That's a very nice combo...I'd be just driving around town just to show it off then head home and park it!

Pics from towing the rig home from dealer. 06 F350 King Ranch dually. Tows easy until you get to a hill then the truck is working for a living. Can't imagine dragging this beast around in the mountains. How you guys with the 3/4 tons do it is beyond me.







Here is a youtube video. Not mine but very close to it. Mine doesn't have the touch screen and DVD stuff. Its a truck not a minivan. LOL!

I don't know why the engine working hard on the 350 would be any different from the 250. It is the same engine and drivetrain (Provided the 250 has the deisel option as well). The difference is in the axle build and suspension between those two.

I know however, 3/4 ton trucks are at the upper limits of their towing capacity with the big 5th wheel and gooseneck rigs. Safety, longevity, etc. come to mind. With all the innatentive drivers out there, you will be doing evasive manuevers like swerving and quick stops. Starting and stopping in a straight line is no big woopty doo. Don't even get me started on road construction and keeping the trailer threaded between those orange cones and barrels. These are the reasons I choose the 1 ton dually.
