Just throwing it out there in case anyone comes across one... I'm looking for a unicorn. 2010 or newer are f350 v10 king ranch long bed under 100k miles. In a perfect world it would be the model/option with 4 captains chairs and consuls front and back. I would also consider a lariat and possibly a 250

2000 excursion. Drove it to the lumber yard the other day just fine. Came out cranked like a champ but wouldnít fire. Finally reset the fuel inertia switch and it fired right up and drove home great. Havenít drove it in a couple days. Went to start it and same deal except for now it wonít start at all. Whatís the chance of an inertia switch ďgoing badĒ. Or anyone had the same issue?

I thought the v10 was only in F450/550 cab and chassis trucks after 2010?

Almost positive the 6.2 start the 11' model year for 250s and 350s except for RV chassis, and maybe the 450/550 and up.

Not going to find one from the factory as 2009 was the last year for quad captain chairs in the KR & HD crew cabs and 2010 was the last year for the V10 in the wide frame (Pickup) trucks. The 6.2 / 6R140 is a much nicer combination than the 6.8 / 5R110 in my mind so I would say what you want is not really the best choice anyways as we have similar trucks to what you are looking for in both flavours and I would take the 6.2 / 6R140 every time.

Ok, so I’ve got a 2010 F350 V10 now. I’ll be towing two Jeeps around a little this summer on a gooseneck trailer in UT. Jeeps are a mildly built TJ (stock axles and 33” tires) and my “Jeep” (weighs 5100 lbs with tons/armor/etc). I have 295 65 20 Nitto tires and 4.10 gears. Any bets on how fast I’ll be swapping to 4.56 gears or do people think the 5 speed auto and 3V V10 will be up to the task as long as I don’t mind feeding it fuel? Anyone crossing 8k’ mountain passes with similar loads?

very interested to hear how it goes, I'm getting ready to switch to 4.30 gears for that extra towing power. I'm running 275 65 20, just slightly smaller then you

Get a tune from 5 Star. It will really wake the motor up and make the trans shift better.

That may be in the cards after gears?

supposedly this makes a huge diff on 3v trucks....2v/4r100 is more debatable

If you fix the Y pipe and tune it you will see an improvement.

So, what did I just get myself into?
FIL picked up a bone stock 2002 F350 SRW Extended Cab Shortbed 4x4 pickup.
2 owners, 71k miles (yes, 71,xxx miles), power windows, power mirrors, electric shift to 4wd.
Needs exhaust manifolds and/or a Y pipe (sounds like a manifold exhaust leak and the Y pipe looked rusty enough that it might split on removal).
It also needs a little attention to some rust spots (bottoms of doors, rear wheelwells, new undercoating throughout), a new plug for the 7 pin trailer plug and the plow/plowframe excised from it (Western Ultramount I think).

Anything else preventative that I should do to it? He is going to have a local shop fix the rust and look at the exhaust.
Is it worth switching to headers and a different Y pipe if it is indeed a rotten manifold leaking?

I was pretty impressed with the truck and trailer. 7.1 mpg on the way down. 6.4 mpg for the whole trip. Wind from Green River to Wellington sucked up a bit of gas. Hills slowed me down to 50 mph a few times coming back to Spanish Fork near Helper Utah. Lots of 55 mph curves on that stretch and that felt plenty fast.

I think your 4.30 would be fine but Iím thinking 4.56 with the 35Ē tires.

thanks, that's not bad at all considering a diesel will only net about 2-3 mpg better with that load.
