck, Love It, Work-a-holic — I really like this truck, it does everything I need it to do, hauls a**, pushes a**, reliable truck which I use for almost everything including emergency response as a volunteer FF/EMTP. I said since it doesn't have SuperCab then lets throw a tool box onto it!

Pros

The grill guard rocks!! It scares the crap out of morons in little Hondas who try to cut me off when I'm driving it. My dad loves his truck. =]

Cons

It's too plain. It's pretty cheap. It doesn't have a CD player, it doesn't have back speakers, and the front basic lights are very cheap looking.

It Is Big.......very Very Big..... — Overall, for the price my dad paid for it, it ain't a bad truck. His friends drool over that thing(especially the grill-guard). However, I don't particularly enjoying driving this truck due to poor acceleration, and difficulty to maneuver, but then again, what do you expect in a big truck?

Love At First Sight! — Everything about this vehicle is amazing from the 6.4L OHV V8 Turbo-Diesel Power Stroke Engine to the Quad Captain's seats to the enormous trunk/covered bed. This truck has all the prerequisites of a cattleman's truck with the addition of luxury and comfort.

Pros

This is a great road trip vehicle.  My wife loved our F150 so much for traveling we always took that instead of her Cadillac.  The F250 is better still.  More room than most will ever need and great handling no matter what the weather or road conditions.    

Cons

Fuel mileage isn't good but if careful and not too aggressive with the power pedal reasonable for a truck this size.  Keep in mind this is a very heavy brick aerodynamically speaking.  It is not a vehicle for someone wanting to save on fuel costs.  I've gotten 19 hwy by not using cruise control and keeping in the 60-65 MPH range.  That of course is under best of conditions. Most owner of this type of vehicle are not expecting excellent mileage.   A programer may help this but I don't like messing with stuff I don't know anything about.   The GPS option is an expensive add that I possibly will fore-go on my next vehicle as it requires periodic map updating through Ford and that isn't reasonably priced in my opinion.  I do like that I don't have to remove a GPS unit from the dash and hide it every time I leave the truck somewhere though.  Guess that's a trade off.

The Best Truck I've Owned — Performance with the sequential turbos is awesome. Won't beat a gas truck but all just raw power. Ride comfort is way above expectations for any truck. Build quality is I believe above most other vehicles IMO. The appearance inside and out beats the competition across the finish line in every case. Compare the top three trucks in the market and I believe first looks prior to test driving will go to Ford. After the test drive you'll be sold and after driving this truck for 4 years, I think it will be hard to find another vehicle to measure up to the ride comfort and utilitarian benefit of this truck.
