A real tough truck

Wow.. A real tough truck to say the
least. They hold their resale value
better than Dodge and Chevy. The
Powerstroke is the only way to go.
Drove the big 3... the Ford is hands
down a better Vehicle. They are also
the hardest to find on the used market
which might tell you somthing. As far
as fuel... what are you crying about?
Its a one ton Dually! 13 city 16.5
highway loaded or empty. Its better
than an Expedition.. or Navigator. My
4WD Ranger only got 15-17 MPG. This is
a true commercial vehicle with more
power than you could ask for without
buying a Semi Truck. And by the way...
trucks are supposed to ride like trucks!
The Powerstroke Diesel... Don't buy the
gas engine unless you own a filling
station. Resale values are over book
Interior is a little thin... Leather
seating is not durable and is very
thin. A better gage setup would be
nice... oil temp-turbo-trans temp etc.
a tougher rear bumper would be nice...
brighter back-up lamps would be nice.
