I have an early 99 F350 Crew Cab dually with the 7.3(yeah baby) and its more truck then I'll ever need. I tow a 25ft car hauler with either my 93 Mustang drag car in it or me and some friends bikes when we go to the track. Its got 115K miles on it and I paid $11K for it so I think I got a pretty good deal. Only problem is the truck weighs close to 11K lbs so the fuel mileage sucks ass. I think the best I've ever gotten was 13mpg and that was keeping it below 70mph the whole time.

Diesels are great but if you dont need one then I wouldn't waste the money. Before my F350 I had a 2001 Chevy 2500 with a 6.0 gas motor and it pulled all of the above alright but it was constantly up & down shifting on the hwy and the tranny was taking a beating. With my F350 I can pull in od and just cruise.

I guess it all boils down to what you want to tow.
I guess I should try to sell my F350. YEAH RIGHT !!!!

I dont know enough about them to be biased but I like my truck so I'll stick with it.
