This is a big auction yard. There are usually several fleet trucks. And several public units too. I think they went through 250 trucks.

And lots of xl models. which also happen to be my choice, for the simplicity and rubber floor.


You should have seen some of the trucks from the coal mines.

one of them was 1 yr old rusted to hell. with 40k. A reg cab 4x4 sold for $5k. These were BEAT UP.

never even been registered.

Friend of mine has a 2008 RCLB F-350, he has gotten a best of 11mpg empty. When the sander and the plow are on he gets an average of 5.5 mpg. But he claims it has great power for pulling his mini-ex and dump trailer.

Gas mileage is irrelevant for HD work trucks.

No one has ever bought a HD work truck for the gas mileage.

I would. That new ford TD is very tempting. I has some great numbers. I tow under 10k so it's pointless for me.

Yup, so far so good. Its just a regular cab, sometimes I wish I would have got the extended. As for the mileage its not the best I seem to get the same whether I'm towing or not. The dash says I've been getting around 8.5mpg If I get on the highway I can get around 9.5mpg. If I'm towing a real heavy load its gotten as low as 7mpg. I just try and keep my eyes closed at the gas stations


I keep thinking about getting that five star tuner once I get some extra money. It seems like a lot of guys over at the FT site like it.

I drove it home tonight, it was dog tracking a bit with the broken leaf

but it was smoooth and quiet.

seems like it will be a beast. The fuel gauge never moved on a 40 mile trip

I'll get some used o.e.m. leaf packs and get it fixed on saturday.

Re: Picked Up A V10 F350 Today


i looked into getting a 99' King Ranch Crew Cab 4X4 here in MT with the V10.
26,000 miles on it. 8000$ from a private seller.
The reason i wanted it was because i was going to put a Gear Vendor Transmission in it and get upwards of 20mpg.
After talking with the guys at Gear vendor, they said they didnt reccomend it because there was a tuning issue between the motor and the transmission that their transmission would mess up.
So i passed on it.
Since then, i have talked with two ppl that have Gear Vendor Transmissions behind their V10s with no complaints.

I still might try it.
http://www.gearvendors.com/

They say that with a Gear Vandor, the milage you are getting at 45mph is what you will be getting at 65mph. Thats a huge increase.
That makes a V10 more apealing to me.
