    Just took delivery of our new F550. Gas V-10, stainless dump bed & tailgate spreader. Vinyl lettering and wood sides going on this week. This is our 1st Ford truck (other trucks are GM), since GM does not make the medium duty anymore, we went with the Ford F550.

    Great looking truck. You will love that engine, rock solid reliable. I worked at a ford dealer for 12 plus years and we never saw a V-10 engine failure.

    Nice truck! I wish Dodge and Ford would install wheel simulators on their 4500-5500s and 450-550s. Those gray rims have got to go!

    Damn nice truck! My thinking exactly, I'm a chevy guy to, but when I trade or sell my 2001 dump, I will buy one of those F550's.

    To the OP nice ass truck. Like it alot.

    The new fords are not the only well built trucks. The older ones are too.

    As pinky said...... your loss ussmileyflag But to each their own. What ever works for you.
