Thumbs down The gutless wonder

I have a 2004 6.o f-350 4x4. I can't belive that it is normal, but the dealer keeps telling me it is. If I have a small trailer on it and try to run over a 2x4 from a stop, it can't do it. This thing has no power at an idle. Countless times I have had to put it in 4-low to even make it move with a trailer, and forget about reverse. Maybe if it would have been a manual I could slip the clutch to spool up the turbo. I have taken great care of this thing, my wife bought it new, and it still only has 30,000 miles on it. Can anyone confirm or deny that this is as good as it gets?

Even when mine was stock I had lots of power. Sounds like something is wrong with yours.

I would say NO! Something is has to be wrong, even when The Granny is sick, she still will run, she may not like it but she still has power.
