Yeah, but that's all I had!

Honestly, I can't see any of the big 3 not being comparable, they will all get the job done, just pokin'

These monsters all have over 900ft. lbs. of torque and if my 10yr old truck gets it done, well, it should be a walk in the park with a new truck.

My dealer has them on the lot and has sold some SuperCrew 250's.

Understand sir, I just hope nobody finds out that Dodge actually has more horsepower, Ford just tweaked the software for bragging rights, and my neighbors Duramax is impressive.

Using this and taking the options off my truck the CCC is similar to the 17. The SD 17 has a fully boxed frame and this will add some weight but aluminum will save some.

It has been 30 years or longer since I was that far north, did have an uncle that lived in Bonners Ferry helped move him to Rexburg back then.

I'm liking the integrated rear camera that mounts to back of TT or 5er. My dealer has 10 2017's on their lot. They started shipping to dealers in end of July. I did test drive one, but pockets just not that deep at the moment.

Just bought my 2017 f250 super 6.7 diesel Lariat. It's awesome, so much tech and computerized I'll probably sell when warranty is up cuz I'm sure it will cost a fortune. I love how much towing/hauling assistance and cameras etc. however, also bought a 2017 Forest River 3250RL and since ford changed the frame no one has a under bed set up for the hitch yet. 5er is still at the dealership waiting for me to come get her.
