    I am thinking about making the move. The above is not a mis-print. All I need to do is move the Western Plow over. Any thoughts on this?

    how many miles on your 2011? I would do that offer if I had it with my 2011 f250, but it would not happen.

    Is the F-350 similarly equipped (not going from a King Ranch to an XLT)?

    Are u stepping up in options? Hard to say if it’s a good deal without know the difference between the two trucks or how much u owe on the 11. I traded my 11 for a 13 in last fall for just a signature no money out of pocket. I got the same tuck just new. Without knowing the details try to get more for the trade ant the price down. Just my $.02

    Nothing owed on the 2011. Difference> Getting a F350 Same truck otherwise but no diesel. Never had a need for the diesel. I do not haul / tow anything. All options are the same.

    you are getting ripped off. the 2011 diesel with 36K miles will sell for more than or about equal to the 2015 gas job.

    if anything, do a fair trade.

    Then why step up to a 350?

    I was thinking the same thing. I don't know about a even trade they want to make $$ too. 3K and the 11, get the new one. Nothing beats a new truck.

    That doesn't sound like a good deal if the 2015 isn't diesel.

    I did not pull the trigger. I am having second thoughts. My current truck has a FORD extended warranty > 7 year / 200,000 miles.

    What stopped me in my tracks was this >>>> $2200.00 to switch the 8' Western Plow from the old truck to the new. I was quoted $5100.00 for a new Western installed. 40% of the cost of a new one just to switch trucks.

    I was thinking between $800 - $975.00 for the switch. Anyone care to chime in on the $2200.00 pricing.

    Yea thats bs. Unless the mounts are not the same. Mounts can be expensive. Should be at most a 7hr job, dealerships labor rate are always crazy high. Do the job youself and save $1,000! Take off is super easy.

    WHAT? $2200 there sniffing glue!! I paid $500 at the western dealer to swap my mount and wiring form one truck to the next. I don’t think it’s that much to get a new plow installed.

    Good advice but >>>>> Since I am an amateur, I am sure the warranty will be voided on the new truck <which I have decided not to buy because of this $2200.00 item>

    Why would the warranty be voided?

    I mean just ask a local dealer to swap it for you. 2200 is completely ridiculous

    maelawncare suggest that I do it myself (to which I answered why I would not do it myself) and I could not expect the Ford dealer to do it for free.

    If the dealer does not meet it's sales figures by the end of this month, they will be calling me.

    Why are you not getting it changed over at the plow dealer?
