New to me Truck
« on: February 11, 2017, 12:27:33 PM »
After three years of looking at truck I bought one to replace my crusty rusty 11 year old truck. Now I have to wait patiently (yeah right :redneck:) for the plow to come in and get built before I pick it up.

To appease Tom's curiosity and needs for pics here is the dealer link.

P.S.

Tom, it's getting a 9'-2" BOSS V.

Sweet! And acres of black paint to share the detailing of here!  :funny:

Looks like it already has plow mounts on it (Boss maybe?) though. Just mounts and no plow included or did you want a different plow?

BTW, you're a better man than I to plow with a dually!

Now you see why I said I've lost my mind buying a Black truck!  :crazy:

As far as plowing with a dually is concerned I'm not to terribly worried after plowing with our loader with the pusher on it. You are correct it has a BOSS mount and harness already on it the only thing I needed was the plow with the hand held control.

Since it's a 2008, I'm assuming it's a 6.0 liter. Planning on doing anything to the motor?

Luckily it's got the 6.4 that's been deleted and studded already with an H&S Mini Max. :hp:

Sweet! I took an F-350 with the same tuner kit & mods to Florida and back to pick up a trailer a few years ago. It went like stink!

Your right! For a truck that's over 9000 pounds it scoots.

Well I'm officially jealous.  I love the look of those years and I want a dually so bad. 

As a little side story.  A local guy was at the plow shop the other day.  He was out plowing in his 2016 F350 with a very expensive plow when he caught a curb and bent the frame of the truck.

I've seen our guys run into some pretty big stuff and never bend a frame. He must have "caught" the curb at a pretty good clip - head on.

That's what I said.  I said he should get a cheaper plow so the plow frame bends before the trucks.

Very nice rig! That is a lot of paint!!!

Nice that it's been deleted and set up already.

You will be able to push a ton of snow with that beast.

Congrats Nice purchase. 

It seems to be the year for vehicle replacements for everyone here.

I got a '14 Nav in Tux Black in the end of NOV; I have not had much time to work on it due to my day job. 
- I did the roof rack delete on it so it would fit in some parking garages and 'clay pad' the whole thing with banana ice and replaced the puddle lamps with the LEDs ones.

The Mrs' '17 MKZ in Black Velvet finally came in. We ordered it in OCT.
That thing is a beast with the 3.0TT. At 350HP & 400 ft/lbs it $h!ts and gets.
I am waiting out the new paint for warmer weather to OptiGloss it

More black vehicles? I must be missing something here. On the other hand, none of you will have any excuses for not sharing full details come spring. (Of course for Dave, spring does not commence until mid-July.)

I didnt get a new truck but I seriously need to get mine cleaned up a bit this week before I leave for Tennessee on Friday.  Too bad my road is straight mud.
