nice truck. did you not like the duramax you had? or is this truck better suited for the size of 5th wheel you have. locally, there is an f-450 diesel, king ranch cclb 4wd, 08 model i believe. i have to turn my head every time we go by the dealer

Beautiful truck! Of course I'm biased. I have a 2011, F-350 dually Lariat the same color as yours with all bells and whistles except 4 wheel drive. I got the limited slip rear end, instead. You are going to love that truck! BTW, the mirrors actually stick out further from the truck than the hips. Congrats and enjoy!

There's no substitute for torque! The 6.7 has plenty for the QBOK. I personally went with the SRW, only because I drive 50 mile a day as a 'daily driver' and really didn't make sense to go with the DRW, (for me). I've don't anticipate any issues, maybe an occasional side gust. I can you one thing, pulling that thing home on 1-495 (three lanes) in Massashuettes, when I was pulling in the right lane, I had big trucks passing me in the middle lane and NEVER felt them. My first diesel and first 5ver, and so far, couldn't be happier. You'll love it EarthStation
