"I have had this 2005 model for 4 years now and have 64000 miles on it. It has been a joy to own. The duramax has loads of power and it has been reliable. It pull our 11,000 lb. 5th wheel with minimal effort up and down large grades.
the only down side to the short bed is the 22 gallon fuel tank which has a tendency to add up to frequent stops when towing."
"Previous to this, I had driven Fords since 1977. I'm not going back. A great truck (08 SLT crew 4x4). Much nicer and more comfortable than any of the Fords I've owned. I'm getting a consistent 16 mpg, which isn't too bad for the 5.3 flex fuel in a full size crew cab, with most of my driving on the back roads and byways. This is a great truck, and I get compliments on it all the time."
