Just Brought home my new to me 2008 F350 6.4 PSD DRW Super Duty with 4.10 rear. I would like to thank all of you for the hours of advice that that you have given me throughout the year. I purchased my rig last year without really knowing anything about weights. I took the salesman at his word that my F250 would be fine. I did tow my rig over 5,000 miles last year without incident knowing I was over the limits. I always worried although my 250 did just fine. I had the opportunity to trade it on the 08 350 and all I can say is good things come to those who wait. Check it out! Only 19000 miles 1 owner! This truck has 3 time the payload my 250 srw had. Can't wait to try it out.

That is a sweet ride. Enjoy! As a Ford Truck Guy I have to admit the previous generation grill looks better than the current one.

That is a good deal. How long was that truck on the lot. Only 19,00 miles. Looks like a good ride.

Fantastic rig, Rick! Best of luck with it. You should be able to tow a small condo down the road if needed...*s.

if you think this is your LAST weight discussion - you could be wrong! Now, you need a bigger trailer!!!! LOL To keep the circle of "weight" going.....

Nice Truck - even for a Ford....and previous poster is correct, the older grills look way better than the current ones. I think Ford is going for the overkill look, and sometimes more is not better.

Like the grill guard and brush lights.

A very sharp looking rig.

You surely have way more options with what you tow or haul now, compared to before. I've always thought a truck camper would be in my future, so I have always used dually for the old "just in case" idea.

Best of luck!
