My friend owns a ford dealership and gives me dealer cost on vehicles. The difference between the 2013 F350 Lariat DRW and the 2013 F450 Lariat was $2000. Since i thought i needed the stability i chose the dually. Since I don't see too many F450's on the road and not much difference in price I ordered it. 8 weeks before it comes in.
Congrats on the new 450. You will be much hgappier with the 450 as it is a whole new animal comapred to a 250 or a 350. Axles, brake size and rear end can haul a tank. You were right with the dually's will help you a bunch.
Did you get the inbed 5th wheel mount and Reese 18K hitch or do you plan to mount something else?
Columbus 385bh is about 12k dry and 16k max correct
