    I will have to add some pics later ,but I just bought a new truck. It is a 2005 F-350 single wheel 4x4 V-10. This thing is a monster! It has so much more power than the 5.4 V8 ,and for only $600 more sounded like a deal to me. The diesel's are great but I could not see spending another $5000 for it. I'm sure my gas mileage will suck ,but boy is it a blast to drive and I won't have to worry again about pulling whatever up a hill. I'm already looking at a plow to put on it ,I'll bet this baby will really push some snow. OK enough bragging ,I'll post a picture later. Any other V-10 owners out there?

    You'll be Very Happy with it. I picked up my F-250 Super-Cab LWB truck two months ago and I still can't get over the fact it is as nimble as a Mustang. I am also looking to put a plow on it before winter. I got the automatic, and when this thing down shifts it's almost as if it was turbo charged. It's a very impressive engine and driveline combination. You should check out a web sight called Ford Truck Enthusiast for they have a lot of info on these trucks. Oh and the gas mileage should'nt be any worse then the v-8 10-12mpg is normal in any vehicle of this size.
