flexed her muscles

Well, I finally got the chance to flex her out today. It was a short pull but the F350 SD handled it like a champ. I installed the Reese Signature slider and everything worked great.I love the integrated brake controller and the Tow/Haul mode is amazing. I only pulled her for about 120 miles but it felt good to be pulling again. Mileage was 9.6mpg at 75mph or 65mph. Didin't matter how fast. There are only 10000 miles on the engine so I still have some break in to go.

Glad to hear you r first good pull went good. We have about 15k on our '06 and we got between 10.5 and 11.6 on every fill up while pulling to the Fall Rally. I think the mileage will get a little better as the stroke gets broke in a little more.

I'm not at all surprised, Garin1. I know how well my '05 does towing our Montana. It's a pleasure to drive.
