It seems to me that the short box/super cab F250 is actually fairly nimble for a diesel powered full size - it's essentially the same size as an old fashioned standard cab long box. If I ever get back to the full size truck market, that's the setup I would want: SuperCab, 6.5' box, 4x4 turbo diesel F250.
Its a world of difference! I have owned both and there are few parking lots and almost NO parking garages that are made for a Ford Super Duty. My F-150 is pretty easy to park.

Thats my tow rig. 2005 F-150 4x4 with the 5.4 liter. Absolutely no problem pulling (especially with the Edge Evolution programmer in place), but stopping is a whole other story! Keep lots of distance....haha!

No doubt that an F150 will pull a Jeep on a trailer. And, its a good choice for that task.

But an F250 Super Duty is only an inch or two wider and a couple of inches taller and otherwise pretty much the same shape for parking purposes. Of course, you can't compare a Crew Cab DRW configuration to a Reg. Cab F150, but model for model, I think the F250 is just as driveable and parkable as the F150.

I have to admit, I have never owned a stock F-250. They all had a lift & tires on them. Bu I really never had much trouble parking....just back into every parking space!

I HATE parking my 1 ton dually. I almost always back into spots due to the truck needing so much turning room

I just traded my trusty 2004 6.0 Diesel for a new Super Duty with a V10. After putting 3 turbos on it, pulling the cab to replace the heads and again pulling the cab to remove the engine to fix some leaks there was o way I was keeping that truck without a warranty.

So far I'm loving it. It's getting about 12 mpg's in town and it's only got 300 miles on it, not too bad. Heck the 6.4 Powerstrokes owners I talked with are only getting 12 mpg's!

Here is my monster. It is fully equipped with Banks performance mods.
Exhaust brake, HD torque converter, 4 " stainless 5" tip, power pak.. otto mind chip.. I bought the whole book and it allows me 18 MPG dry and 12.5 -13mpg. towing 16K all day long up and down hills. It is an 02 with a 7.3 PSD, I bought it in late 01 now with 46 K original miles. The engine is barely broke in. I will sadly sell it later this year as I will graduate (retire) from my job and a present will be the real monster F-450 King Ranch.:

I have two trailers for towing my Jeep. Trailer one is a 20' Enclosed Haulmark Race Trailer that weighs 3,450 lbs empty. I get 9 mpg when towing the Jeep with this trailer.

Trailer two is an 18' H&H open tilt bed trailer that is all aluminum, and weighs 1500 lbs empty. I get 12.5 mpg when towing the Jeep with this trailer. (picture shows the trailer with our ATVs on it, but it hauls the Jeep just fine)
