anyway i bought one a months ago or so. anyway, only 6.0 offered which pissed me off. utility bed. time i got compressor, welder, torches and hand tools on the truck it was a dog, couldn't get out of its own way if it was going to run over itself. had trouble with the tires on it. had trouble with the radiator on it. and today to top it all off, going 60 down the highway the hood flys up and folds back onto the wind shield. i just left it there and drove it straight to ford (they were the last ones under the hood) and left it.
got all my stuff out of it and am going to trade it for a fully loaded 250 to plow snow with.


so im in the market for something bigger and better. be nice to find a pete with a double cab and a bigass utility bed. ive been real happy with my other 2 petes.


just thought id share my experience with my ford.

Thats pretty strange considering mine weighed in just under 3700kg (8150#'s)when I first got it, with both tanks full and me inside. GVWR on it is 7940kg (17,500#'s) and I have it licensed for a GCWR of 20,400kg (45,000#'s) With the deck, engine drive, Ar/Oxy/Acet and a whole bunch of other stuff it is ~7350kg (16,200#'s). The GVW is 5000#'s more than a similar F-350 while only weighing ~750#'s more than the F-350.

Jim - mine is a reg. cab 7.3/6 speed and I have 36" tires on it as well. It has been mildly bombed but not much and while it is not a speed demon it pulls much better than the F-350 it replaced. What transmission did you get with it? Reg/Super/Crew cab? Did you build your own deck or buy it with the truck?, lots of the pre-made decks are PIGS.

crew cab and the bed was on it or well they ordered it and put it on.

im just going to buy a big truck and be done with it.

I think im in the market for a bigger truck, class 5 chassis or something.
undecided. money is a factor but not that big of one. If i can get a good truck it will last me 20+ years.
