Response to o/t but Ford

That truck could have been bought new in the 30's. Dealer is flat out lying.
The YouTube vid clueless felony posted is bogus.
I have a '11 3.5 eco in a 1966 F250 & could not be happier.
Another '66 F250 with a '15 3.5 Eco

I have towed 8500 lb so far and It does a much better job than my hopped up 7.3 diesel.
The dealer asking price is way out of line but they are excellent trucks.
I would for sure ask about maintenance records. If none avail find another.
Both the 5.0 & 3.5 engines were excellent in 2014 but having experience on both and being around them from 2011 up
I would take the 3.5 hands down.

As someone else mentioned you can do much better on the 2017's
Base price on the '18's will be less than the '17's and dealers know that.
Great time for a new 2017 with 3.5 & 10spd trans.

Max tow in 2014 has 3.73 gearing.
I have 3.15 in mine. I would feel total comfortable to tow up to 10,000 lbs.
