Heavy Duty Truck
The F350 Super Duty crew cab can handle just about anything you need it to do. The ride is a little stiff - but hey it's a truck! Turning radius is a little wide - but hey it's a truck! 4wd works great, multiple transmission drive modes will handle most any terrain you'll be on. It'll handle heavy loads in short bed without a problem. Don't expect high MPG - hey it's a heavy truck, so plan for the fuel expense.
mechanics point of view
i own a shop and not even the dealer can fix these things, they send them to me. computor problems up the wazoo. engines only go mabe 150,000 without major repairs. im getting the 2017 models in already, no warrenty. just had to give bad news to two owners this week that they need a new engine or the computors are no longer availible.
What a Beast, the 7.3L gas engine is Awesome!
Lets face it, no one buys a 1 ton truck for good gas mileage but it actually gets better than 14MPG on the highway "not towing" I was a little reluctant buying a gasser over the diesel for towing my 5th wheel, but so far it has performed very well. 6% grades are no issue pulling <12k lbs. The ride is amazing loaded and unloaded and doesn't rattle my teeth out driving around town like my old 2500HD.
