    Default New to Me Tow Ride

    I finally pulled the trigger and got a bigger truck to pull my boat with. Ive been thinking of towing some other things lately so i decided if i could swing it i would buy a new truck.

    I really wanted a new 2010 Dodge Cummings but i can fork out the 55K for what i want so i scaled it down a little LOL. I have always liked the Fords and i have to admit i don't like the 08 up F250-F350 Super Duty. I just don't like the front end. I really like the front end on my 06.

    What i decided to do was get a like new 06.

    This is what i got.

    06 Black F350 Crew Cab 4x4 6.0 Turbo Diesel. Lariat package.
    It has full leather, power everything like you expect.
    Sunroof
    Power Rear Sliding window.
    Heated Mirrors
    Full Power seats
    Heated Seats
    6 Disk changer with I Phone MP3 cable
    Auto Climate Control
    Front End Leveling kit

    This thing is a huge beast of a truck, and as soon as i drove it i loved it LOL.

    It also only has 46K miles and after my deal and trade in of Big Blue i paid 16K plus 4/48 complete warranty.

    Wont have any issues on pulling Fierah now.

    Got Ying and Yang for colors scheme. I really wanted a white truck to match but just couldn't get a solid white one.

    Newty this truck will look bad ass in front of your boat bro but i got my own Ebony and Ivory now LOL.

    Well it wouldn't be very good to roll out to the lake with a whimpy system in my big azz truck and let my boat blow her away.

    Yea ill be upgrading it but nothing to the level the boat has. New speakers and a pair of the smaller Exile Amps. Need to figure out a decent sub situation for it.

    Claudia already put the brakes on me now LOL. I'm pretty much done spending any money on toys till next year haha.

    < whistles Happy Birthday to me > LOL

    Congrats on your new truck. If you want a programmer for your truck my dad has one from his 06 that he is no longer using. Its the Edge Evolution http://www.edgeproducts.com/product.php?pk=54&pvk=217 The exhaust temp was never installed in his truck so that is still with it too. Don't know what he wants for it, bout I doubt its too much.

    Diesels are the only way to roll. I'll never have a gas truck again. I have an 07 Dodge mega cab with the last of the 5.9L motor. I can't stand the new slant nose Dodge truck grills. My buddy has the same truck you have and it is nice...a little more noise inside the cab than my Dodge (even he says so). Ford has great interiors in their trucks.
