Curious why you opted for the gasser? Increased maintenance cost of the diesel? Initial cost? Which gas motor did you opt for?

Personally, I'd be pretty concerned about buying a more modern diesel after hearing about the high maintenance costs (since I'm not independently wealthy). I've heard too many horror stories so if it came time for me to replace my older Dodge with something newer, I think I'd likely opt for a gasser myself.

Did you get rid of the Freightliner? That truck was killer

Baron85 Here is my new setup. Finally bought my own trailer yesterday so I can stop borrowing the one from work. Truck is my company work truck. 2015 f350, trailer is 32' deck with dexter 7k axles. Not sure if we can haul my truck and my buddies jeep weight wise but wanted to check and see if they fit. Hoping to run it over the scales at work some time this week.

Very nice, looks well cared for. I'm looking at doing the same thing, so if you have any pointers, I'm all ears.

I like it. The only complaint I have is that the Aisin always seems like it needs to be in one gear lower from a "feel" standpoint.

How much does that weigh and how well does it pull from the bumper? WD hitch?
I've hauled about 12k from the hitch before and I don't think I'd ever want to do more without sway control and weight distribution.
Clean looking rig though. Props.

Still have the '97 F350. It's waiting for a Cummins swap and a 4x4 conversion.

I'll be in Cali for work next week and I will keep my eyes open just to see what I see.

looking at condition based on the picture, the options, mileage, and little issues, I think that is a good price. Clapped out piles of shit sell for 5-6 so I think you're sitting well sir.

Sorry everyone else

Drivers window is INOP so I'll more than likely have to put in a new window motor. Heat/AC all work great. My first diesel so I have been reading like crazy to keep my head above water.

Picked up a 1994.5 f250 5 speed 4x4 with the powerstroke. Has some flavor of 6 position tuner on it and will smoke like a brodozer on any setting past the third setting. Runs darn well for its age.

FlatBlackXJ Just picked this up a few weeks ago. 1994 Chevy k2500 burb, 454 auto. Pretty clean for a midwest rig. Haven't got a chance to haul the XJ yet but should be better than finding a ride to get my junk around. 170k on it.. planning on ditching the nerf bars, putting some better headlights in it and doing some small detail shit, nothing major...keeping it stock.
