    stopped by to look at a 08 f250 cc psd today and the list was $50k!!! i know i need to raise my rates this year just to keep up with inflation. last year i raised my service call rates to match the ford dealership rates of $70 per hour. i figure if they charge that rate and you have to bring your car to them i should get the same for going to a customers house and climbing up on their roof. just venting

    The wife got sticker shock last spring. She gets the idea to go shopping for a newer truck for me. The first one we look at is what I want, F-250,PSD, extended cab, short bed, super duty, 24k on it and even Red. The salesman said $28K and she went berserk!
    Hey what do you expect? It's a $35k truck brand new !
