    yes, its the v-10. It seems alot of trucks this size on this site have the diesel, but with the amount of mileage we will put on this truck a year, the extra cost didnt make sence. plus the v-10 will be plenty powerful for our needs. the 08's dont have the diesel door badge anymore. its on the front fender on the F550 badge. not as easy to pic out.

    I just saw a 08 F350SD and holy cheet man! that truck was awesome. I asked about trading our 06 in for it. Funny thing is, the 08 stickered only 150 bucks more than ours did. It had everythinig I wanted in our 06 but when we got ours it was the end of the year so I couldnt be too picky, it had the rubber floor instad of carpet, 4wd shifter on the floor instead of the stupid electronic switch, trailer tow command system and the payload was a lot more. This one stickered at 35,031.00,it was an XLT too.

    Ahh, the V10. I was hoping it was a diesel as I was curious about the possibility of being able to shoehorn central hydraulics into the engine compartment. Guess I won't know anytime soon. Nice truck, Ford couldn't give me a truck with the new diesel after how bad they screwed up the last release.

    was thinking the same thing under the hood can't ait to see how far out they have to put the set so the hood will clear the plow frame.

    Can anyone explain why 08s are being released in March the year before and not Sept as usual? Are truck releases different?

    I will be putting a Boss V blade. Probably a 9' 2". And a Undertailgate spreader.
