Talking Moving on!

After having my 95 for a year and a half, I'm hooked on Diesel. I had gone through a bunch of repairs and upgrades, but we finally decided (read as wife finally decided) we needed more room, hence a bigger truck. Plus the 5th wheel we upgraded is considerably larger than the one we had before.

So, moving on, we traded in the 95 on a 2000 F350 dually. It has a 5th wheel hitch already installed, which they left in for me, airbag overloads, the break controller, and ( a bonus here since I live in Deer country) a big honkin bumper with the grill guard built on it, ( place deer here, deer looses).

I must say, I am impressed with the power of this truck! We're making a trip to Ohio this June, so we are really looking forward to trying it out on the road.


The best defense is a good offense, and I'm really offensive!
