I purchased this vehicle from a local dealer with 14,000 miles on it.

It's an 08 F250 XLT single cab 4WD pickup.

The only odd thing about the truck is that it was special ordered with a rubber floor mat instead of carpet.  Other than that all of the rest of the features are normal for an XLT.
 - 6.4 diesel with 5spd Torqshift automatic transmission with tow/haul mode
 - towing package
 - camper package
 - 4WD with shift on the fly capability
 - tailgate step
 - integrated trailer brake controller
 - upfitter switches
 - 3.73 axle ratio
 - towing mirrors
 - Wet Okole seat covers

An OASIS report I had run when I purchased the truck confirms that it has had no failures to date other than a radiator replacement around 20,000 miles (due to leak).

The only thing on the truck that is not completely stock are the tires, everything else is in its factory configuration.  I had a set of 285/75 R18 Toyo Open Country MTs installed around 2,000 miles ago.

The truck is mechanically sound as it is, and I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere.  I bought it to haul my Jeep around, but I've found that I don't go wheeling as often as I used to and I'm looking to liquidate some of my wheeling stuff.  It does have a few minor rock pecks, etc here and there, but none are major.  The truck was not used to tow heavy loads and the vast majority of the miles on it are highway miles.

All maintenance has been done with Motorcraft consumables (other than the use of John Deere Plus 50 II engine oil, which meets all of Ford and the API's requirements for the engine).  Engine oil was changed every 4,000 miles, and fuel filters were changed with every other oil change.

Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost sales robust in early going

Tue, 13 May 2014 13:02:00 EST

Okay, okay, okay, so I was just a smidge wrong. Those that read my review of the Ford Fiesta with the new 1.0-liter, EcoBoost engine will know that while I really enjoyed the torquey little three-cylinder, I was concerned that Ford's decision to force 1.0-liter owners into a manual transmission, steel wheels and one trim level might hurt sales of the new engine. I was also concerned that the promised 45-mile-per-gallon highway rating wouldn't be enough to tempt buyers into trying an engine that's so far outside of what the general public is use to. My concerns, though, seem to have been for naught.
While not doing a booming business on the triple-equipped Fiesta, Ford is seeing a take rate of four to eight percent per month in the engine's first few months on sale. Now, four to eight percent might not sound like a lot - if, like last year, the Fiesta sells around 71,000 units, there'd be barely 5,600 1.0-liter models on the road. It is also small potatoes relative to the take rate on EcoBoost-equipped vehicles across the Ford range, which US sales analyst Erich Merkle estimates to be roughly 35 to 40 percent of retail sales. Still, according to The Detroit News, the 1.0-liter is getting adopted at roughly the same rate as the sparkling Fiesta ST, which should be a solid indication of just how well this little engine is doing.
The 1.0-liter's success "really speaks volumes, not just to what we're doing with the Fiesta, but with EcoBoost in general," Merkle told Autoblog.

Ford 1.0L EcoBoost 3-Cylinder: Autoblog Technology of the Year award finalist

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 21:00:00 EST

As the old saying goes, "There's no replacement for displacement." But these days, many automakers are launching powerful, downsized engines that offer similar or better power output than their predecessors, all while offering improvements in fuel economy and emissions. These days, we're seeing automakers replacing eight-cylinder engines with turbocharged sixes, and the naturally aspirated six-cylinder motors are being phased out in favor of potent turbo fours. But Ford has gone even smaller, offering a three-cylinder, turbocharged engine with one single liter of displacement.
Sure, three-cylinder engines aren't anything new - they've been offered around the globe for ages. But Ford's EcoBoost 1.0L powerplant is perhaps the best application the Autoblog team has tested. Gone are the triple-cylinder complaints of yore - this engine doesn't sound anemic or buzzy, and there's healthy power output on tap. In fact, compared to the 1.6-liter inline-four that Ford also offers in the Fiesta, the 1.0-liter is more powerful, while boasting an impressive 45 miles per gallon on the highway.
This engine has already received numerous accolades, including winning the International Engine of the Year award in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The 1.0L EcoBoost will be available in the refreshed 2015 Ford Focus here in the US.

2014 Ford Fusion to get 1.5L EcoBoost three-cylinder?

Tue, 09 Apr 2013 13:32:00 EST

Just one year after launching the all-new 2013 Fusion, Ford is reportedly set to alter the sedan's powertrain lineup with the addition of a new 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine. A member of Blue Oval Forums apparently got their hands on the ordering guide for the 2014 model year Fusion, and this 1.5-liter mill is set to be introduced with late availability.
This lines up with other news about the Chinese-market Mondeo being offered with a new 1.5-liter EcoBoost - a derivative of the 1.0-liter triple that will come to North America under the hood of the Fiesta (note: the 1.0 is also offered in the current Euro-spec Mondeo). In the Chinese application, the larger three-pot engine produces 177 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is very close to the current 1.6-liter inline-four's output numbers of 178 hp and 184 lb-ft.
What's interesting, however, is that the 1.6-liter engine will reportedly still be offered in the Fusion, but only with the six-speed manual transmission. The smaller 1.5-liter EcoBoost will only be mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic, and will feature start/stop. This means that while the 1.5 is slightly down on power compared to the 1.6, it could easily improve fuel economy numbers, allowing the Fusion to regain the title of having the best mileage in the segment, likely besting the 38 miles per gallon of the Nissan Altima. Currently, the Fusion 1.6 is rated at 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.
