Well took my daughter out this weekend for a nice stay down in Mohican in loudonville Ohio. While pulling into town I started having a ton of black smoke and no power (2006 f-350 6.0 PSD). Uh oh, so limped it to the CG, scanned the truck and ordered some EGR parts. Arrived the next day, installed and problem is way worse that imagined. Limped it to dealer for repairs. Wow turbo failure. Lots of money and now stranded. Looked on the lot the by chance had he exact truck I had but new and with a warranty. Called the DW and explained the situation and got my A-plan pin and away I went. I couldn't sink
Any more money into the old 6.0, spent nearly a fortune fixing her up constantly and no warranty. Now I got this.....plus come CG pics. Btw the camper was great, no problems with the Salem.

Man, that's a beautiful truck. Now it's time to get a bigger, longer, and heavier trailer.

I agree I too have always been partial to Chevy but the fords are really nice trucks. Does that have the 6.7 diesel in it?

I used to be partial to Chevy and then I bought a Ford. I will never go back. DW asked the other day what I loved more the truck or her and was upset when I thought about it.

Very nice truck I am jealous
