Thanks, Frank
The 8.1/3.73and the 6.0/4.10 actually have a negligible difference in fuel mileage; but a LOT depends 4x4 or not, bigger/wider tires, stance(lift), etc. etc.

You will not regret owning a 8.1L. If overall fuel mileage is a concern, pick up a used Mazda 626 like I did for a few years.

I have a ridiculously clean and stock 2000 F-250 4x4 241k and is still as strong as an ox. Shortbed ex-cab(not 4 door) Never thought much about selling it, but......

Hmmm...this is a possibility.. It has the 3.73 and the barn (cargo) doors. The barn doors are really good for trailering cause you can actually open them. As far as gear, it's the LT package so it's basically has everything, its the loaded verison.

The truck has been a great vehicle and the only thing I've had to do to it over the years is replace a battery, tires and regular oil/trans changes. I've been running Mobil 1 since 2005.

I'm getting between 14-16 mph. My friend had a burb with the 8.1 and he was getting 8-10.

Just shot these pics moments ago, haven't even cleaned it.

I'm looking for a 3/4 ton suv, prefer a diesel or big engine. Same way you look at it. Every dime I spend on the tow vehicle is less I have to spend on the boat. I have a company vehicle to drive every day, this one will be used sparingly, a couple thousand miles a year. Let me know if yo find anything.

I was in the market for a Diesel Ex/250..even considered the V-10...I ended up with a 05 Escalade 6.0AWD (345/400LQ9).This thing scoots for a pig.80mph hit it and it will put you back in the seat.More HP/tq than the V10 and much better MPG.Not the diesel mind you but then again it is very comfy to daily.

I just needed it to pull my 26' cabin(8k loaded)...it does it with surprising ease.Even the wet steep ramp we put in was nothing to yank the boat out.
