At the time (01) it was the big dog on the block... Planned on trading every few years. Then the 6.0 came out..... Then it wasn't worth enough to even mess with anymore. Now my goal is to hit 479,800 (to the moon and back) then I will retire her.

Other reason, all my friends had one, and they all still have them.

Wanted a diesel because I thought I was going to be towing a lot. Got a great deal on it and for how little I've spent on it, I would pay almost double to get a similarly equipped gas truck.

had a 07 F150 and thought i was gonna kill it with the towing i was doing so i decided it was time to buy one with a good motor history and be able to burn alternative fuel. well within a week i will be testing alternative fuel to cut fuel cost

Do I need 2 reasons for each PSD? If so, I'll have to start making a list of 8 reasons... LOL

The first one started as a work related issue, the single wheel gasser work van needed to be bigger... so I found the DRW cut-a-way utility box van in about 2005 or '06.

2007 brought the addition of the F350 dually, which replaced the '84 K30 which had been a work truck at the time... WOW what an imrovement over a turbo'd 6.2L.

So I would have to say that my reasons were based on having driven PSD's at the place I worked in the late '90's... power and fuel economy.

Then the expanding family was the reason for the extened cab trucks to come into the picture, so there's 5 more reasons... we'll allocate some of them to the reason for the Excursion.

So here we are now, we have 4 of them...
