    This is the plow truck that the other salesman, Doug, uses at my dealership to clear the lot. The truck is a 2005 F-350 SuperCrew with a 6.0L powerstroke diesel.

    The plow is a 7.5 foot ultramount western. I know that seems small for the truck, but you have to remember that we are plowing a car lot with it...

    I too am starting to read about numerous problems with the 04 and 05 trannies blowing up. I'll say it again, my next truck will be a hand shaker, I don't care if my knee gets tired, rather spend a few bucks on some advil, than a couple thousand on a tranny, jusy my opinion though. So yes, the new fords are having some problems, but all trucks have issues, and I imagine ford will get it straightened out.

    It was a truck that we had in stock... we only use a 7.5 western because an 8' tends to take the bumpers off of the new cars... :) :)
