    I'll take one if I can get a 6 spd. manual... And no, I don't mean an electronically shifted auto- I mean a clutch to push on with my foot, and a floor shifter with a big man-sized knob on it!!

    My 2004 F-350 6.0 diesel gets 21 MPG unloaded. I just pulled a full size Ford van on a trailer about 200 miles and my truck hardly even knew it was back there. It still got about 18. Not too bad for an 8,000 lb. truck pulling around 7,500 lb...
    You can't beat the sound of a big V8 gas motor though. I've got one of those too- a 96 F-250 with a 460 5spd.!

    I've personally changed the oil over eighty times on my 99 7.3, but I'd rather not think about how much that cost me. :eek:

    That ship has sailed my friend. I love my six speed manual 7.3 turbo CC 4x4.

    Here's a pic of the brand spankin' new ZF6 I put in at 250k miles.

    Yeah Ram finally killed theirs off. Surprised me and a lot of others. The trucks actually sold well

    From the Detroit Free Press article near the end:

    "The Tremor package will be available on crew cab, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models."

    I take this to mean no XLT or STX. Ive got no use or desire to pay extra for luxury items or non standard tech upgrades in a Super Duty. Thats just me personally. As long as its got AC, Cruise control, auto trans and 4x4 Im happy.

    @13COBRA When the ordering banks open up, would you be able to shed some light on this new package?

    Tremor only available on short bed trim. Ford managing to disappoint this customer once again.

    If this 7.3L doesn't have 500/500 or very close to it I may do something I haven't done in over 10 years and go talk to my Chev Truck dealer.

    My guess, and this is only a guess, is that the wheel base length of crew cab short bed gave them a higher reliability rate than the long bed. Probably because of breakover angle.

    Id still prefer the longbed as well, but nothing a flat bed swap couldnt fix. :D

    8ft bed are more common ext or regular cab trucks. Its not like 8ft lumber wont fit on a 6-3/4" bed anyway.

    besides the fact that with a crew cab you would have nearly 15ft of wheel base. Terrible turning radius and you would get get high centered on every single obstacle on a trail. LOL
