BTW, if you order a Ford Super Duty at this point, it's going to be a 2019 model. No more 2018 builds accepted. The change to 2019 starts in June/July and retail orders will show up by August/September.

I too have had all the big 3. 1/2, 3/4T Chev/GMC, 1/2, 1T Dodge/Ram, and 1/2, 3/4T Fords. The 1T Ram, 2012, CC LB Dually was good but thirsty. Because fewer on the road, fewer after market parts, i.e. dually tire valve extender kit. Currently have the 2016 F-250 4WD, CC, SB, diesel and am very happy with it. None of the towing capacity figures are accurate because no one buys a base model that the manufacturers base the figure on. Choice is purely a personal preference. The published torque and HP values are very similar in real world use and few people will notice any real difference when towing.

A note on fuel economy. My last 2015 F-150 and current F-250 have remarkable fuel economy, 21+ if I were to believe the fuel computer on the trucks. Generally Ford puffs up that figure about 10%, so when it says I have used 18 gallons, I fill with about 20. Would love to see how they REALLY calculate the computer figures. Don't know if GM or Ram does the same thing.
