Re: F250 Or F350


My 5.4 has been extremely reliable and durable. The downside is the truck is a dog in stop-and-go traffic. But it does write nice on the highway and has more power and higher gears.

Nice truck.

I usually like brush guards, but yep, that is one ugly mofo.

Lol it is. Quality though as itís a Herd. Worth north of $3000 new. I guess the original owner wrote of his first 2010 f250 by hitting a moose so he bought the strongest bumper he could for the replacement.


I think it partially why I got a good deal on the truck. Most people looked at the bumper and said pass.

Only downside to the truck is the ugly cow catcher.
Luckily it came with the factory bumper so I can swap it back and sell this one

Leave it on. Hit a deer and it'll cost you 8 to 10k

Re: F250 Or F350


I'm really not a fan of the over sized metal bumpers. The main reason, they kill people on impact. Cars n trucks are made to crush and write off for a reason.
Didn't think much of it until I drove by a dead body on the highway. The car didnt stand a chance... the trucks was jacked up 3 feet off the ground with a front end of tank.

Re: F250 Or F350


It doesn't look very good, in my opinion.
The advantage I see is when you hit a deer, you can keep driving the truck. The local Sheriff's department has them on all cars. One year they hit 6 deer. This way, they can keep driving the car, because of the lack of damage.

So don't drive a car.

Better ban semis, dump trucks, concrete trucks, etc.

Re: F250 Or F350


Got the new back rack on tonight



Got a really good deal on the rear bar also. Nice to keep the weight of the tailgate and be able to open the gate with a ladder on.



Next project if the weather hold is to take the bumper off.

This one cost me $500 Canuck bucks and took me and a buddy 45 mins to install. Nice not needing to drill anything into the truck.

I have a backrack on my truck as well since 2009, great quality and the powercoat still looks good after all these years. I am getting another one for my new silverado as well.

I am also going to get the siderails as well for it and that rear ladder bar is slick to keep the ladder off the tailgate but i dont think it will work with the siderails so i might have to weld something up
