Just bought a Ford F250 crew cab 4x4

I'm pulling a Saleem lite with it to Wyoming. What you guys think of the truck? Its a no frills model.

Depends on the engine/etc. but with the lite you're probably under 5k anyway. Should be slick as butta'. You probably could have gotten away with a 150 without much trouble, but the 250 should give you room to grow. ;-)

Caveat: As long it doesn't have the 6.0. lol Then it will break down no matter WHAT yer towin.

I pull my Flagstaff which comes in at 6660 lbs loaded with an F150 so I doubt you would have a problem as noted before with a lite TT with a F250. I wish I got that truck instead of mine, now we have decided we want to upgrade and instead of just getting a new TT or 5er we need a new truck too.

I take it with the comment above, the Ford Powerstroke 6.0 was not the engine of choice? We are debating going with the 6.2l gas vice the diesel, but I don't want to steal this thread as this is probably a topic in its own.

Kewl my brother a mechanic likes the 6.2 that I got said it was a good engine now. 2015. I wanted the 250 because I will be doing ranching in the next five years or so and plan on keeping this truck awhile. It has hauling package and will go to 10000.

I wanted a Ford 250 but it wouldnt fit in my garage (too long) had to go with a GMC2500HD because it was 5 in. shorter. I like it but I liked the Ford better.
