Getting that fixed this week, parts are in. It's even getting where I gotta hide my keys, wife wants to drive it all the time. Gas mileage right around 15 on highway. 00 CC 5.4 4.1Ls Lariat 4x4
It's a pretty neat site, you can post quite a few pics. Well it looks like I'm the only one on tonight, so you all have a good night, catch ya later.
Synthetics won't hurt your engine, but I don't see the benefit you'll get.
I if you have a 'high performance' engine that runs at higher tempatures, higher rpms, and with tolerances found in racing engines, then synthetics are probably helpful.. Thus the reason Corvettes and the like come from the factory with Mobil 1 etc.. (At least thats my understanding).
Save your money.
any feedback would be appreciated.
Sherwoodfor: I really love this truck!How would I go about posting pics.?

Seems like a general consensus to put syn oils in the tranny and as bess said, pros and cons on syn in the engine.
We did the initial oil change at 1K miles and the next will be at 4K. We're having Blackstone (www.blackstone.com) analyze the oil at every change.
We'll also be adding a bypass filter at 4K. The impression I've gotten is that syn vs dino is personal but if you're looking at keeping the truck for a while, bypass filter is a definite win.
Does anyone know how long it takes Ford to send you the customer survey after you take delivery of your truck, my list of complaints are growing daily with the dealer.
The dealer lists reasons to buy from them in there ads, and the first one is when you buy from them, every other oil change is free ( no little print on restrictions). Well when I implied about using syn. oil, I got the run around for a week, then finally the Service Manager said that the oil change would be $57.30 and you would get $25 off every other one. They said this also implied towards the powerstroke oil changes. I would think this is false advertising on there part, wouldn't you all agree? I have decided to do the regular oil changes at every 3000 miles or 3 months which ever comes first at GoodYear. GoodYear was only going to charge $39 for the syn. Ford is lucky that I like this truck & nothing bad has gone wrong yet, because the dealer I bought it from will never find me buying another vehicle or even recommending anybody to buy from them. My wife has even agreed if anything comes up with this truck, it's history along with Ford. Does anybody recommend a Good Ford Dealer in Southeast Wisconsin?
Thanks to one and all for the help and support. This site has brought me more than any of you will ever know (CP).
Bowhuntwi- Great looking truck. Love the color!
Vintagebldrs- Let us know when you post yours. Can't wait to see it.
as for pictures on the net, i don't have that capability. i don't even have a computer, i have a webtv, which is basically a glorified cable box with a remote keyboard. regardless, i do enjoy the pics of other rigs. in fact, thanks to bowhunt, i probably talked the mrs. into us getting a cap. i showed her the the picture he posted and she really liked the way it looked. we live in the great white north, which makes a cap a good idea. the comparison was easy as bowhunt has the same color and config (cc,sb,srw)as ours. a sharp looking truck!
Cowgirl - congratulations and good luck!
mainecowgirl: Welcome to the ranks of the "haves". Wait does not seem to bad from your new vantage point, does it :-)
Have you heard any reports on Lochen in Newburg. I have heard that as a small dealership, they make good deals and treat a person well on trades. I was a little bit worried about allocation from such a small dealer on Super Duties. Have never herd anything about service, but sometimes no news is good news. Might want to give them a try.
My brother in law from Sheboygan dealt with the ford dealer in Plymouth on his last two mini vans and has been very satisfied. This may also be within reasonable distance for you.
It was a long wait (too long). It was not as enjoyable experience as I expected. I am still having problems with my local dealer and have to ask 4 times for my deposit to be refunded. While I originally recommended them, after the way I have been treated by them, I would NOT recommend Beach Ford in VA Beach, VA. In fact, I am not overly pleased with Ford (Customer Assistance Center). Pretty worthless. However, once again, Cochise and Lone Star were great.
My wife just got back from running to the store and she says everybody was getting out of her way. Going to run and get the floor mats later today.

The long bed is great for carrying canoes. Went today and stirred up some gators. These are nice trucks.
