Every time I drive this truck, it gives me the feeling that it could survive through anything and most of all, will last forever. It has that heavy duty feeling everywhere, as if I'm driving some overbuilt dump truck that could take anything. It's not just the motor I'm talking about, it's the heavy gauge body, the way the doors shut to the suspension. I now own a truck where I don't have to second guess its ability to complete a task, worry about breaking it or simply how it's going to hold up. It's a wonderful feeling.
It's definitely not something you feel get with every vehicle. In a lot of vehicles, the test of time can start to bring them down. In these SD's, even having more miles that one could count in some cases, they seem to be bulletproof. Combine that with a 7.3 and you've got one long lasting, very durable tank of a truck that'll be by your side a lifetime.
I can't be the only one who has had these same thoughts.
