Oil change issue.

So I took the 250 to the local Dealer for a pretrip oil change.

Then I did something I should not have.

I test drove a new truck......








The oil change was rather spendy....

They are trying to move out the 2016's for the 2017's so some good deals can be had.

F350, 6.7L, Reese 28K package and I am into this for less than the 250 when I bought it.

Of course. Yea I would be looking for a 2014-2015 low miles. After the stories on here I might steer clear of ones actually used for towing. lol

The 2014 F150 I have was setup for max tow and only had 7500 miles on it and never towed anything. The guy found out he needed a F350 for a big toy hauler and didn't want to take a big hit so he held it a bit and he wife drive it a little. In the end he took the big hit.

The boss has been talking about a bigger FW so I did this time what I should have done in 2010 when I ordered the 250...

I just hope I will not need a Kenworth after this.....
