I'm not a Ford guy, but found this cherry truck and couldn't pass it up. The thing is a beast, tows anything and seats 6 adults! 15mpg towing my pontoon boat and carrying people isn't that bad. Very easy ride on highway. People get the heck outa your way!
I've used this truck extensively in all
climates as a daily driver and a work
truck. Can handle 2 pallets of 60
pound concrete with no sweat.
I kept the fluids changed regularly but
amazingly did my first tune up last
year, when the truck was 11 years old.
The aftermarket chrome that came with
the truck when I bought it rusted
Overall the truck has been a great
This truck is the best truck! The 7.5L
V8 is very powerful (for a gas engine)
and very reliable. the truck can easily
take a beating and tows our 29 foot
Nomad fifth-wheel travel trailer with
ease. The Truck's vinyl seating is very
tough but is somewhat uncomfortable.
The truck is a F-350 SRW Crew Cab
Truck, one that I would suggest to any
Had this pick-up almost 20 years and it's the most fun thing to drive. Sure it's a work vehicle and gets used hard from time to time, but when I get to drive it unloaded I have a blast. I call it my giant sports car. I recently drove a 2009 Corvette, and while my pick-up could not quite meet it performance-wise, it was not off the map. This thing handles beautifully. Just wish it had more power pulling 5+ tons up a steep hill, but I guess a diesel is better for that. As far a weight-carrying capacity goes, you CANNOT overload it. (Well, I haven't tried gold or platinum bars.) Anything normal (1-2 tons) is literally unnoticeable.
