    Nice, but why did you sell an 03 F250 with a V to buy an 03 F250 with a straight?

    It didn't have heat, and very poor brakes.
    Tranny was tired.

    I got $6K.

    Not in that order.
    I bought a 2nd 03, and came across an 8' straight for it.
    Then was able to upgrade the truck I use, so sold my (the first) 03 with the V, and got the 011, and am just about done installing the new V.

    I already love that loader. Just been using it for loading mulch and topsoil.
    It's very quiet inside.
    Looking forward to spending alot of hours in it!
