Well my official first post is here

Hello all,

I've been in the market for awhile now for something to tow the racecar to the racetrack as well as do some good ole' daily driving with. I've been leaning towards a 1 ton dually, not only for the towing but just because I think they look amazing. My limit has been about 20k dollars and I seem to be finding a lot of 01-03's crew cabs in that price range.

Autotrader has been a haven for me for finding these trucks and I found one that really catches my eye. From reading in other posts I figured I would post it up because I fall in love with this truck more and more everytime I look at it.


Cars For Sale: Car Details - AutoTrader.com

here is the add for it, I'll be using it to tow a 2900lb car, with either a open 19foot trailer or a 28ft enclosed 5th wheel. let me know what you guys think of it.

Zach

Welcome to Powerstroke.org

That is a good looking truck. With it being a 2003, I would wonder which engine it has.

If you paid for a membership, then yes, you should be a premium member, and that would give you access to OASIS reports. If that truck is a 6.0, I would definately take advantage and check the OASIS.
