His 2017 seems fairly problem free.

Mine had computer issues. Would turn off truck and idle. Ford spent weeks tracking down issue. They found a computer module and a power restraint module that went out. One was covered under warranty and the other was under after market warranty. So glad I bought that warranty.
FYI I bought mine used from Hunsaker in Soda Springs that comes with warranty forever.

Just playing devil's advocate here, why not a Tundra?

Probably because he wants a pickup truck and not a dump truck

Plain and simple I don't like the look of the Tundras. Im pretty partial to the F150. Have had 3 Ford, and none have ever done me wrong inlcuding the dreaded 6.0 which I currently have

I know that everyone is loving that 3.5, but I am still weary of it. Id rather stick with a V8. I know those 3.5's arent getting near the mpg that Ford is claiming. Anyone had any real issues with the 5.0 yet?

Has anyone ever gotten the mileage that any of the manufactures claim that you can get with them? I have always gotten less than what is on the sticker.

How did that Warranty Forever treat you? I bought my truck from the same place, but I'm not sure how much I trust that warranty. Either way, I'm doing all I can to maintain the truck so the warranty does cover any issues.

No issues. I didn't use Hunsaker to repair it. Used Larry miller Ford in sandy. I gave the service writer my copy of warranty he called and made a claim. When my truck was done all I had to pay was the $100 deductible and a new second key (lost it) to reprogram the truck an extra $125(Don't lose your spare key)

I'm glad I was pressured into buying the electrical warranty. It paid for itself on that one repair

I forgot to add. what is the biggest pain is getting a pre authorized before any thing done. I change my oil every 5000 miles with synthetic and they always remind me I can go up to 10000 miles per oil change which is nuts IMO.

I would definitely avoid the first year of anything...just had a customer's Colorado Duramax blow the engine due to leaking injector at 20,000 miles. GM wanted the whole thing boxed up as is to inspect...

Have you driven an ecoboost? just like buying a rifle there is nothing like giving her a good fondilization. Give it a try and you wont be missing much from the powerstroke as long as you keep the weights within reason.
