Traded our '08 F250 V10 for an '08 F350 V10 with an 8' bed so we can start hauling the golf cart. Took a test tow today before our first trip next weekend with the new TV.

Nice looking rig, looks like you are giving the F350 a decent payload test.

Yeah, you got that right lol! The payload and 8' bed was the reason for the switch. Actually had less miles on the F250 (41k) than the F350 has (46k), but once we got the golf cart, we wanted to be able to take it with us camping. Between the hitch and cart, we're already at 2k lbs of payload, a little over half of the available 3681 lbs of payload, so a decent test indeed.

Nice looking truck and there is no such thing as toys in trucks. They are tools to make our job of towing easier.
