    Truck looks nice from what I can see. ;) We want daytime pics, hehehe. Is it a 250 or 350, SRW or DRW? Best of luck with it! What plow do you plan on going with? Straight or V? Mike :drinkup:

    Nice truck, I see you went with the 6.0PSD,even with all the trouble they have been having with them. That truck must really haul,they are a quick truck right off the showroom floor. Once you get some miles on it,report back with average MPG,and any troubles youve had,thanks John

    Good luck with the truck! I hope the new diesel works out.

    I've got a plow in mind that would look good on there too!;)

    Ill get daytime pics as soon as im free grass is growing like madd here. Its a f350 supercab xlt srw diesel. Its fully loaded everything but the sport package and leather. I went with the 6.0l couldnt really find a 7.3l and i still have the warranty and all if i have a problem. i picked it up yesterday morning got 110 miles on it so far, ill be sure to post updates on it. For a plow maybe a 8ft xblade or blizzard 810. We will see. Pelican what did u have in mind?

    I don't think I would go less then a 9ft straight blade on a long truck like that. Maybe an 8.5ft V. Otherwise the rear wheel will track into the snow on even broad turns.

    Very nice truck.

    Nice truck,time to update your sig line,and include the new truck.

    I's also recommend either at least a 8.5 or 9ft blade.Straight or V is up to you,depending on what you use it for.The Blizzard is a nice option as well.

    nice truck

    Thats a real nice truck you got. I love the color. I hope you have the best of luck with it. For the plow I would recommend the 9ft Western ultramount. Good luck with the plow you get for it. I hope to have a new Ford F-350 for next plowing season. Please keep us posted on how things work out.:drinkup:

    Thats a really nice truck! It has the same colors has my 99 F-250.Your gonna love the diesel. I would go with the blizzard 810,I think that would be the perfect plow for that truck.

    The guys who've been paying attention will know what plow I favor, it's been mentioned here a few times already! I don't want to be accused of sounding like a broken record;)

    Uh, what's a record?:confused:

    Two days not even, 124 miles on it and it breaks down. The emission control light was on so i call the dealer, they say maybe the gas cap aint on tight-it was so they said theyd pencil me in for wed at 10. i said heck no i just bought this im coming out now, get in my truck drive a mile. It hesitates, wont move cant go above 20 mph i look behind me smoke from the exhaust everywhere. I had to wait 1.5 hrs for a flatbed, drive to the dealer in the tow truck, wait 1.5hrs for them to tell me i need a new rpg valve i think it was and then they say they have none in stock we can get it wed. I refused to leave until my truck was working, they were clueless made em stay open an extra hr to finish me up. Forget the 6.0l dealers are full of crap. You think for 40k id get more than 124 miles.
    Hey ill see about a 9ft plow its only a short bed so it aint a long truck standard size. Not too shabby for 17 eh?
